According to sources cited by the Belarusian portal “Nasha Niva”, Alexander Lukashenko decided to hold a secret mobilization in Belarus. It will be conducted under the guise of military fitness test. Men from the countryside must be mobilized first, and the first phase of mobilization will completely ignore the residents of the largest Belarusian cities. The mobilization raises the possibility of an escalation of conflict along the Belarusian-Ukrainian border.
Alexander Lukashenko decided not to publicly announce the mobilization. Such a decision was made as a result of public reaction after the announcement of partial mobilization in Russia. “Secret mobilization” would be carried out under the guise of frequent military fitness tests and inviting conscripts to appeals, colloquially known as “recruitment for parties”.
The recruitment of up to 2,000 would instead mean the addition of posts for short combat missions such as artillery. – an officer of the Armed Forces of Belarus told “Nasha Niva”.
If more than 5,000 people gather, the alarm should be sounded. It refers to the creation of a battle group for a specific purpose. If the aggregation is more than 10,000 it means that there are many recruitment groups – Adds an interlocutor.
According to information received by “Nasha Niva”, only villagers are receiving summons so far. Big cities were not affected by the first wave of “hidden mobilization”.
More emphasis is placed on specialists who are not in the Russian army Sources say.
Maybe the drivers were invited to a “meeting”. Mobilization also includes cooks and technical staff. There are many indications that the first wave of mobilization consisted mainly of people who did not need training and, moreover, could train colleagues of Russian troops.
Alexander Lukashenko, the Belarusian commander-in-chief, declares publicly Belarus would only join the war if an attack took place on its territory. At the same time, the propaganda presents the narrative that such an attack is only a matter of time. This is happening because the West is putting pressure on the Ukrainian authorities.
At the same time, Lukashenka said that “more than a thousand” Russian soldiers would arrive in Belarus and agreed that Belarus would participate in a “special military operation”.
According to my information, arrangements are underway to allow Russians into Belarusian training centers and military units. We have training locations and instructors. Russia is demanding from Lukashenka that part of the Russian army be trained in Belarus and manned by the Belarusian Defense Forces. – said one of the interlocutors of “Nasha Niva” earlier.
According to the sources of the Belarusian website, Lukashenka is waiting for a reason to officially join the Russian aggression against Ukraine.
Ukrainians have every reason to prevent another attack on Kiev, which can be determined by ulterior motives. At the same time, any preemptive attack on the Russians stationed in Belarus could be interpreted as an attack on Belarus and become an excuse for Lukashenka to join the fight. – says one of the interlocutors.
Before the Russian attack on Ukraine, Alexander Lukashenko predicted it The war would end with a Russian victory in “three or four days.” Russia’s defeat in the first phase of the war came as a surprise to Lukashenka. The Minsk campaign continued to speak of the inevitability of a victory for Russia and described events in the same spirit as the Russian campaign. “Russia cannot lose,” Lukashenka has said many times.
