This is how the activists of the campaign "Together for Belarus" expressed their protest against the presence of the Russian troops on the territory of Belarus.

Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu told about the plans to deploy a Russian air base on the territory of Belarus during the meeting with President of Belarus Alyaksandr Lukashenka last April. In December, an alert force of 4 Russian fighter jets Su-27 landed at the aerodrome of the 61st fighter air squadron in Baranavichy, with a crew of technicians.

Apart from that, two Russian military objects are currently located on the territory of Belarus: the Russian naval communication unit in Vilejka and the early-warning radar station "Voga" near Hantsavichy.
