Last week, a reporter for one of Germany’s leading newspapers, Bild, Julian Ropcke, tweeted that Belarus has deployed its troops on the country’s borders with Ukraine.
“Dictator Lukashenko is also moving the Belarusian army to the Ukrainian border (here 60 km north of the Rivne Oblast border),” he said on Twitter.
It is also important to note that the Biden administration on Monday renewed US sanctions on nine state-owned companies in Belarus for human rights violations by President Alexander Lukashenko’s regime.
