From a military point of view, the threat of the invasion of the Belarusian army on the territory of Ukraine remains. However, a direct military offensive from Belarus is unlikely at the moment.

Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, said this in an interview with Ukrainian military television.

Today, there is no direct threat from Belarus because a group of troops has not been created, and the management system of this group has not been deployed. This is the main element of the immediate preparation for hostilities

But the presence of seven battalions of the Belarusian armed forces near the border prompts the Ukrainian command to attract additional deterrent forces and strengthen intelligence.

It diverts resources and means from our eastern front. In addition, the constant movement of troops keeps us under tension. Separate elements, tactical episodes of possible offensive actions from the territory of Belarus are being developed
