In Belarus, they called the idea of ​​deploying a Russian air force base meaningless

The topic of deploying a Russian military base in Belarus, which has been repeatedly discussed in the media of both one and the other country, has again become the focus of the press.




During an interview with the Russian edition RBC, the head of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, Vladimir Makei, questioned the need to deploy such a base.

According to him, the appearance of a Russian air base on the territory of the republic “has no practical, political, or military meaning.”

Belarusian diplomat believes that the development of modern of technologies robs this issue of relevance. At the same time, Mackay argues that the deployment of a base on the territory of Belarus will not help strengthen stability and security in the region.

To the clarifying issue of the publication, whether the republic’s European neighbors influenced the adoption of such a decision in Minsk, the Belarusian Foreign Minister assured that the republic would never make a decision under pressure from external forces.

In the light of a number of recent statements by the president of the republic, Alexander Lukashenko, the impression is created that the issue of deploying a Russian air base on the territory of Belarus has become the subject of yet another auction, at which the Belarusian leader has put forward some proposals that are too unprofitable for Moscow.

    In Belarus, they called the idea of ​​deploying a Russian air force base meaningless.

    This will be a guarantee of security, both for Belarus itself and for us, if we take it deeper, and for that entire region as a whole.

    The Poles, Romanians and other Baltic states see the point in locating foreign military bases, but Lukashenko and Makey do not. And go to ask not far! Totally inadequate guys. Poor people!

    I also think that spending money on a military base in Belarus is not worth it. Belarusians know how to fight, they only need help with modern weapons. But Vietnam, Serbia, Venezuela, Cuba - there, I think, it is imperative to set up bases. Moreover, Venezuela itself offered, as far as I know.

      Do you propose to return to the old Soviet practice? Then it was enough to pronounce the ritual phrase “we are building socialism”, and financial and military-technical assistance became guaranteed. Why is Serbia worse than Belarus? The fact that Lukashenko said that we are building a union state? And for this weapon for free?
      By the way, the bases are not so smooth. Venezuela yes, they are under threat of invasion and will be only happy, and the location is suitable. It is the same with Cuba, all the more so, the place is “prayed”. Further more difficult. In Serbia to supply the base from space? How is Transnistria? Vietnam gave a decent roll towards the United States. Are you sure that they agree to the base?

    - Personally, I have already spoken out in detail about "this base" ...
    - If the said "does not reach" someone ... - then this is not my fault ...

    Since Belarus is so independent, it makes no sense for the Russian Federation to finance 2 thirds of its budget, it’s time to stop spending Russian money on it!

    It’s a rather ridiculous idea to deploy a Russian military base in Belarus. I look at the geographical map and see that the Kaliningrad region is much more profitable from all sides.

      And I think: why does NATO deploy bases in the Baltic states, Poland and other Europe ?! But, it turns out, they are for the "ridiculous idea"! Do you really consider Lukashenko and Makey intellectuals?
