Belarus' role in Russia's war against Ukraine

Belarus has been assisting Russia in its war against Ukraine. At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russian terrorists attacked Ukraine, including from Belarusian territory. The enemy captured parts of the Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Sumy regions. Ukrainian forces later reclaimed these territories.

Russians have also used Belarus to launch missile strikes against Ukraine. The so-called Russian-Belarusian exercises also allow Moscow to maintain its troops in Belarus.

The Commander of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Serhii Naiev, emphasized that Ukrainian military personnel are monitoring the border with Belarus and are ready to react promptly in case of any threats.
