Lukashenko: We see true goals of the events NATO is staging
The events NATO is staging around Belarus' borders represent reconnaissance and exploration of the possible future theater of war. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during the conference held at premises of the Defense Ministry on 26 May to discuss military security, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko pointed out that the United States and its satellites continue pursuing a policy in favor of aggravating tensions with effectively the entire world. A hot confrontation with Russia is in progress. Military presence near Belarus as Russia's ally is growing and large-scale exercises are being held.

“Under the guise of defense concepts of these maneuvers they practice the redeployment of troops from America, Western Europe and the creation of force groupings. We see true goals of the events NATO is staging. In essence they reconnoiter and explore a possible future theater of war. In accordance with America's design Europe and NATO are engaged in a global confrontation with Russia. In this fight Belarus will have to face unprecedented and lengthy economic, political, and even military pressure,” the Belarusian leader stated.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, military pressure will be exercised via Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and the NATO troops, which are deployed over there, and by means of supporting and escalating combat operations in Ukraine.

Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that the emerging situation requires the troops to be ready to adequately respond to military intentions targeting Belarus at any minute.
