The state-run Belta news agency reported on Monday that the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko announced that both Russia and Belarus will prepare a joint military task force in response to what he called an aggravation of tension on the country’s western borders.
Lukashenko also said that the two countries had already started pulling forces together two days ago, as the explosion on Russia’s bridge to Crimea made a big impact. Russian forces used locations in Belarus as a staging area for their invasion of Ukraine on February 24. From these bases, they sent troops and materiel into northern Ukraine.
