Sohu: flights of Russian Tu-160 near the border with Belarus served as a signal to the West

Cooperation between Russia and Belarus will strengthen against the background of aggravated Russian-Ukrainian relations and provocations by NATO. This is the conclusion reached by analysts of the Chinese edition of Sohu.

Longtime allies Moscow and Minsk are stepping up military cooperation. The major strategic exercises of the two countries “West-2021” are scheduled for October. According to observers, against the background of the escalation of the conflict in Donbass, the strengthening of border areas will be of particular importance for the Russian Federation.

The union of Belarus and Russia will become even stronger if the situation in Eastern Europe escalates, the authors of the article believe. So, in 2020, joint exercises “Slavic Brotherhood” have already been held. One of the most memorable maneuvers was the flight of Tu-160 supersonic bombers near the border with Belarus.

Thus, according to Chinese observers, Moscow made it clear to Western opponents that the territory of the union state is under protection.

“Russia has drawn a red line for NATO in the sky over Belarus,” the authors are convinced.

Minsk can become a point of influence for Moscow in a region with high NATO activity. The new West 2021 exercises will strengthen cooperation between states. The significance of the maneuvers will only grow against the backdrop of growing tensions in Eastern Europe, Sohu concludes.

Earlier in Sohu, they wrote how the provocations of Poland in the area of ​​the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline forced Russia to send a warship to protect the ships.
