“The situation can change very quickly when Russia loses Kherson. This combat-ready grouping in Kherson, after leaving Kherson, will be partially redeployed to the Zaporizhzhia direction, but some of them may move north to Belarus and pose a threat there. Therefore, we must be careful. this," Budanov said.

He stressed that at the current stage there is no threat of an invasion from Belarus.

“If we talk about Russian military activity in Belarus, now the presence of the Russian military in Belarus is not so large. There is only about 4,300 military personnel. This grouping is very limited in heavy weapons systems, and the majority – about 80% of the grouping – are mobilized personnel. Therefore, Summing up the above, I can say that at the current stage, there is no threat of an invasion from Belarus," he said.
