Kremlin Calls Claims of Russian Military Buildup on Belarus Border ‘Absurd’



The Russian president’s spokesman criticized on Thursday media reports that suggested Russia was pulling troops to its western border with Belarus.

“The very wording of the question suggesting a buildup on the Belarusian border seems absurd to me. I don’t know anything about this. But it would be an exaggeration to speak about a buildup at the Belarusian border,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters at a briefing in Moscow.

He advised that journalists inquire with the Russian Defense Ministry about the movement of troops and its purpose.
