Expert: Belarus will not tolerate NATO soldiers on its land

In his talk with Alfa Radio, philosopher, publicist and political expert Aleksei Dzermant explained whether the West's attempts to undermine Belarus will stop and how the republic will react to them

Belarus' National Security Concept and Military Doctrine – the most important documents in the field of ensuring the country's military security –  have recently been updated, and Mr. Dzermant noted that the changes are dictated by the events developing around the Belarusian borders and the situation in the world.

“For example, I know that a separate article is devoted to biological safety. In short, it envisages that Belarus co-operates with Russia on this issue, indicating what the country is concerned about, what risks and threats are possible in this regard. Firstly, this is the number of biological laboratories around our borders, and secondly – the nature of the diseases, most of which may have artificially created grounds. I would especially like to note that the biological sphere can be more dangerous than the nuclear one,” the expert noted.

Mr. Dzermant said that the new Military Doctrine will provide for the possibility of a pre-emptive strike against the West, “If we see that not just a strike force has been formed near our borders, but there is reliable information that an attack is being prepared, then we will not expect these troops or saboteurs to cross our border. Differently speaking, 1941 will never happen again. We reserve the right to strike such a blow with all possible means at our disposal. This is important because it is a serious signal that we will not be victims and underdogs when NATO soldiers come to our Belarusian land. This is an important point that everyone in the West should know and understand.”

The expert added that attempts to undermine Belarus will not stop, “In this regard, we must specify in our key documents how Belarus will react to attempts by the West to attack our country. The documents should state that our security is comprehensive and concerns the political structure and public peace. In addition, we have provided that we can help our allies in this, as well as accept help from them – so that [the West] has no illusions that we will stay here alone and fight the attempts of ‘colour’ revolutions and the overthrow of state power ourselves. All aspects of a possible coup will be included in the Military Doctrine. Therefore, the discussion of these important documents is becoming of a nationwide character.”
