Quote from Budanov: "Actually, the number (of Russian troops in Belarus – editor's note) is insignificant, absolutely tiny."
Details: According to Budanov, there is currently no reason to believe that Russia will increase its troops in Belarus.
He added that there is no threat to Ukraine from Belarusian troops either - the Belarusian army is conducting planned drills, which the intelligence service knew about two and a half months before they started. If there is a threat, Intelligence will know about it.
On July 1, it became known that the exercises of the Belarusian armed forces at the country's training grounds have been extended until at least July 9.
On July 3, the self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that a single army had long been established in the union of Belarus and Russia and that he "decided a long time ago" that Belarus would take part in Russia's war against Ukraine .
