Belarusian army to abandon boots and foot wraps


The Belarusian Ministry of Defense
announced that it was going to abandon boots and foot wraps. The announcement
was made at the height of the current draft.

Conscripts will start
wearing modern army shoes and socks. The Ministry informs that the change is to
take place for hygienic reasons.

For example, the Ukrainian army already abandoned boots and foot wraps in
autumn. Belarusian draftees will have to wear them a bit longer because
officials from the Ministry of Defense have not set the terms for this change
