    Plans for Russian airbase in Belarus will be discussed on October 15-16 — Kremlin

    Vladimir Putin's spokesman said the "constructive discussion will go on"

    MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko will go ahead with the constructive discussion of the possibility for creating a Russian airbase in the Belarusian territory, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

    "The presidents discussed various aspects of that topic. The constructive discussion will go on," Peskov said, adding that Putin and Lukashenko would soon meet in Kazakhstan, at the summits of the CIS and the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on October 15-16.

    "They will have an excellent opportunity to discuss these issues on the sidelines," Peskov said.

    He recalled Putin has already sent a message of greeting to Lukashenko to congratulate him upon his convincing victory in the presidential election.

    Earlier, Lukashenko said that he would discuss the issue of Russian military bases in Belarus.

    "We will consider that problem. If Russia sees certain things we do not see, it will tell us," Lukashenko told the media, adding that "if the air force issue is unequivocal, then give us these 24 planes."

    At the same time he doubts that Russia will really push ahead with its plans for a military base in Belarus.

    Putin last month instructed the Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry to enter negotiations with Belarus and to sign an agreement on creating a Russian airbase in the country’s territory. As the Russian government said earlier, the agreement would contribute to establishing a joint defense of the Union State’s border in the air space and to create an integral regional air defense system of Russia and Belarus.

    apparently Luka will talk with Putin about this. I guess after the elections are now over.

    This is to prevent issues with other countries I suppose. So Belarus will likely say no to airbase but allow Russian assets in Belarus, maybe more. As Russia already have Su-27's in Belarus. Probably more assets. They will demand new military equipment as wel.

    Russia and Belarus to test unified regional air defense system during joint drills

    The Zapad-2017 (West-2017) joint military drills will be aimed at improving the efficiency of the unified regional air defense system

    MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. The joint Russian-Belarusian exercise Zapad-2017 (West-2017) to be held in two years’ time will be aimed, in particular, at improving the efficiency of the unified regional air defense system, Commander of Russia’s Western Military District Anatoly Sidorov said on Wednesday.

    "In addition to improving the training of command centers’ personnel and troops, the exercise will be aimed at achieving practical goals - improving the system of management of the regional group of forces, improving the unified systems of surveillance, communications, electronic warfare, raising operational effectiveness and interaction within the existing unified regional air defense system of the countries," he told the joint board of the Russian and Belarusian Defense Ministries.

    He noted that during the Union Shield-2015 exercise military units demonstrated a good level of training and cohesion. "The exercise sparked the interest of our "neighbors" to study the focus of troops’ training and the substance of training assignments," he added.

    Evaluating the results of the exercise, the commander of the Western Military District noted that the bodies of military control and troops had successfully coped with the tasks.

    with Belarus developing various items such as the Caiman armoured recce, Shershan ATGW, Polonez MLRS, 2T stalker, T38 Stilet, and now developing a long-range cruise missile, do you think Belarus should go for only joint ventures with Russia or continue to develope its own equipment. I think that Belarus would be better doing joint development as its more likely to be cheaper for both countries and that they can both produce something really good. I kinda feel Belarus does produce some good stuff and some not so brilliant but the armed forces just don't have the money to purchase it/or enough of them.

    Hign intensity of combat readiness in Belarus

    Post  johnmalkin on Wed Jun 15, 2016 8:52 am

    As we know NATO Polish Armed Forces conducted a large-scale military training exercise Anakonda involving 24 NATO and partner countries. For more than 10 days, 31,000 troops, backed by large numbers of vehicles, aircraft and ships trained together. The aim was to exercise and test the interoperability of the Polish Armed Forces with other participating nations. Another large-scale NATO exercise Saber Strike 2016 have begun in the Baltic States, which are aimed at improving interaction between member states in a wide range on military operations. 10,000 soldiers from 13 member states and partner countries are participating in the exercise. The exercises take place from May 27 th to June 22th.
    At the same time, their neighboring countries do not sleep either. The last six months are characterized by very intensive operational and combat training in Belarus.
    While NATO flexes its military muscle in Poland and in the Baltic States Belarus conducted command and staff war game with the 6th and 11th Guards mechanized brigades led by the Commander of the Western Operational Command from June 7 th to 9 th at the Gozhsky test site. The aim of this exercise was to enhance the level of practical skills in command and control of military units during combat operations with the use of innovative technologies.
    The more so the units of Belarus Air Force and Air Defence Forces will participate in the exercise led by Russian Western Military District from June 14 th to 16 th.
    In the course of the exercise a missile and aviation strike of imaginary enemy will be repelled. Air Force and Air Defence troops of Russia and Belarus will practice elimination of different types of targets imitating cruise and ballistic missiles, combat and reconnaissance UAVs as well as aviation units of imaginary enemy during day and night time.
    So the high intensity of combat training of troops today seems to become the distinctive feature of military activity of our days.

    it just says military cooperation plan, with no specific details. It could be nothing, for example some kind of communication concerning events in Ukrainian conflict where Belarus acts as a mediator
