Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Aleksey Gromov said that the potential threat of an offensive by the Russian armed forces from the territory of Belarus would persist over the next year. He said this during  ;briefing.
According to him, this is due to the fact that the Russian group of troops will be deployed in Belarus to conduct exercises.
On the territory of Belarus, it is planned to conduct joint operational training of armed forces of Russia and Belarus under the name "Shield of the Union-2023".
At the same time, instead of the exercises "Center-2023" it is planned to conduct maneuvers of the armed forces of Russia and Belarus “West-2023”.
Gromov noted that a feature of these measures is that in both cases a Russian group of troops will be deployed on the territory of Belarus, which can be used for the corresponding actions.
Based on the above, over the next year, the potential threat of an offensive by the armed forces of the Russian Federation from the territory of Belarus will remain. .
