On 16 February, Lukashenko said that the Belarusian army would join the Russian army in the war against Ukraine only in the event of a direct attack on Belarus. 

In the summer of 2022, the Belarusian dictator suggested that Belarusian troops might have to fight for western Ukraine so that it "would not be taken away by the West".
