"Another problem is fakes. Open lies on the Internet: foreign troops in Belarus, equipment from the Russian Federation in Belarus ... As for foreign troops, today there is not a single person from other states in Belarus," Lukashenko said.
According to the President, the military equipment that moves around the country belongs to Belarus.
“They took them off, not realizing that these were Belarusian armored personnel carriers, not Russian ones. And that they were moving towards the western border, when we decided that we need to take additional measures to protect state sovereignty and independence, the state border in the west,” the head of state said.
Also, this information was confirmed in the Russian Federation, reports Meduza. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Russia has obligations on military assistance to Belarus within the framework of international treaties, but now there is no need for such assistance.
As we reported before, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko claims that the army units located on the country's western border are brought to full combat readiness. According to the politician, there's a coordinated external threat for his country.
