Belarusian President A G Lukashenko reiterated his country’s adherence to a military-political union with Russia, telling reporters in Minsk:

Together with Russia, we’re building a Union state, and we’re both part of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation. This is a military-political alliance where Belarus, being on its western flank, is in direct contact with NATO, hence our military-political strategy. Belarus is a peaceful country, but we still keep our powder dry. We signed a wealth of accords [with Russia] on ensuring political, economic, and military stability… together with Russia we set up a powerful military force on our western flank, built around a 70,000-strong Belarusian contingent. If, God forbid, we have a conflict flaring in the west, the Belarusian army will be able to hold out for several days before the Russian armed forces kick in, but there’s no need for additional Russian military bases in Belarus. If the West wants to fight Russia, Belarus would take Moscow’s side in such a conflict. We have a treaty with Russia and we will fight here in Belarus, not in the Ukraine or Syria… we’re bound to defend Russia and Russia will take just a few days to come to our help with planes and missiles.

Belarusian President A G Lukashenko called on the Ukraine to stop sending people to cross the Belarusian border, especially since so many of them were armed. He told journalists after Sunday’s election:

Quit sending armed Ukrainians here. We’re fed up with stopping them at the border… with shells, bats, guns, and ammunition. I’ve had enough of reading those reports and looking through pictures. Stop it. Can’t we live in peace?

On 10 October, citing the press secretary of the State Border Committee, Aleksandr Tischenko, BelaPan reported that the Belarusian government announced that border guards detained about 200 Ukrainians in only a week. Many of them couldn’t justify the purpose of their visit to Belarus and carried camouflage uniforms, bats, bludgeons, and other weapons. Tischenko noted that some of those detained were on an international wanted list for participating in illegal terrorist groups.
