«I draw your attention to the fact that, despite the biased hype that is created around these teachings, the Republic of Belarus strictly abides by all its obligations under international and regional treaties on disarmament verification, confidence-building and security in the framework of the UN and the OSCE. Guided by our state at the end of 2016 officially informed States parties of the Vienna document 2011 (the Vienna document 2011 on confidence-building measures and security. – «GORDON») on the forthcoming joint strategic exercise,» he said.

Belokonev added that the invitations were sent out to observe the teachings of the representatives of the UN, OSCE, NATO, CIS, the organization of collective security Treaty and the International Committee of the red cross, as well as in the military-diplomatic corps of foreign countries accredited at the embassies in Belarus.

«Only invited more than 80 people. In addition to observation and illumination of the active phase of the exercises, accredited about 150 representatives of the media,» said Belokonev.

Exercises «West-2017» will be held in Belarus from 14 to 20 September. Russian soldiers began to arrive in the country on July 24.

Their concern about their conduct has already expressed the country’s European Union and NATO.

Secretary of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov does not exclude that under the guise of exercises can place a new invasion of Russian troops.

The Minister of defence of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak believes that the exercises can serve as a cover for deploying strike groups of the Russian Federation.

According to the foreign Ministry, the exercises will be attracted to 12.7 thousand.
