The tightening of border security by Ukrainian authorities with Belarus comes amid rising tensions between the two neighbors.
In fact, tensions between Ukraine and Belarus escalated after Russia launched a special military operation on February 24. Belarus has repeatedly stated that it has no plans to participate in the Russian campaign, but has warned that it will respond if attacked.
The Ministry of Defense of Belarus recently announced the unexpected inspection of weapons and logistics equipment to ensure combat readiness. Belarus’ move comes after Security Council Chairman Alexander Volfovich accused Ukraine of planting mines, setting up barricades along the border and deploying reconnaissance groups to infiltrate Belarusian territory.
Belarus also believes that Ukraine is concentrating large military units along the border. They previously estimated that about 10,500 Ukrainian troops are stationed in Rovno province, 4,500 are concentrated in the east near Chernihiv province and about 5,500 in the central region, outside the capital Kiev.
