Заморское мясо по-белорусски часть 2

Recently, Kremlin propaganda has been resorting to attempts to cause panic among the Ukrainian population — a whole set of disinformation activities is being carried out for this purpose. But misleading information is only one component of the Kremlin’s hybrid warfare. Russia’s military command actively uses proxy forces both for direct participation in combat operations and for reconnaissance and subversive activities. Belarus played a key role in the plans of the Russian General Staff — it was planned, and successfully used, as a bridgehead for the offensive of ground forces, as well as for the basing of aviation, and the training of newly formed units from mobilized personnel. Rumour has it that there was an agreement between Putin and Lukashenko that Belarusian troops would also get involved in the fighting against Ukraine. However, the Belarusian president manages to evade his promises to Vladimir Vladimirovich. What does he do?

The troops of Belarus, as part of the army of the Union State, are entrusted with the task of intelligence support to the units of the Russian Armed Forces temporarily based in Belarus. No one is particularly interested in how they obtain this information. No framework has been established. Given the experience of organizing a refugee crisis on the Belarusian-Polish border, it is not surprising that the Belarusian special services decided to use their database of illegals and legally present citizens of other countries in this situation, too.
