During the Slavic Brotherhood-2020 military exercise, servicemen of Belarus and Russia practiced repelling a military aggression against the Union State, the chief of the Belarusian Armed Forces’ General Staff told the Belarus-1 TV channel.


"A joint grouping of [Russian and Belarusian] forces practiced tasks related to repelling a joint aggression against the Union State," First Deputy Defense Minister Major-General Alexander Volfovich said.

"As part of this stage [of the exercises], the troops practiced capturing defense lines and positions, combat actions aimed at holding a tactical defense zone, fire support of defending troops, airborne assault, aviation support," he said.
