    After Belarus & most of Ukraine becomes part of the RF, this canal will be even more useful.

    Even if they don't get those parts, Novorossia will benefit by using that waterway, as it's shorter than via the Volga-Don Canal.
    Truncated Ukraine will still be happy to charge the transit fees..

    So Russia subsidises the Ukraine again... nah...

    Russia is better off using Russian resources and Russian ports and Russian airfields etc etc, and it needs to stop subsidising its hostile neighbours... especially when they are being belligerently hostile... they shouldn't reward that sort of shit.

    It would still cost le$$ than absorbing all of it at once- their economy isn't big enough to do it like W. Germany did with GDR.
    Better wait for the situation to stabilize & for the nationalists losing clout, driven abroad, or killed off 1st.
    It's also Belarus' problem- recently the border between them was closed to prevent weapons smuggling & other contraband.

    Minsk is coordinating further presence of Russian military facilities in Belarus


    The current agreements providing for the operation of two Russian centers expire on June 7, 2021, according to official information

    MINSK, June 5. /TASS/. The terms of further presence of Russia’s two military facilities in Belarus are in the process of internal coordination. Russia will be notified of the decision in due time, the Belarusian Defense Ministry told TASS on Friday.

    "The terms of further presence of Russia’s military facilities in Belarus are in the process of internal coordination. A final decision is to be taken by the Belarusian government. The Russian side will be notified of the decision in a working mode," the Defense Ministry said.

    The inter-governmental agreements on the rules of using the 43rd communication center of Russia’s Navy in Vileika, the Minsk Region, and the missile attack warning center Baranovichi, the Brest Region, concluded on January 6, 1995, took effect on June 7, 1996. The agreements were concluded for a period of 25 years. Their term of operation expires on June 7, 2021. Either side is free to discontinue them by presenting a written notification no less than twelve months in advance (by June 6, 2020).

    The Baranovichi center in Gantsevichi, the Brest Region, equipped by the Volga radar, began to be built in 1984. After a while the project was mothballed for several years. In 1997 the construction work resumed. The center went operational in 2003.

    The Russian Navy’s 43rd communication center in Vileika (radio station Antei) has operated in the Minsk Region since January 1964. It is responsible for maintaining radio communication between the Russian Navy’s Main Staff and nuclear submarines on combat duty in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans. Also, the station carries out reconnaissance and radio-electronic warfare.

    Sounds like the sort of thing they need to replace with a much more modern and capable system located deep in Russian territory....

    They probably have such facilities in Russia already, but keeping them in Belarus gives them an extra pressure point there & an excuse to protect it. Now it's even more useful than ever before.

    Some 350 Belarusian servicemen to take part in Kavkaz 2020 military drills in Russia


    The Belarusian forces have already arrived at the Kapustin Yar proving ground in Russia’s Astrakhan Region, according to the latest data

    MOSCOW, September 15. /TASS/. Belarus has dispatched about 350 servicemen and over 30 tanks to take part in the Kavkaz 2020 (Caucasus 2020) military drills that will take place in Russia between September 21 and 26, Russian Defense Ministry told journalists Tuesday.

    "About 350 people, over 30 tanks and armored personnel carriers, as well as six 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled howitzers will be involved in the drills from the Belarusian side," the ministry said.

    The Belarusian forces have already arrived at the Kapustin Yar proving ground in Russia’s Astrakhan Region.

    During the drills, the Belarusian servicemen will practice ground and air defense, deflection of air raids, as well as offensive tactics.

    Currently, the Slavic Brotherhood joint Russian-Belarusian drills take place at the Brestsky proving ground in Belarus, involving Russian airborne troops. The drills focus on counter-terrorism activities.
