According to him, in such conditions, the policy of Belarus is aimed at “countering modern military threats”.
"The regional grouping of troops and forces of Belarus and Russia is ready to deploy and carry out tasks for the armed protection of the Union State.

Variants of an adequate response to its changes are also being produced," Khrenin said.
