In another possible escalation of the Russo-Ukraine war, Belarus has announced it will deploy special operations troops in three areas near its southern border with Ukraine and Poland.

According to a statement by Belarus’ armed forces on Tuesday night, May 10, President Alexander Lukashenko talked up the role of Russian-made missiles in boosting the country’s defences and threatened transatlantic military alliance, NATO

 elarus, a close ally of Russia, said in March that its armed forces were not taking part in what Moscow calls its “special operation” in Ukraine.

But Belarus helped Russia to use its land and airspace to send thousands of troops across the Ukranian border on Feb. 24.

Belarus has complained for months about NATO countries amassing soldiers near its borders and says it will now increase the amount and intensity of its own military exercises in response.

 

 

Recall that Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, all members of NATO, share borders with Belarus, and since Russia’s invasion, all these countries have increased troop presence on their borders.

 
“The United States and its allies continue to build up their military presence on the state borders of the Republic of Belarus,” Belarus Chief of General Staff Viktor Gulevich said

“The established grouping has more than doubled in the past six months in quantity and quality.”

Belarus is also deploying air defence, artillery and missile units for drills in the west, Gulevich said.

Lukashenko said Moscow had agreed to help Minsk produce missiles similar to the Iskander, which Russia has used in Ukraine, and that he wanted Belarus to continue using Russian-made S-400 and S-300 surface-to-air missile systems.

“We are realists, we understand that we will not be able to defeat NATO. But we can cause damage, especially to those territories from which we will be attacked,” he said.

 We shall not fail Nigerians - Acting CJN Olukayode Ariwoola speaks

Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), has promised not to fail Nigerians after taking over from Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, the former CJN who resigned on Sunday evening on health grounds. 

 

Addressing State House Correspondents after taking the oath of office, Ariwoola said with the support of his colleagues, the judiciary under him shall not fail Nigerians.

 

He said; 

 

“What Nigerians expect from me is to comply, preserve and abide and protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. And so be it. That is what I will do especially with the cooperation of my brother Justices of the Supreme Court. We shall not fail Nigerians.” 

 

On the current controversy at the supreme court, Ariwoola said; 

 

“There is no controversy in the Supreme Court. We are one with the Chief Justice. That’s why you heard the President said His Lordship, is disengaging on the grounds of ill-health. No controversy we’re one.”

 

On the welfare issues highlighted in the letter addressed to the former CJN, he said; 

 

“It was an internal memo of the court. It was not a petition. It was not a letter. It was addressed by the brother Justices of the Chief Justice and presented to him, His Lordship directly. There were issues to be resolved amongst justices.”

 

When asked if those issues would be resolved under his leadership, he said: “Yeah, we’ve started resolving it.”
