Security chief warns about plans to bring military contingents from Poland into Belarus

"Preconditions are being created now for a major global conflict," Ivan Tertel warned

MINSK, November 1. /TASS/. Belarus is aware of the plans for the possible introduction of military contingents into the country from the territory of Poland, the chairman of the country’s State Security Committee, Ivan Tertel, said as he met with workers in Mogilev on Tuesday.

"There are concrete plans to bring military contingents onto our territory, including from the territory of Poland. We know about the 101st Airborne Division of the United States, which is already based partially on the territory of our neighbor," BelTA news agency quoted Tertel as saying.

"Preconditions are being created now for a major global conflict," the security chief warned. "The first sign is the formation of coalitions on a global scale, which we are currently witnessing. On the one hand, it is the collective West, which has long been in a coalition and is trying to expand it. On the other hand, the countries that disagree with this policy of world domination are creating their own coalition. Primarily, these are China, Russia, Iran and some other countries," Tertel went on to say.

On the positive side, however, he said that "the US has mathematically calculated the consequences of a nuclear exchange, concluding that it would be a catastrophe for the whole of mankind". "Still, this is a situation that should better be avoided at this point," he noted.
