That is according to the spokesman for the Defense Intelligence of Defense Ministry of Ukraine, Vadym Skibitskyi.
"In Belarus, we expect an intensification of combat training, because a new training year will begin in the Armed Forces of this country on December 1. The troops will be deployed in the training grounds, working out various issues of combat coordination, while inspection of forces and troops will be held. Therefore, we expect active measures on the territory of Belarus, primarily from the operational and combat training. We are ready for this. But I’d like to note that today there are no signs of any powerful strike group being set up on the territory of Belarus," Vadym Skibitskyi told on the air of the national telethon “Yedyni novyny”.

At the same time, according to the spokesman for the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, approximately 9,000 servicemen from the 1st tank army have conducted measures on combat training and cohesion of units. Military intelligence does not exclude two options for employment of these troops: either from the territory of belarus, or a rotational return to the territory of Ukraine, possibly at Kharkiv direction.
In the future, a threat of employment of the grouping of union state belarus-russia remains. However, the weapons are not enough for this. Currently, russia is actively removing weapons and military equipment from storage at warehouses, at arsenals, at mobilization deployment centers in order to man and equip the formations and units created as a result of mobilization.
Atthe same time, Vadym Skibitskyi stated, that Military intelligence of Ukraine observed active movement of units of the territorial troops, which were mobilized in the territory of the russian federation at all military districts. Currently, such movement is recorded primarily to rostov and belhorod regions as well as through the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea to Kherson region. Russia is carrying out these measures in order to strengthen its presence in the temporarily occupied territories and replenish losses of troops, which have been conducting hostilities since February.
