As part of the rotation, Russia has now withdrawn almost all of its military from Belarus, where they had been training.

Source: Andrii Demchenko, State Border Guard Service spokesman, at a briefing in Kyiv.

Quote: "The situation on the border with Belarus remains under [our] full control.

Russia also uses Belarus as a training ground for its troops.

Details: In addition, according to Demchenko, the State Border Guard does not observe any organised arrivals of Russian mercenaries from private military companies in Belarus, as it was previously reported, while Belarus was preparing sites to host them. »
