Lukashenko approved plan of Belarus-Russia joint military exercise

Following the report of the Defence Ministry’s leadership, the President has today approved the plan of a joint military exercise of the Armed Forces of Belarus and Russia along Belarus’ western and southern borders scheduled for February


Aleksandr Lukashenko recalled that an agreement to conduct these exercises was reached with the President of Russia last December.

“We agreed to jointly hold unscheduled exercises on the western border of the Union State and on the southern border of Belarus which is also a border of the Union State. We see today that we need to conduct full-scale exercises in the western and southern regions – the so-called Belarusian balcony,” the President stressed.
