Russian Forces Take Part In Combat Drills With Belarus As BoJo Warns Of Worst Crisis For Decades

This footage shows Russian troops taking part in combat exercises with their Belarusian counterparts as Boris Johnson calls the Ukraine crisis the “biggest security crisis that Europe has faced for decades”.

The latest video of Russian forces engaging in war games with their Belarusian allies was shared by the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) on 10th February.

The accompanying MoD statement said: “At the training ground in the (Belarusian) region of Brest, Union Resolve 2022 joint exercises with combat crews of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) of the Eastern Military District (VVO) carried out air defence duties as part of the Unified Regional Air Defence System of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.

“Personnel completed the deployment of military equipment into position and carried out tasks to control the airspace in the established area of responsibility.

“Earlier, units of the Air Defence Forces travelled a distance of over 9,000 kilometres from a deployment point in the (far-eastern) region of Khabarovsk Krai.”

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called the situation with the Ukraine, where around 100,000 Russian troops have been amassed around the border for some months, the “biggest security crisis that Europe has faced for decades”.

At NATO’s headquarters in Brussels, Johnson said: “This is probably the most dangerous moment, I would say, in the course of the next few days, in what is the biggest security crisis that Europe has faced for decades, and we’ve got to get it right.”

NATO has also bolstered its forces in the region as the US sends troops to Poland and Romania. Last week, a British RAF jet landed in Poland with 350 troops, and the UK has sent anti-tank missiles to the Ukraine to help bolster its defences.

The Kremlin has claimed that it has no plans to invade the Ukraine, but wants the West to keep the country and other former Soviet nations out of NATO.
