According to Ivan Tertel, the director of the Government Security Council of Belarus (KGB), an important turning point in the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine will take place in the coming months. In February, Russia began its military intervention in the nation that borders its territory.
“The fighting will access a key phase if Russian Federation suitably conducts mobilization and guarantees that its military power [involved in the conflict with Ukraine] seems to have the equipment or advanced weapons,” Tertel said at a press conference on Tuesday, as cited by the media organization BelTA. Tertel’s comments were made in reference to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
He continued by saying, “According to our evaluation, the turning point will occur between the months of November and February.”
Following an announcement by the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, that his nation had begun the process of building a combined military force with Russia, this remark has been made as justification for the action, he blamed the rising tensions on NATO.
On Monday, Russia increased the number of attacks it was conducting against key cities in Ukraine and targeted locations inside Kiev for the very first time in many months. Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, said that the assaults on military command centers and the power grid were carried out in revenge for “terrorist actions” that occurred on Russian territory.
Moscow has repeatedly accused Kiev of masterminding a truck bomb attack that took place on Saturday and caused damage to the only bridge that connects Crimea to the Russian mainland.
The month before last, Vladimir Putin made an announcement about a partial mobilization with the intention of activating 300,000 reservists. A week ago, Putin gave Army Commander Sergey Surovikin the responsibility of commanding the Russian soldiers that are now engaged in the battle.
While this was going on, Vice President Joe Biden of the United States approved an extra $625 million of military assistance for Ukraine. The European Union (EU) made a commitment to maintaining its assistance for Kiev, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that the group will continue to help Ukraine for as far as it was required.
On February 24, Russia deployed military personnel inside Ukraine, claiming Kiev’s failure to fulfill the Minsk accords as the reason. These agreements were meant to grant the areas of Donetsk & Lugansk a unique status inside the Ukrainian state.
2014 was the year that saw the first signing of the protocols, which were mediated by Germany and France. Since then, the former president of Ukraine, Pyotr Poroshenko, has confessed that the primary objective of Kiev’s use of the truce was to “build significant military forces” while simultaneously buying time.
The Kremlin acknowledged the Donbass republics’ status as independent nations in February 2022 and issued a demand to Ukraine, stating that it must make an official declaration that it is a neutral country and would not enter any western military alliance. The Ukrainian capital of Kiev maintains that Russia’s invasion was totally unprovoked.
