MINSK, 18 March (BelTA) – A joint staff exercise of the joint command of the Belarusian-Russian regional force grouping is in progress on 18-22 March, representatives of the Belarusian Defense Ministry told BelTA.

The exercise is supervised by Chief of the General Staff, Belarusian First Deputy Defense Minister Oleg Belokonev. Personnel involved in the exercise are supposed to practice making plans to use the Belarusian-Russian regional force for the sake of ensuring military security of the Union State of Belarus and Russia.

Apart from the joint command of the Belarusian-Russian regional force the exercise involves duty command teams of Air Force and Air Defense units, special operations units, territorial defense staffs, and representatives of Belarusian central government agencies.

The exercise is supposed to improve cohesion of military command bodies and personnel of the joint command as they make plans to deploy the Belarusian-Russian regional military force for operations together with other units of the Belarusian army. The exercise represents the initial step in preparations for the Belarusian-Russian army exercise Union Shield 2019, which is scheduled to take place in Russia in September.

Once the exercise is over, the results will be analyzed and conclusions will be made in order to adjust further measures to prepare for the Belarusian-Russian army exercise Union Shield 2019.
