Russia sends nuclear bombers Will the crisis between Minsk and Brussels ignite a military confrontation?

Coinciding with the continued influx of migrants at the Belarusian-European border, the eastern region of the continent lies on a hot plate, threatening to turn the tension between Brussels and Minsk into a broader military clash, in which Russia and its allies face the West and its allies on the other side of the conflict.

In a surprising move similar to Nixon's threat to the Soviet Union with nuclear B-52s during the Vietnam War, Russia sent two of its squadron's nuclear bombers to patrol over Belarusian airspace. This move comes at a time when the crisis between Minsk and Brussels has reached its highest level of tension, and tension is still rising in Moscow's relations with NATO.

On the other hand, the European Union foreign policy official, Joseph Borwell, warned of the "dangers" facing Europe as a result of the Russian and Belarusian moves. A document revealed his tendency towards proposing the formation of a joint European force whose movement is not subject to the unanimity of the member states.

Together, these moves portend a further complication of the situation, threatening its slide towards an open military confrontation. Meanwhile, accusations of the Belarusian opposition are increasing that Lukashenko's regime "seeks to turn the region into a war front, and recruits immigrants to carry out hostile operations against Europe."

In a move to show its military support for Belarus, and through which it sends a message to the European Union countries meeting to consider new sanctions on Minsk, Moscow decided on Wednesday to send two strategic bombers with nuclear capabilities to patrol the Belarusian airspace.

This decision comes less than a month after Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Belarusian counterpart Viktor Khrinin signed protocols to extend the terms of agreements for the deployment of two Russian military facilities on the territory of Belarus.

In this regard, Shoigu stated that these protocols concern “the extension of the terms of the agreements for the deployment of two Russian military installations on the territory of the Republic of Belarus, the missile attack warning center in the city of Baranovichi and the wireless transmission station of the Navy in the city of Velika,” adding that this extension “confirmed once again.” Another is the unity of the orientations of the defense ministries of Russia and Belarus for defense cooperation, and their focus on solving practical tasks to ensure the military security of the Russian-Belarus Federation.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov commented on the crisis that he hopes European officials "do not allow themselves to fall into a dangerous slide toward violence."

"He is arming immigrants against Europe!"
Meanwhile, the Belarusian opposition continues to accuse the Lukashenko regime of dragging the region into war, employing immigrants to launch an attack on the European Union. Indeed, these accusations went to the fact that Minsk trained Iraqi and Afghan military experts to smuggle them to Europe in order to carry out a terrorist operation on its soil.

And quoting the "Euobserver" website , the Belarusian opposition and former Minister of Culture Pavel Latushka said that "Alexander Lukashenko is using the current migrant crisis to penetrate European territory with personnel with military experience trained by Belarus in terrorist operations," adding that he "seeks to declare war in the region, trying to market the cause." As if it is a humanitarian crisis, Europe is to blame."

The former Belarusian government official accused his country's government of training people of Afghan and Iraqi nationalities to implement this scheme, and said that information leaked to him from Lukashenko's intelligence sources, "disclosing their names may endanger their lives." According to that information, "the Belarusian special forces (Margina Hurka) are reinforced by Russian military advisers, who are conducting such training in the bases of Tajikistan." Latushka stressed that they are "preparing armed forces on the European borders."

Europe is preparing itself for war
It seems that the European side, too, is adopting the hypothesis of an armed attack. This was stated by Polish government spokesman Piotr Muller, during a press statement on Monday, that "the Polish government expects armed confrontations to occur at any time on the Polish border." European Union Council President Charles Mitchell also considered what is happening there "a hybrid attack by the Belarusian government on the Union."

Permanent Representative of Poland to the European Union met Ondrgi Saduc, with his counterparts from 26 countries to brief them on the developments of the situation, at a meeting behind closed doors, conveys the " Euobserver " on the tongue of the tongue of a European official attended, that "exchange of fire has not happened yet, but between The soldiers provoked many provocations, as Belarusian elements gathered their weapons near the Polish forces and aimed them at them."

Faced with this reality, according to a document of European Foreign Minister Joseph Borwell, the EU is considering the proposal to form a military force of 5,000 soldiers, on the condition that its movement is not dependent on the unanimity of the member states. "Europe is in danger, and we need rapid deployment capabilities," Borwell warned in a press statement Wednesday, adding that the European Union's foreign and defense ministers will discuss the issue on Monday with the aim of agreeing on a final political document in March next year.

On the other hand, the tension on the European borders comes at a time when the dispute between Russia and NATO is escalating, against the background of the latter accusing Moscow of spying on him from its mission there and expelling the eight members of the mission, to which the Kremlin Foreign Ministry responded by severing its relations with the alliance and closing its office there. As well as increasing the strategic race between the two parties on the border between them.
