It is reminded that the joint military training will run in two stages. At the first stage before February 9, the Belarusian and Russian militaries will practice protecting vital state and military facilities, as well as the state border in the airspace.

At the second stage that will start on February 10-20 and is called ‘Union Resolve 2022’, the joint drills will be held, in which the troops will practice fighting and repelling external aggression, countering terrorism, and protecting the interests of the Union State.

As the Russian Defense Ministry reported, during the joint drills, the troops will practice reinforcing the state border in potential areas of the illegal penetration of armed gangs into the territory of Belarus and shutting down channels of the supply of arms, eliminating outlawed armed gangs and enemy subversive and reconnaissance groups.
