Ukraine’s neighbor Poland is also experiencing increased military tensions.
Poland’s Defense Ministry decided to deploy additional equipment and troops to the border region after two Belarusian helicopters violated its airspace on Feb. 2 local time.
Earlier, Poland was already on high alert, claiming that the Wagner Group, a Russian mercenary group that moved into Belarus, had moved to the Polish border.
Belarus claimed this was untrue and that Poland was using this as a pretext to justify its troop buildup along the border.
It also said it was considering incorporating the Wagner Group into the Belarusian military.
