Russian forces arrive in Belarus for joint military drills – EURACTIV.com

Russian military forces and hardware began arriving in ex-Soviet Belarus for joint drills starting in February, Minsk said on Monday (17 January), amid soaring tensions between East and West over Ukraine.



The “Allied Resolve” exercises will be held near Belarus’s western rim, the borders of NATO members Poland and Lithuania, and its southern flank with Ukraine, Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko said.

“Set an exact date and let us know, so we aren’t blamed for massing some troops here out of the blue, as if we are preparing to go to war,” he told top military officials.
