The military budget of Belarus: where to spend "crumbs"?



Belarus, as a peacemaker, does not seem to need an army. This conclusion is made by military experts against the background of an analysis of the defense budgets of the country of previous years. Recall that 18 December 2015 of the year in the Republic of Belarus for a record short time (for two days!) The budget for the 2016 year was adopted. And since the coming year promises to be even more stressful and difficult for the economy, numerous analysts consider it an honor to plunge into the calculations of who and how much will fall out of the “bins” of the state in the coming year.

The Military-Political Review also assessed the military component of the budget. After analyzing the volume of cash allocations for the needs of the Ministry of Defense of previous years, the conclusions were not the most positive. It is important to note that according to the results of the study, the following pattern was derived - the volume of financing in recent years has been constantly growing, but in terms of foreign currency (US dollars) were approximately at the same level. For example, financing the needs of the Ministry of Defense of Belarus in 2014 amounted to 7,9 trillion. rubles, which is equivalent, at the time of the adoption of the budget, was 779,4 million dollars. The following 2015 year showed a positive trend in the increase in the budget in Belarusian rubles, with 7,9 trillion. rubles, up to 8,8 trillion However, in dollar terms it was already 746,1 million.

Interestingly, in 2016, the 10 trillion was allocated to the needs of the military department. rubles! But again, when converted to dollars (at the rate at the end of January 2016) - this amount turns into a modest 540 million. This figure is already significantly lower than even in neighboring Lithuania (574 million euros), whose army is four ( !) times less.

However, the leadership of the Baltic countries does not regret allocating additional funds for the purchase of new weapons. Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia annually increase allocations for their own armed forces, procure new radars, armored vehicles, howitzers, helicopters, anti-tank systems and MANPADS. Against the background of the new defense budget of the Republic of Belarus, the statement of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense of the Region about the purchase of 88 German Boxer armored personnel carriers worth about 400 million euros (about 8,5 trillion rubles) just looks mocking.

It is important to emphasize that the rest of our neighbors are not lagging behind in the same indicators. Thus, a poor and belligerent Ukraine declared that more than 100 billion hryvnias (a little more than four billion dollars) would be spent on military needs this year, and the military department of the Republic of Poland could count on the 8,9 billion dollars, which were record for the country this year. ! Apparently, it was not for nothing that the Minister of Defense of Belarus, Lieutenant-General Andrei Ravkov, in one of his interviews with the national television, unequivocally pointed out the possibility of potential threats and challenges from Poland.

An important factor is the fact that the NATO leadership, in a “voluntary-compulsory” procedure, recommended to the member countries of the alliance to bring their military spending to the level of 2% of GDP. And everyone is striving for it successfully, and some, for example, Estonia, even exceeded this indicator (2,07%). For comparison, in Belarus’s 2015, the military budget was about 1% of GDP, and in 2016, according to forecasts, it will be even less - 0,8%.

It is not difficult to calculate what all the same can afford to buy the defense department of Belarus with the allocated funds. Moreover, the military-political leadership of the country declared the need to acquire new aircraft, the air defense system, the Polonez MLRS and the planned modernization of numerous weapons.

And again, it will be appropriate to recall the statement by Andrei Ravkov on plans to purchase Yak-2016 aircraft from Russia on 130 and Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems. In addition, in the summer of 2015, it became known that a contract was signed between the Ministry of Defense of Belarus and the Russian Helicopters holding for the supply of six Russian-made military transport helicopters Mi-2016MTV-8 in 5.

Let us turn to the numbers: four combat training Yak-130s will cost the defense budget about 60 million. The amount of the deal with the Russian Helicopters holding is estimated at $ 100 million ($ 15 million per car). And all these are minimal, primary needs for aviation. As a result, we already get the amount of almost a third of the allocated funds (160 million dollars), excluding the purchase of even one new modern fighter, whose approximate export value is about 50 million.

Now consider the possibilities of the Belarusian defense ministry in acquiring air defense systems. For the new complex "Top-M2" will have to pay about two million, and the desired division will cost 30 million. And, of course, it would be simply indecent not to say how much a C-400 division (which includes eight launchers, a control center, a radar station) can cost. Its cost is as much as 500 million dollars, which is almost the entire budget of the Belarusian military department.

Yes, there is an assumption that in the case of a purchase, Russia will lower prices slightly or allow a deferment of payment. But, nevertheless, for Belarus, at the moment, such amounts remain exorbitant. Summing up, one can say the following: with such funding for the defense sector, sooner or later the question will arise: pay the soldiers ’money allowance and feed the conscripts or buy modern equipment.

At the same time, it is absolutely clear that the financing of the defense complex of our country and the number did not stand with the level of military expenditures of the neighboring countries and the military assistance rendered to them from the North Atlantic Alliance. And this directly affects all sectors in the field of national security. In addition, one should not rely on the help of Russia, as the main strategic military partner of Belarus, it is necessary to take into account the current economic situation there.

Based on this, Minsk needs to independently find opportunities for organizing and adjusting its own weapons, as well as looking for new partners. These include the joint development with the People's Republic of China of the modern MLRS Polonez, the beginning of work on the development and creation of their own cruise missiles, the formation of new, modern areas of air defense, and the modernization of existing weapons. In the foreseeable future, it is planned to continue re-equipping the country's army with modern types of weapons and military equipment, including those produced by national manufacturers. In particular, the equipment for the integrated protection of aircraft from high-precision weapons - Onboard complexes "Satellite" and "Talisman". It is not excluded that, not without the help of Ukrainian colleagues, the production of active Barrier and Dynamic Knife protection systems for tanks T-72B.

The main thing is that all these projects should be brought to a logical conclusion, and should not be interrupted due to problems with financing. Belarus on the world political arena of 2015 of the year was perhaps the most important peacemaker, which brought dividends. However, this is not a reason to stop “feeding” your army, otherwise there is a risk to start feeding someone else’s.

      Belarus brothers and nothing to strain spending a lot of money on defense! It’s necessary to moderate your (read father’s) ambitions and agree on the role of the Belarusian military district in the framework of the union state! Contain an appropriate army. Spend the released funds on the economy! Give the opportunity to create a military base in Russia. And then no NATO country will ever consider contacting White Russia!

        And they do not strain and do not spend, the rearmament of the army of Belarus is at the expense of Russia. So the article says how much they hurt the Yak 130 and air defense systems, this is nonsense.
        700 million dollars is a havchik, salary, social welfare, fuel, utilities and other trifles. Belarus did not have money for re-equipment and does not. Everything comes at the expense of Russia and not on credit, but as a gift.

        Not so simple. What a howl will raise "civilized" I even keep quiet. How the Belarusians themselves will react to such infringement of sovereignty. We have been living without the Union for 25 years, a generation has grown up that cannot imagine how it is possible to live in one country. Problems may arise even with the most adequate citizens, and if you take into account a certain number of stoned people who take an example from country 404, then riots are very likely. Nevertheless, the airbase seems to be there? Yes, and in case of war, there must be plans for cover and deployment there. Interaction is well written in the fictional Hot Spring 2015. It has not come true yet, thank God, but it is very likely that it will be, just later.

        So we must first close the rain channel ourselves, the echo of Moscow. However, they thrive. Because a significant part of the "race ylita" look to the west much more faithfully than the Belarusians. Those, with all their desire, are unable to resist the West, looking at our "ambiguity" are beginning to look for a way out to the West themselves. Something like this.

          There’s no bazaar, that’s the way it is. The only thing we are discussing is the Belarusian military budget and we don’t need to turn the arrows into our earplugs. If our state provides a lot of gratuitous help, it seems like the Russians have the right to know why the Chekist is not more tough with his Minsk colleague.

              In short: look at China. I mean a paradoxical situation - for almost 30 years now China has been "building capitalism" under the leadership of ... the Communist Party. But at first glance, this is a paradox, and if you look a little deeper, then there are no inventions, nothing new - this is the NEP policy, which Soviet Russia successfully applied to get out of the devastation of the civil war, almost a hundred years ago. Of course, in a changed world, taking into account many mistakes. Gorbachev's main crime is that he let go of the party reins (removed the "leading role of the CPSU") in government, hoping that with the introduction of elements of democracy (in the best sense of the word), the economy "by itself" will begin modernization. But we got what we got. And China, having looked at everything that was happening in the USSR-Russia, made the right conclusions, for a start, crushed Tiananmen with tanks, and only then began to build a "bright future".

                  Excuse me, but where was Russia in the 90s, when, for example, only to eliminate the consequences of the Chernobyl accident, Belarus spent 20-30 billion dollars annually. When there was an all-Russian "cut". Half of our military pensioners are Russians, who in those days rushed out of Russia not from a happy life. So there is no need to reason from a comfortable position right now, let's see how relations have developed over the entire post-Soviet period. By the way, you have not tried to consider the question - how will it be if the oil falls to $ 10? We have lived under the sanctions for 15 years, the usual, and besides forest, peat, potassium salts, there are no raw materials, to sell abroad, except that we produce nothing at "bad" enterprises. And what will happen to the Russian economy.

                    If it falls that way, Belarus will not sell 6 million tons of oil annually, as you ask for $ 142, how much you can google on the market, because you no longer have a higher price and then the export of oil products from the republic will come to naught like all social.

        Belarus always relies on fraternal assistance from Russia.

        Only in this case, fraternal assistance is one-sided. It is not recalled that Russia received assistance from Belarus.

        No money, no help, and let us be realistic, we will never help. But ... New divisions, divisions, flotillas, etc. are formed anywhere, but not on the shortest route from Europe to Moscow. The military infrastructure is not being built up in Smolensk, Bryansk and other regions bordering on Belarus. Why is that? Because a probable traitor is close at hand, or because the leadership of Russia is confident that in the event of the hour "H" Belarus, after all, will cover this direction, at least for the time required for mobilization? By the way, this indirectly characterizes well the state of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus - apparently the General Staff of Russia believes that their state is no worse than the state of the Russian Armed Forces. At least in this direction.
        Now estimate how much it costs to deploy a full-fledged military grouping in the central direction. To protect the capital.

          Dig the Belarusian sea on the border with Russia, or instead of Lithuania, we will form a flotilla and even a second Baltic fleet. For the overland parts of the campaign, they missed a lot in the current moment of life. The air defense is being rearmed in the Moscow region, and this is already the first air defense line in today's realities, a division is being formed near Smolensk and the 1st tank in the western direction, and Kaliningrad is being rearmed. So after the story with the base for the Russian Air Force in joint interests, when Shoigu said that by the end of 2015 we would open it, and Father Alexander Borodach performed - “I'm not in kugs! Gebats! "So all the oohs and oohs are like, You have nothing!"

          already the campaign is not rolled. For a long time, the majority accepted it as an objective reality, given in a sensation, which we are constantly reminded of - Belarus is a sovereign state, again, do not forget Batskino - “We don’t trade in suvaryanity.” Current that your sovereign Armed Forces, according to the constitution, have no right to fight outside republics, even within the framework of the CSTO. So, do them yourself and let Butler give orders - they should be built in one line, or two. Well, with weapons, at internal Russian prices, and even with a loan within the framework of the CSTO and the EAEU ... .so you get the same.

    Belarus in the world political arena of 2015 was almost the most important peacekeeper, which brought its dividends. However, this is not a reason to stop "feeding" your army, otherwise there is a risk of starting to feed someone else's.


    While LUKASHENKO holds the state structure in the gauntlets for the most part, nothing terrible will happen there.
    Problems will begin if the country follows the Ukrainian path ... then there will be a mother not to grieve.

    Weapons in BELARUS are enough for partisan and local warfare and there’s simply not enough internal resources ... RUSSIA will help if only there is no betrayal from the local political elite.
    Having finished with UKRAINE WASHINGTON will try in accordance with the politics of divide and rule to tear apart and BELARUS ... wait and see.

      Lukashenka is tied with loans from the West, as well as all the countries of the world ... It also gives loans to Minsk and Russia, but just so that Belarus does not carry out the "privatization", which is what Western creditors demand from it. We need its defense complex, the West does not. We need an air base, the West does not. So Lukashenka is spinning, like in a frying pan ...

      A full-fledged union state is possible only under the condition of independent Russia and the presence of its sovereign currency - the ruble, today Russia is a colony of the West, and its ruble in fact is a repainted colonial dollar.
      Understanding all this, Putin tried to take the Central Bank of the Russian Federation three times, but his western masters turned out to be stronger, then Putin took the Crimea. This historical moment should be considered the beginning of an open war for the independence and sovereignty of Russia.

    Yes, there is an assumption that in the case of a purchase, Russia will slightly reduce prices or allow deferred payment.

    I’ll be very surprised if Russia receives real money for its weapons. Most likely there will be netting: leasing a military base or products of Belarusian manufactures.
    Against the background of the new defense budget of the Republic of Belarus, the statement of the Ministry of Protection of the Territory of Lithuania about the purchase of 88 German Boxer armored personnel carriers in the amount of about 400 million euros (about 8,5 trillion rubles) just looks mocking.

    The author, would you even give in the article the approximate figures of the BTT in service and in warehouses in Belarus. We have thousands of Soviet tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers, against their background 88 Boxer armored personnel carriers are just a laugh. On earth, we have enough weapons, albeit not up-to-date, but we will be able to give them just a little tooth. But sadness is with the sky - that's why we buy Russian air defense systems.

    There is nothing surprising in this. The spending on the army is primarily a reflection of the state of the economy. If we take our neighboring Poland, the GDP growth of this country continues for 23 years without interruption, so they can afford such expenses. Our "ycanomics" is in a famous place, hence the result.
