MINSK, 25 May (BelTA) – The international military science conference “Applied aspects of research in defense and security: 20 years of expertise of the Research Institute of the Armed Forces” is taking place in Minsk, BelTA learned from the State Secretariat of the Security Council.

State Secretary of the Security Council Aleksandr Volfovich addressed the attendees with a welcoming speech. “Scientific support for the military security of the Republic of Belarus is taking on new significance amidst increased tensions and a deepening crisis of confidence between key centers of power, the devaluation of international security agreements, the buildup of troops on the eastern flank of NATO. In this regard, this forum serves as an important platform to exchange expert opinions and assessments on the evolution of contemporary wars and strategic deterrence in the context of the comprehensive system of measures to ensure the security of the state,” he said.

Aleksandr Volfovich believes that constructive solutions to urgent problems that will be offered during the conference will contribute not only to the improvement of the conceptual foundations in the military sphere, but also to the national security of Belarus as a whole.

For two decades, employees of the Research Institute of the Armed Forces have completed more than 450 research and development projects, prepared about 20 scientific papers, 34 educational publications, 45 military history essays and analytical reviews, published more than 800 articles in scientific journals in the country and abroad.

The recommendations based on research outcomes are used to improve the Armed Forces. The most important of them are proposals on conceptual documents related to the armament system of the Armed Forces and the formation of territorial defense. The Research Institute started training highly qualified scientists on its own (three doctors of science, more than 30 candidates of science, four professors and more than 20 associate professors were trained here). This allows it to be confident about the future.
