Ukraine suspects Russia is about to send more troops from Belarus

The Ukrainian side suspects that Russia is planning to send troops stationed in Belarus to areas controlled by Moscow.

On November 27, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine alleged that Russia appeared to be planning to move some units and personnel stationed in Belarus to territories controlled by Moscow.

“The enemy is transferring troops and equipment to replenish the damaged units,” the General Staff of the Ukrainian Army said.

Russia has not yet commented on the information from Ukraine. Both Russia and Ukraine now face casualties in terms of numbers after more than nine months of hostilities and a harsh winter is approaching.

Earlier this month, General Mark Milley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the number of Russian servicemen killed and wounded after months of the war with Ukraine may have exceeded 100,000, and the Kiev side seems to have suffered similar casualties.

Mr. Milley said that this is a war that causes great loss of life, while both sides of Russia and Ukraine have their own announcements about each other’s casualties. However, these numbers are often quite different from each other.

Tensions between Russia, Belarus, Kiev, and the West escalated sharply in recent times when Moscow launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24.

Belarus confirmed that it took part in the military operation in Ukraine, but did not send troops directly to the battle.

Besides, as an ally of Moscow, Minsk affirmed that it will “not allow anyone to attack the Russians from behind on the territory of Belarus”.

Belarus in October announced that it had joined Russia in forming a joint military force to deal with “increasing tensions on the western border”.

Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko announced that 70,000 Belarusian servicemen and 15,000 Russian troops have joined the Joint Forces between the two countries and conducted many joint exercises near the border with Ukraine.

The decision came as Lukashenko accused NATO leaders and some European countries of “considering aggressive options” against Belarus, which could even lead to a nuclear attack.

The President of Belarus said on November 27 that the US “did not allow” the Ukrainian leadership to start negotiations with Russia.

He also suggested that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky should sit at the negotiating table with Russia to “compromise rather than set preconditions”.

After months of fighting, tensions between Russia and Ukraine still show no signs of abating. Confrontations on the battlefield are still very fierce.

Meanwhile, the peaceful negotiation plan to resolve the Ukraine crisis has not yet made any positive progress. The two sides are in conflict with each other about the conditions to be able to negotiate.

In the past time, Ukraine has made some progress when countering Russia in Kharkov, Kherson. Observers say that with the momentum on the battlefield, Ukraine can gain a greater advantage at the negotiating table.

However, Russia is said to be actively reducing the pace of the war, to have time to prepare for the newly mobilized new recruits in the past time, as well as to add military equipment and weapons to conduct military operations. large-scale counterattack when the cold winter is over.
