    Here is the “hope and support”, our western shield of the Fatherland, the bastion holding back the NATO hordes, the only and unique ally. Now, at least there will be no illusions on this score. In the morning, money is an ally in the evening, in the evening money is an ally in the morning, you can just an ally, but money ahead!

      Calmly. Lots of text. The Republic of Belarus, like the Russian Federation, are members of the Partnership for Peace program; the CSTO Charter has not been violated in any way ...
      You can understand the British, familiarizing the British paratroopers with the tactics of the actions of paratroopers of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus (who conducted joint exercises with the Russian paratroopers from the 76th Airborne Forces recently) will not hurt, especially since it is similar to the tactics of the actions of the Russian paratroopers ....
      By the way, each British company included in the regiments of the Special Forces SAS has parachute and diving platoons, so for the sake of reconnaissance of the future theater, the British SAS will take off its sand-colored berets and dress at least a budenovka, just to get into the den of "useful d. ..a".....
      I won’t be surprised if the next place of the mission of the Belarusian peacekeepers will be a country where there are no forests, however, this is not the fault of the British ...

        The program began after the collapse of the USSR, the participants of the entire former "Warsaw Pact", why then they signed it, I think, no need to explain. Question - why is activity being activated right now, for what purpose? And the charter, it’s not a formal concrete violation, but about a strategic course.

        You can understand the British, familiarizing the British paratroopers with the tactics of the actions of paratroopers of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus (who conducted joint exercises with the Russian paratroopers from the 76th Airborne Forces recently) will not hurt, especially since it is similar to the tactics of the actions of the Russian paratroopers ....

        The British can be understood and it is not about them. Belarusians also understand and forgive?

        By the way, each British company included in the regiments of the SAS Special Forces has both parachute and diving platoons, so for the sake of reconnaissance of the future theater, the British SAS will take off its sand-colored berets and dress at least a budenovka, just to get into the den of "useful d. ..a".....

        It doesn’t matter who they send, even though the Nepalese Gurkhas are already details, they don’t change the essence of the matter.

        I won’t be surprised if the next place of the mission of the Belarusian peacekeepers will be a country where there are no forests, however, this is not the fault of the British ...

        Here I am about the same. Before Belarus, all kinds of foreign missions were categorically not interested. Let's wait to be sent to Iraq? Or Afghanistan?
        Those wishing to break the throat for the "chairman", tell about our reliable ally, I advise you to remember:

        Minsk is bound by allied obligations with the CSTO countries, but Belarus will not fight for their interests on the territory of foreign states, President Alexander Lukashenko said.
        "If someone tries to fight us, we will defend ourselves and fulfill allied obligations with Russia, but only on this piece of land." (30.03.2016/XNUMX/XNUMX)

    - And what does it .. .. ???
    - Или в качестве "пирожков на дорогу" наши "братья-белорусы" хотят и этот "9М318 к ЗРК «Бук-МБ»" британским морпехам предложить...
    - И морпехам есть что предложить белорусам... - на Фолклендах они когда-то отметились...
    - А белорусы их ещё и русскому языку подучат (не на "беларускай мове" же будет общение)... - и многие британцы (спецподразделения) изучают русский язык... - ведь Россия для них ...- враг № 1...
    -Such, brother, affairs ...
