Belarus deploys missile systems on the border with Poland

 News portal Niezalezna(.)pl reports that the Belarusian missile systems have been deployed in the immediate vicinity of the Polish border. 

According to the Belarusian Ministry of Defense, the move is to "check the combat readiness of the army."

Meanwhile, President Lukashenka, during his visit to the headquarters of the Air Force and the Air Defense Command, announced that the army was put on high alert.

The press release  says that "the military clearly shows that Polonez and Tochka misile systems will immediately react to any attempt of aggression against Belarus."

Deployment of tactical missile systems near the border with Poland may be another provocation. Belarus is actively involved in both the war in Ukraine and the attempts at destabilization of neighboring countries - including Poland.
