Moscow is sending an unspecified number of US troops to the Far East in Belarus to participate in a major military exercise. This deployment will further bolster Russia’s military presence near Ukraine, fueling growing fears in the West about a Kremlin-led invasion of the neighboring country.
Amid heightened visual acuity, the White House warned on Tuesday that Russia could attack its neighbor “at any moment” and the UK had delivered a shipment of anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.
Deputy Defense Minister of Russia Alexander Fomin said today that the Russian-Belarusian inherited viruses are manifested in their own development of the virus.
The Ukrainian authorities have warned that Russia may attack the country with a certain interest, including with the territory of Belarus, which is an ally of Moscow.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense announced on Tuesday that Kiev had received a shipment of UK anti-tank weapons, noting that it would help “strengthen our defense capability.”
Russia has already begun the transfer of troops to participate in military exercises in Belarus. Fomin said that until February 9, the use and personnel involved in the Allied Resolve 2022 exercise, which is expected to be held from February 10 to 20, will be fully deployed.
Fomin did not say exactly how many troops would be involved in the exercise, but did mention that Russia had deployed a dozen Su-35 fighter jets and several air defense units to Belarus. At the same time, Moscow has already approached the Ukrainian border with about 100,000 people with tanks and other consumables.
Russia denies any plans to invade Ukraine, while demanding a guarantee from the West that Ukraine and other former Soviet republics will not be accepted into the NATO bloc. In addition, Moscow demands a guarantee that the North Atlantic Alliance will not attack Ukraine and use its troops. Washington and its allies responded to Moscow’s demands during the Russian-American discussions in Geneva and subsequent meetings of the Russia-NATO Security Council, which were held in Geneva and Brussels in importance.
The Deputy Minister of Defense of Russia said today that the exercises in Belarus, which include an unspecified number of formations of the Eastern Military District of Russia, provide for the development of a concept for concentrating the entire military presence in the west.
“There may be such a situation when the forces and means of the grouping will be insufficient to guarantee the security of the Union of States, and we must be ready to strengthen it,” Fomin said at a briefing in Moscow with the involvement of foreign military attachés. “Together with the Belarusian concept, an understanding has been reached that all the potential potential organization of the state will be involved in general protection.”
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced on Tuesday the start of the accelerated formation of reserve battalions, which will make it possible to quickly deploy 130,000 recruits for the deployment of the country’s Armed Forces, which has 246,000 people.

NATO Director General Jens Stoltenberg met on Tuesday in Berlin with Secretary to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. He said that “the main task now is success in the political dialogue” in order to prevent an attack on Ukraine.
“NATO Allies are ready to meet again with Russia, and today I brought together Russia and all offensive allies to participate in a series of meetings within the framework of the Russian Council – an offensive in the near future, in order to accept our concerns, and also listen to their concerns from the Russian side,” Stoltenberg said.
He added that NATO “in the near future” will present its proposals in response to Russian demands, and expressed hope for the opportunity to discuss initiatives for discussion.
“We need to see what happens to Russia, and this will be its character turning point,” said the head of NATO.
Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly, who is currently visiting Ukraine, denounced the Russian troop buildup Tuesday as “unacceptable”. Joly noted Canada’s excess in training the Ukrainian military, a choice that Ottawa is currently considering exceeding the safety threshold for military equipment.
