Today, Lukashenka said that the Belarusian side has not deployed "a single squad, not a single company - the military - there, at the border". However, we have information that this is not the case and his words are lies. Since military personnel from various military units have been located at the Belarusian-Polish border for more than a month.
Sources of motolko.help report that paratroopers, soldiers of internal troops, border guards and officers from various military units from different cities of Belarus are brought to the Belarusian-Polish border. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of Poland has several times reported on provocations with migrants at the border, which, according to their information, involved Belarusian security forces. In particular, today, the Polish department reported that the Belarusian special services armed migrants with stun grenades.

According to information received by motolko.help from several sources, it is known that since October 25, units of the 5th separate special forces brigade, which are based in Mariyna Gorka, have been at the border. It is reported that conscripts and reservists of this brigade were seconded to Military Unit 92616 — the 38th separate guards air assault brigade (is a part of the Special Forces of the Republic of Belarus) and sent to the border in the Grodno region. It is worth noting that it was officer Roman Gavrilov, an employee of the Brest Special Forces, who shot protester Gennady Shutov in the back of the head after which he died.
«In the Grodno region there are paratroopers from Brest. In the field, they live near the border. It is near the accumulation of migrants. From the armed forces, there are servicemen of the Special Forces military unit 89417, Mariyna Gorka, and military unit 92616, Brest«,–the sources say.
In particular, Stanislav Zaryn, the press secretary of the Minister-coordinator of the special services of Poland, published a video where it is clear that the Belarusian security forces are in the so-called «fence detachments» and don’t allow migrants deep into Belarus.
