Belarus will become an air defense outpost of the Union State


Belarus has made another real step towards military integration with Russia within the framework of the Union State. Minsk will receive from Moscow the most modern air defense systems S-400 and ZRPK Pantsir-S, radar stations Protivnik-G and Vostok, as well as Su-30SM fighters and Mi-35 attack helicopters.


First of all, it should be mentioned that on the basis of the CIS countries, there is already a unified air defense system created in 1995. Its tasks include the protection of common borders, joint airspace control and missile attack warning. Members of this agreement, in addition to Russia and Belarus, are Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and even Ukraine. True, Turkmenistan has de facto curtailed its participation, while Tashkent and so far Kiev are cooperating with Moscow exclusively on a bilateral basis. In addition to this "loose" association, Russia and Belarus in 2009 signed an Agreement on joint protection of the border of the Union State and the creation of the Unified Regional Air Defense System of the Russian Federation and Belarus. It was finally ratified in 2017. What is it?

It is not hard to guess that Belarus is extremely important for ensuring the security of Russian air borders in the western direction, at the same time being the "rear" for the Kaliningrad region, our exclave in Europe. Belarusian air defenses are strong enough due to the fact that Minsk can receive modern weapons from Moscow on the most favorable terms. So, in the middle of the 16s, President Lukashenka bartered 300 S-300PS "Favorit" and S-2 V air defense systems from the Kremlin. Also, the Belarusian, and at the same time Russian, skies are covered by 400 divisions of the S-10 "Triumph" air defense systems, 125 divisions of the " Buk "and" Osa ", modernized complexes S-2" Pechera-2T / 2TM ", SAM" Tor-M5E "and XNUMX radar stations of the decimeter range" Protivnik-GE ". Run this whole technique Belarusian soldiers trained in Russia at our training grounds.

Cooperation in the field of security between the two countries within the framework of the Union State is very important. The Russian military can be the first to detect planes or missiles flying to Belarus from the Baltic region and give their colleagues a timely warning. They will also be able to help our Kaliningrad if they notice a violation of air borders by neighboring countries of the European Union. Now Minsk will have more possibilities to suppress such actions. The S-300 are quite effective air defense systems, but the additional Triumphs being transferred to it are even better, and in the future they will be replaced by the S-500. The S-400 in Belarus will be covered by the Pantsir-S air defense missile system and the Su-30SM multipurpose fighters.

Separately, I would like to talk about the strengthening of the Belarusian aviation. In Minsk, it is relatively weak: just over seven dozen aircraft, including 21 Su-27 fighters, 22 Su-25 attack aircraft, 34 MiG-29 fighters and 4 Su-30SM, received two years ago. Now the RB Air Force will be replenished with eight more Su-30SM multipurpose fighters and Mi-35 attack helicopters. Also not God knows how much, but there is an important nuance.

Belarus quite justifiably counts on the assistance of the Russian Aerospace Forces if something happens. Several years ago, there were active negotiations on the location of a Russian airbase on the territory of an ally, which was supposed to stop the growing military capabilities in neighboring Poland and the Baltic states. For openly political reasons, this issue was removed from the agenda. But within the framework of the Agreement on the Creation of a Unified Regional Air Defense System of the Russian Federation and Belarus, Russian pilots received the right without additional permits and political approvals to cross the air border of an ally. For this now, an order from the commander of the Regional Group of Forces of Russia and Belarus is enough.

    No supplies of the latest air defense-air defense systems to them, no fighters and other latest military equipment, otherwise, in the event of a "divorce", we will not return anything back, but instead we need to put up our full-fledged military bases in Belarus on the border with Poland and Lithuania, otherwise This Belarusian crest will once again "shod" us, as it has done more than once, and he does not need any integration with Russia, because Russia pulled him out of the Belarusian Maidan de ....., and now he is afloat again.

      No union state! The people of Belarus do not need this TS (Toilet Union)! It is done and decided for millions of people - nasty bureaucrats! We need a full-fledged border! It's like you need to be friends with your neighbor in the country, but only through the fence! Since the Russian Federation is so "powerful and great", what are the problems, missiles that will not reach Poland and the Baltic states? What is the “empire” afraid of with a living standard of “101! Are there enemies? Does everyone want to attack the Russian Federation? These horror stories "walk" for more than a century.

        Everything is correct. You say that you are not used to living under the Poles and under the Litvin, but Father has already begun to look closely at Washington, but then your Belarusian Maidan happened, and he, against his will, had to tearfully ask Russia for help in order to sit in his palace , and to pick you up and put you on the rug in the hallway, there will be those who wish, the same Poland. and the same Lithuania, and you will again be a Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. You, like Ukraine, are divided into East and West, and there is no unity between you, and there will not be, for your "unity" you need thirty years to brainwash you about the invader and occupier of Russia, and about its "atrocities" on your territory , to carry out a complete "decommunization", to create a museum of the Russian occupation and an "institute of national svidomost" of the Belarusian people, then you will be "brothers-in-law" to Ukrainian nationalists, and this is where everything goes .... I remember how we all lived together in the USSR, and did not divide themselves into either Ukrainians, or Belarusians, or Latvians, but here you yourself decided to live in your own principalities, volosts, uluses and emirates, and how, happiness came to you in Armenia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan , Uzbekistan, Moldova, and soon you will have the same thing, and the flag in your hands, live your life, under the Polish-Lithuanian boot.

          Another proof - cheap pAnts of the "great empire", which inspires through the media that without it, neither the CIS country will survive ...
          And at the same time, in their own country, people still live in metal barrels, which were temporary housing for shift workers and in barracks that were built in 1917. You can raise your head when you really have something.
          The CIS countries live and develop! The Russian Federation only knows how to seize foreign lands by force, and who does not want to - they kill! Hundreds of examples! How was Georgia shot from cannons, when one village refused to go into slavery, how was foreign lands taken away, and if these lands were returned to the owners, and this is Japan, China, Mongolia, Germany, Finland, etc., what will the Russian Federation have? Anyone - any country of the CIS, the Russian Federation - is being poured with mud and obsser ..., Moldavia is the Romanians, but the fact that Moldova appeared 530 years earlier than Ruynia is difficult to read? Belarus under the boots of the Pole and the Balts. Ukraine is also under the boots of the Poles, etc. Well, and your country under whose boot?
          - Under the Mongol-Tatar.
          You have to be a patriot of your country when this country does everything for its citizens! Instead of wiping your feet! X - years ago, citizens of the Russian Federation were in Brazil, they were robbed on the street, their documents were stolen, etc. It was on Friday - they came to the Embassy of the Russian Federation, the consul came out and said: Nobody asked you to fly to Brazil, that you are now complaining that have you been robbed?
          - Come on Monday! "Excellent attitude" towards its citizens!
          PS Blind patriotism is stupidity!

            Well, well, about the developing CIS countries in more detail Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Moldova, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan? Do not make me laugh. And about Brazil, as well as about Turkey and Greece, goons mostly go there, who do not see the beauty of rest in their country, but when they are picked up there, either terrorists, or a bus with them fell into the abyss, or they pick up some some dirty trick in the form of leprosy or covid, then immediately into hysterics-Russia help. And some other lands Russia seized by force, but only about Crimea, Crimea left Ukraine only because Ukrainian nationalists were killed on February 20, 2014 near Korsun Shevchenko and crippled the citizens of Crimea, who were traveling from Kiev to their home on eight buses, but they were stopped there, pelted with Molotov cocktails, dragged out of the buses and crumbled their skulls and spines with bats, fittings and chains, and who wanted to escape from these unfortunates, they were finished off from pompovikov and avtomatov.Then about 70 Crimeans died and were crippled, that's just why Crimea left Ukraine, and forever, and I want to ask you about this, are the Crimeans right that they joined Russia after everything that happened?

        If we recall the history of wars, then, unfortunately, these horror stories do not diverge from the case.

    Sooner or later, the last dictator of Europe will be thrown off, and what will Russia get from this? All

    ... the most modern air defense systems S-400 and ZRPK Pantsir-S, radar stations Protivnik-G and Vostok, as well as Su-30SM fighters and Mi-35 attack helicopters. ...

    will be in the hands of NATO. Lukashenka is not an ally, but the head of the junta, for whom the meaning of life is power. So this collective farmer is prancing in front of the girls with a machine gun in his hands under the protection of riot police paid by Russia.

    And what? Weapons were also delivered before the elections. And then: "No association"

    And in the article: "will receive", not buy.
    Those. while everything is still. Earlier, in the Middle Ages, Kings / Sultans / Shahs were always presented with gifts and weapons. To appease, so that nafig does not send.

    Belarus has changed and it will no longer be the same. It is very important how much more time Lukashenka will be able to sit on bayonets, and then it will be up to Belarus to decide what and how.
    And if the Belarusians still learn that Russia is helping Old Man, then the friendship of the states is over.

      It becomes fashionable to sit on bayonets, look at the Capitol, the whole army is packed to capacity laughing

      And if the Belarusians still learn that Russia is helping Old Man, then the friendship of the states is over.

      Are they hiding something from the Belarusians? By the way, they know who supports Tikhanovskaya and introduces sanctions, now the sounding Baltic speech increases the chances of getting hit in the face. The nuances, who will not delve into where smile

    In the States it has been worse. But they all survived. In a month they will forget about it. This is not Khabarovsk))).
    And in Belarus it is really bad. Security officials can act without presenting documents. This is for the bandits Goldmine. The actions of the security forces are not being investigated. This means that The lives of Belarusians matter in the state. scale. I personally wonder how long Lukashenka will be able to sit still. There are already quite a few criminal cases accumulated behind him. He cannot leave, they will sue. Or run in the Russian Federation (((

    I do not trust all this with a multi-vector policy, because such a policy is fraught with unpleasant surprises and I see no point in feeding such people at the expense of the Russian Federation. Offer to join the Russian Federation. Yes, that means with us, no, so let them live as they can, on their own money.
