According to the Ministry of Defense, a maneuver with Russian troops has begun in Belarus. This reports the German news website

The training is planned for a period of five days. Belarus, which borders Russia and Ukraine, is a close ally of Russia. According to Belarus’ own ‘Hajun’ project, which monitors military activities on the territory, flights of both Belarusian Air Force and Russian Air Force planes and helicopters were recorded on Thursday. It is suspected that these exercises may take place instead of the previously canceled ‘Union Shield’ exercises.
