Majority of officers in Belarus for unification with Russia

Recently, oppositional politician Mikalaj Statkewitsch referred to a (closed) survey of   army officers in Belarus,  70% to 80% wishing for a real unification of Russia and BelarusStatkewitsch went as far as calling Belarus a “fake state”, and warned: “It is enough to recruit a dozen senior officers among those who yearn for the ‘real association’ during the ‘fraternal’ joint exercise and to send a Special Forces battalion to support them through the open border. And that would be the end of the whole ‘strong state’.”

This leads to the question who will be the real target of the divisions from the 1st Guards Tank Army which Russia (apparently) is about to dislocate into Belarus.
