Currently, the Belarusian army holds only seven battalions, which are now stationed on a rotating basis near the borders of Ukraine. And the time required for the deployment of shock forces is 3-4 weeks. This was announced by the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, Vadym Skibitsky in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.

According to the representative of the military intelligence of Ukraine, now some special units of the Russian Federation, together with the units of the special operations forces of Belarus, are conducting joint exercises to practice actions on the territory of Ukraine. Trainings go along the entire borderline. A similar training program was observed during all previous joint exercises of the armies of Belarus and Russia. That is why the main threat now lies in the actions of sabotage and reconnaissance groups.

At the same time, taking into account the experience of March-April, the formation of the strike group will take 3-4 weeks, of which 2-3 will be needed for the return of Russian army units to Belarus. At the same time, the conduct of offensive hostilities by the Belarusian armed forces is considered to be extremely unlikely on its own.

In general, now the number of Belarusian units, which are rotated near the border, is 4-6 thousand people.

There are also 1,500 personnel of Russian units in the country - air component, air defense, special forces and missile forces.
