Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has approved the decision on guarding the state border for 2022, BelTA informs. According to the State Border Committee, in 2022, the border guards will focus on the border sections where new external challenges and threats to border security are possible, especially on the border with Ukraine.
“The border services have clear-cut tasks. One of the main tasks is to increase the efficiency of state border protection by improving the engineering and technical infrastructure. The situation in the border area will be constantly monitored to detect signs of provocations and promptly take measures to stop them,” the State Border Committee said.
The plans also include the completion of demarcation of the junction of the borders of Belarus, Poland and Ukraine in Brest Oblast. “Border services, including in cooperation with the Defense Ministry, will continue the planned build-up of resources, including mobilization ones,” the committee added.
