Less than a month before the start of the West-2017 exercises, Russia began to move its armored vehicles to Belarus, social networks users say.
User Brovar published photos of Russian military equipment in Belarus on his page in Twitter.
Apparently, the Russian command sent several dozen tanks to Belarus. It is noteworthy that on the tanks there are insignia of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as well as markings indicating the oversized cargo.
It is not specified when exactly the photographs were taken.
As it was reported earlier the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak called the Russian-Belarusian drills West-2017 at the border with Ukraine to be a threat and a hostile act.
The joint drills of Russia and Belarus West-2017 are planned for September. The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Olexandr Turchynov claimed that the joint drills can be the preparation for the offensive operation. The President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that West-2017 will not become the preparation for invasion to Ukraine.
