The head of Belarus expressed serious concern about the increase in the military presence of the United States and NATO near the western borders of the country.

"The case, I quote, is in the historical affiliation of the Belarusian lands to Poland. This is already being declared openly. Can I, as president and Belarusians, agree with this?
