Pentagon commented on the possible creation of a Russian air base in Belarus


“Belarus is a sovereign state and can independently decide whether to build its own air base at its place or to place someone else’s. But we and our allies would consider this a destabilization of the situation ”,
A spokesman said.

“The Belarusian Ministry of Defense is more aware of the situation in the region,” said Carpenter. “But we see no military threats for Belarus either from the East or from the West, in particular from NATO. If we gain strength in the countries neighboring Belarus, these actions are only defensive in nature. ”

It is reported that since Monday Carpenter is in Minsk on an official visit.

In November, Alexander Lyapkin, head of the Main Staff of the Russian Aerospace Force, said that in the event of a positive issue regarding the establishment of a base in Bobruisk (Belarus), 12 combat aircraft and a helicopter unit would be deployed - four transport and combat Mi-8. ”

    And under Hitler, these bastards only strengthened the defense. We will understand without advisers.

      They put pressure on Lukashenko, trying to bend. It’s not for nothing that this head of the Pentagon personally came to Belarus.
      They may even try to buy big money. And they scare sanctions. If only against Russia to tune, grease, promise the golden mountains.
      I hope Grygorich understands this.

        He understands everything. Here from yesterday’s speech on the WTO:
        “Not so long ago, yesterday, they said that, in general, they would not like to see us there. Today they are actively pushing us to this. Who? What, do we have well-wishers in the world? No. There is continuous competition in the economy. I always, when our rivals are pushing for some things, I seriously think about why this"

      No.
      Everyone knows that everywhere and always Russia destabilizes the situation.
      (All the most "objective, honest and respected" media outlets in America and Europe confirm this.)
      Putin is to blame.
      And the valiant Americans then have to restore everything. laughing

      Russia is returning its zones of influence that it was forced to give back in the 90s. And the mattresses cannot like it, that's why all these squeals. I believe that the time will come when our bases will appear in Vietnam, Venezuela and Cyprus, which is even more upset Washington.

    But they forgot to ask NATO whether Belarusians somehow decide to build a base or not, something the main NATO member of the United States does not particularly ask where to place their bases.

    Purely American. We (the Americans) "never interfere" in the affairs of other states, but we warn you that if you do this, you will be very sorry. And then according to the pattern rolled over the years.

    So we, if we strengthen ourselves, solely for defense purposes. Only now, NATO (that is, states) is being strengthened exclusively at our borders. And we, for some reason, are not strengthening, for example, in Mexico, in Cuba. And we should get closer. That concern was not virtual.

      I know, but you need to talk about this by itself.
      It's just that the Pentagon's "concern" about Russia-Belarus relations is logically similar to Russia's concern about the US-Canada relationship, and if they speak out about this why don't we worry about the state of affairs in Canada.
