How serious a group gathered the Armed Forces of Belarus in the Volyn and Polissya areas
Recently, the issue of participation of the Republic of Belarus in the war in Ukraine has gained new momentum – it intensified against the background of increasing reports of Belarusian equipment to the border with Ukraine , working off the military Armed Forces quite threatening elements of offensive action on armored personnel carriers, the last – 20 km from the border with Ukraine ), as well as reports that Belarus plans to double its army.
At the same time, today the General Staff published the following information: currently up to seven battalions of the Armed Forces of Belarus are concentrated in the Volyn and Polissya directions, which are engaged in strengthening the Ukrainian-Belarusian border in Brest and Gomel regions.
From its own sources, Defense Express learned that these are six battalions – two from 38 ODShBr (Brest), 103 OPDBR (Vitebsk), 6 OMBR (Grodno), as well as a detachment of 5 OBR SPP (Maryina Gorka).
From open information we can roughly understand what forces this group is focused on. For example, 38 ODSHBr has up to 1800 people and is armed, in particular, BTR-80, 88-mm mortars BM-37, 122-mm howitzers D-30, several 23-mm ZU-23 and MANPADS “Needle” .
Next – 103 OPDBr. Number – about 1300-1400, armed with, in particular, BTR-70MB1, mortar “Nona-M1”, armored vehicles Volat V1, BRDM “Cayman”, Chinese armored vehicle Dongfeng Mengshi EQ2050F.
At the same time, 6 OMBRs are designed for about 1,500 people and are equipped with T-72B, BMP-2, BRM-1K, MT-LB tanks, self-propelled ATG “Konkurs” and “Sturm-S”, as well as such mortars “Sani” and BM -37, SAU “Govzdyka” and “Acacia”, as well as MLRS “Hail”. Plus a detachment of 5 OBR SPP.
From this information we can draw such a simple conclusion – it cannot be said that there are signs of Belarus forming a strike group to conduct offensive operations in these areas, but the threat from this country has not disappeared – the fact of such activity near our borders forces our Armed Forces to keep the number of equipment and military for possible deterrence of the attack of the Armed Forces of Belarus.
