Russia Sends 6 Fighter Jets to Belarus Against Potential NATO Threat
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.

.....;-)....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.
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.
