The alleged provocation at the border follows rising tensions between Poland and Belarus, with President Alexander Lukashenko stating that Belarus will confront Poland if it takes Western Ukraine, due to the alleged threat to national security of the republic, on Friday, June 17.

Speaking on fears that Poland may become a threat to his nation, Belarus’ President Lukashenko stated:

“We will have to react here. Because we cannot allow the Poles to surround us completely. It is a dangerous option. I said it back in the day: the Ukrainians and the Russians will ask us to help preserve the integrity. So that nobody would chop something off.”

“We see it. This is why I have to keep armed forces ready in the west and in the south. I deployed ten units along the border behind the border guard so that [enemies] could not infiltrate Belarus. And they had such ideas,” the President added.
