What is happening in Belarus

We will remind, on Monday, January 16,

 joint exercises of Russia and Belarus began. 

The training is expected to last until February 1.

Before that, Belarus began to urgently 

modernize the barracks for Russian pilots.

As of January 16, 

Ukraine did not record an increase in

 groups of Russian and Belarusian troops on the territory of the Republic of Belarus near the borders.

The head of the State Border Service, Serhii Deineko, indicated that there had not yet been any activities within the framework of the announced joint aviation exercises between Russia and Belarus. 

As Western media write, 

for a new attack from Belarus 

The armed forces of Russia are not yet strong enough.

 According to Welt, there are currently

 about 13,000 Russian military personnel in Belarus. 

For an offensive that would not end in an immediate defeat for Putin, the Russian Federation 

a multiple number of troops will be needed.
