It’s unlikely that Belarus will attack Ukraine, because Belarusian troops are unwilling to join in Russia’s full-scale wholeheartedly, Belarusian national leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya said in an interview with NV’s sister publication, Ukrainska Pravda, published on Nov. 3.

Dictator Alexander Lukashenko is aware of the position of the Belarusian military, she added.

"Back then (in February) it was already clear that Belarusian forces didn't want to fight against Ukrainians,” Tsikhanouskaya explained.

"Besides, they also realized they had had no combat experience, so they would be used as cannon fodder.”

At the same time, Tsikhanouskaya believes even Lukashenko does give the order for Belarusian troops to invade Ukraine, Belarusians still wouldn't fight, and would instead surrender or run away immediately.

Nevertheless, the Lukashenko regime is still de facto fighting against Ukraine, the duly-elected leader of Belarus noted.

However, Lukashenko has attempted to justify his regime’s participation in the full-scale war against Ukraine, saying that his participation is allegedly limited “to preventing the spread of this conflict into Belarus’ territory.”

"Don't think I'm planning an invasion here,” Lukashenko said earlier.

“We launch attacks on Ukraine and will do it, but I don't want my children and your children to fight against each other. For what reason?"
