Ukraine’s military also announced that Russia had deployed battalions there. ISW experts stressed that such an attack by Belarus is unlikely. However, the risk must be taken seriously.

ISW sees the establishment of a field hospital as a sign that Russia may attack from there. “Field hospitals are not necessary for exercises and represent preparation for war.” At the beginning of the year, the establishment of such military hospitals in Belarus was also a sign of this – immediately before the start of the great Russian invasion.
