Belarus will resist if Russia will try to take over the country and pass it off as some kind of success. In the event of an invasion, there will be no easy victory for the Russian Federation, since there are a lot of patriots in the power structures of Belarus.
“Belarusians are only outwardly calm, and they can endure for a long time. In fact, at one time I had contacts with people in law enforcement agencies. Many of them are patriots and ready to defend 360 degrees – that is, from threats from all sides. These are people who were trained in the use of special operations forces, special forces. Many of them are patriots, and in the event that forceful opposition begins, some kind of aggression, invasion, I think they will join this struggle. Therefore, to assume that everything is quiet and safe here, – this is unlikely,” said a military expert from Belarus Alexander Alesin.
According to the expert, if there is aggression, both those who are for Lukashenka and those who are against will unite.
"I don't think there will be an easy victory for Russia. Therefore, Russia is unlikely to decide in the conditions of the war with Ukraine on some kind of military operation with Belarus. She will lose her only ally, and gain only, perhaps, the partisan movement", Alesin summed up.
