Speaking to Polsat News on Tuesday, Skrzypczak, a former Polish Land Forces Commander, said Poland must be ready to support the likely uprising against Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

Russia stands by its commitment to defend Belarus as an ally and will take action to comply, the spokesman added, calling Belarus Russia’s “partner, ally and a brotherly country,” as quoted by TASS state news agency.

Relations between Warsaw and Moscow recently turned icy after a series of spats between the two nations, starting with Poland’s decision to seize the building of a former school in Warsaw that Moscow said belonged to the Russian embassy.

Later, on 9 May, Russian Ambassador Sergey Andreev was unable to lay a wreath at the Soviet Military Cemetery in Warsaw to commemorate Victory Day, to which the Russian Foreign Ministry responded with a complaint for unfriendly behaviour by Poland.
