NATO: No indication of imminent entry of Belarus into war

7:34 PM: NATO has seen no evidence that Belarus wants to take an active part in Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. Despite the deployment of troops on the border with Ukraine, it is still believed that the country does not want to formally intervene in the war, a representative of the military alliance said on the sidelines of a meeting of defense ministers in Brussels on Wednesday. He cited the threat of Western sanctions as a possible reason.

Referring to Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko, he said: “I don’t think we should doubt that Lukashenko understands that the full force of the sanctions imposed on Russia will also be used against Belarus if the Belarusian armed forces carry out similar operations against Ukraine.”

Lukashenko recently announced the formation of a joint regional military unit between his country’s armed forces and the Russian army. However, the country of ten million people has not yet actively participated in the war of aggression against Ukraine. But according to the West, Belarus serves as a staging post and retreat area for Russia.
