About 32,000 NATO soldiers, over 1,000 armoured vehicles, and 235 aeroplanes and helicopters are deployed near Russia's and Belarus's borders, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday.

"The situation is no calmer on the European continent, including near our borders. In the immediate vicinity of Belarus and Russia, as part of the alliance's operations in Europe, about 32,000 soldiers from the contingents of the United States and NATO's armed forces are stationed.

There are more than 1,000 armoured vehicles, about 160 artillery systems and mortars, and 235 aeroplanes and helicopters," Lukashenko was quoted as saying by the Pul Pervogo Telegram channel.

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova, Georgia, and Serbia will be drawn into NATO, just like in the scenario of the situation in Ukraine, Lukashenko added.
