Vladislav Seleznev

The speaker of the General staff of VSU Vladislav Seleznev in the air of Radio Liberty said that there is no reason to worry about that for the consideration of the illegitimate state Duma passed the draft law, the provisions of which allow the aggressor state to use the defense forces on the borders of Belarus.

According to Seleznev, this is just the technical production of the document, since in 2009 the Union state of Belarus and the Russian Federation has joint control over the airspace of the two States.

The bill – only adaptation of the document, which was recorded in 2009.

Seleznyov assured that the Air forces of Ukraine to perform tasks exclusively in the airspace of Ukraine and the document will not bring any trouble. The situation near the state border is always in the spotlight of the General staff.

Last year’s exercise showed that the APU is able to respond to any incidents and facts of aggression on the opponent’s side, Seleznev said.

In comments filed to the bill Putin asks MPs to ratify the Protocol on amendments and additions to the Agreement between Russia and Belarus on “joint protection” of the border of the Union state airspace and the creation of a Single regional air defense system on February 3, 2009.

The bill filed on the eve of the joint strategic exercises of the armies of Russia and Belarus, the West-2017, which will be held from 14 to 20 September. The Russian military began to arrive in Belarus at the end of July. Officially announced the participation of up to 13 thousand military, anecdotal evidence suggests a much larger group of troops up to 100 thousand people. The exercises will be held in two stages – in Russia and at seven landfills in Belarus.
