The statement by Latushka
Pavel Latushka, the head of the National Anti-Crisis Management, wrote on Twitter that according to his sources, Lukashenka had agreed to deploy 120,000 soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces in November — February and additionally plans to mobilize 100,000 soldiers in Belarus.
Pavel Latushka did not publish any evidence to this statement. As in the case of the report by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense on the deployment of 20,000 soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces in Belarus, we can’t confirm Latushka’s statement.
As of today, there are no convincing facts that would prove the redeployment of Russian Armed Forces to Belarus. There are also doubts about the potential mobilization in Belarus. Units of the Belarusian Armed Forces do not take part in combat operations in Ukraine. If Lukashenka has some kind of army that is damaged in battles and can be used, why does he need to conduct mobilization?
We would like to note that irresponsible and unsubstantiated statements by politicians on sensitive and socially important topics do not help the common cause – the fight against the Lukashenka regime and Russian aggression. In order not to discredit themselves, authors of such statements (along with the publication of «exclusive» information) should also provide data confirming the validity of the information. Otherwise, the systematic misleading of the public and foreign partners will lead to the results described in the fable «The Boy Who Cried Wolf«.
We continue to monitor all military activity in Belarus and promptly inform you of all changes. If you notice anything unusual, please contact @HajunBYbot.
