"Belarusian land forces have been observed deploying from garrison to the field, for exercises. This is in line with seasonal norms as Belarus enters the culmination of its Winter Training cycle in the month of May," the UK Ministry of Defense (MoD) wrote on Twitter, APA reports.

"Russia will likely seek to inflate the threat posed to Ukraine by these exercises in order to fix Ukrainian forces in the North, preventing them from being committed to the battle for the Donbas.

Deviation from normal exercise activity that could pose a threat to allies and partners is not currently anticipated," added Ministry.
