The Russian Federation would like to make it apparent that Russian forces have expanded into the neighboring state of Belarus. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has expressed openly that our forces are welcome in his country. This movement of military assets is done to help create better relationships and possibly reunify our two states into the former glory that we once shared.
Military forces will remain present in Belarus, and a larger support forces will also remain near the border. This is to ensure mutual security for both the Belarusian people and the people of the Russian Federation. Any attempts to directly attack Russian troops in Belarus or Russian territory will be seen as aggression, and will be taken very seriously.
The Russian Federation looks forward to a closer relationship with the state of Belarus, and we hope that all other ex-soviet states will be open to greater relationships or even reunification.
