Russian soldiers have been gathering in Belarus for the past month, reopening the debate about what exact role Minsk is playing in the Ukraine conflict. Belarussian troops have not been actively involved in the fighting, but the country still serves as a launching pad for Russian attacks, and thousands more of Moscow’s troops are set to be deployed along the border with Ukraine. So does Belarus’s President Alexander Lukashenko simply take his orders from the Kremlin, or is he playing a much more complex geopolitical game?
