    The Belarusian Defense Ministry considers Lithuania's report on the threat to the Baltic states from the Belarusian-Russian military exercises "Zapad-2017" guesswork and refuses to comment on it, ministry spokesman Vladimir Makarov told Sputnik on Monday.

    MINSK (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the Lithuanian Defense Ministry and its State Security Department said in a report that Russia could be able to attack Lithuania with a 24-48-hour notice while Moscow and Minsk's joint drills in 2017 posed a serious security threat.

    "The ministry does not comment on speculations," Makarov said of the Lithuanian report.
