Belarusians protest against Russian military bases again (photo)


Alyaksandr Tarnahurski approached the building of the Belarusian Ministry of Defense with a poster in Minsk. Leaflets have appeared in Mahilyou in protest against the Russian air bases.

Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu announced a plan to create a Russian air base in Belarus in April 2013. A group of Russian fighters Su-27 landed at Baranavichy air base #61 in December. Technical personnel also arrived with them from Russia.

Some Russian military objects are already situated on the Belarusian territory: a communication base in Vileika and the radar station Volha near Hantsavichy.
