Six Russian Su-27 fighter jets and three military transport planes have been deployed at Bobruisk airfield in Belarus Thursday to boost the airspace defenses of the two countries.

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko has invited Russian forces to fend off potential NATO threat, Russian RT news reports.

"In case of continuing build-up of military forces in countries bordering Belarus, the country will take adequate response measures," a Belarus Defense Ministry statement says.

The aircraft from the Western military district have been deployed to the airbase in line with a bilateral agreement on the joint protection of the Union State's airspace and will reinforce the four Russian Su-27 Flanker fighter jets already at the nearby Baranovichi airbase, Ria Novosti informs.

NATO has begun military exercises in Poland near the borders with Belarus and Ukraine amid the current political standoff between Russia and the West over Ukraine's Crimea region.

"My family have always been peasant farmers"

Will, in each family comes the moment of decay. They have always been peasant farmers and the last in the line has descended to become...a paid a*slicker of a gay and insane dictator.

Yes sa-sha I agree.

.....;-)....hopefully we've got each other, Optimistic. I've written a few words about Lenin, about bolshevicks and about their methods because what I can see right now in the policy, methods and media of the so-called "World
leaders" is more and more just bolshevism and even fascism.

Optimistic - 15 Mar 2014 // 20:53:43

sa-sha sorry, I apologise, the Russian Aristocrats created someone of wisdom and humanity when they created you.

My family have always been peasant farmers and struggled a lot.

He was talking about Belarus omg...

Sorry, Optimistic, but my forefathers were Russian Nobility (aristocrats). When Mr.Lenin and bolshevicks committed
the Coup d'etat, seized power and launched the Red Terror, my forefathers were among those Russian officers (The White Guard) who faught against Lenin and his Red Scum, against those bandits who slaughtered and terrified not aristocrats only, but the entire Russian people, who attributed to themselves the exclusive right to decide what was good and what was bad, to speak "we" on the name of the entire people as if they were that very ENTIRE people. "We", it is a total intolerance to the dissent, to anyone who prefers "me", and this intolerance ends by a terror and a slaughter.

Excuse me Agent Picadilly, I thought we destroyed all the white Russians after the Bolshevik Revolution, we dont need aristocrats just workers.

I agree with you on everything else but I have special hatred for people who were the white russians.

Bulgaria should be showing solidarity with our white Russian brothers and sending several divisions of battle ready troops to Belarus to face down the fascist western aggressors.

True, Optimistic and it is only fair. I wondered, what Belarus will do having NATOs built up near its boarder? Lukashenko is a very clever man. If he was a President of Ukraine, Maidan will be done and over with in two hours.

Yes NATO is increasing military flights in Eastern Europe and Russia should do the same.
