“We know what to do if we see signs of the creation of a grouping of armed forces, which can be used through the territory of Belarus to attack Ukraine. According to our intelligence and information that we receive from the intelligence of our Western partners, Russia is very slowly withdrawing its troops. Withdrawing is true, but very slowly and what they promised to withdraw the troops by May does not correspond to reality”, – Taran added.
