Abstract
The article concerns the military actions of the Russian Empire government in the area of modern Belarus, which were taken to counter the armed groups of insurgents fighting for the revival of the Polish national statehood — the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, within the borders of 1772. The number and composition of Russian troops concentrated on the Belarusian lands during the uprising are established. Their organizational structure and the nature of territorial distribution on the Belarusian lands are determined. The connection of the policy of increasing the Russian military presence in Belarus with the threat of interference of European States in the solution of the "Polish question" is revealed. The relevance of this study is based on the lack of objective data concerning this problem in both Belarusian and Russian historical science, as well as the presence of conflicting data on the composition and number of the contingent of Russian troops concentrated on the Belarusian lands in this period.
