Russia is moving two divisions of its S-400 Triumph air-defense systems, designed to take down enemy warplanes, into neighboring Belarus to take part in military exercises, the Ministry of Defense confirmed this weekend.

In a statement, officials wrote, two divisions of the surface-to-air S-400 ‘Triumph’ missile complex have completed the loading @ the station in Khabarovsk Krai, in Russia’s Far East. The rockets will now be transported along railways to Belarus.

Development of the S-400 system began in the late 1980’s, and the missiles went into service in 2007. Russia has also sold them to nations including China and Turkey, and in November, officials announced that the rockets were being delivered to India.

International analysts have described the S-400 as arguably the best strategic surface-to-air missile systems in operation today, and sales of the system have been aggressively lobbied against by the USA.

Moscow had previously announced that its soldiers would be conducting joint defense exercises with Belarusian troops in February, as part of an inspection of the two nations’ ability to coordinate military defensive actions together.

They will hold Union Resolve drills from February 10-20, and before that, the two military partners will practice redeploying troops and creating task forces within a short period of time in dangerous directions, according to Oleg Voinov, a senior Belarusian military official.

Voinov also stated that one goal of the exercises is to practice reinforcing the common national state borders.,q_glossy,ret_img,w_980,h_551/

This week, the US State Department warned that the upcoming exercises could be a sign that Russia is planning an invasion of Ukraine, with one official saying, we are very alert to everything that sanctioned Russia is doing.

The fact that we’re seeing this movement of forces into Belarus clearly gives the Russians another approach should they decide to take further military action against Ukraine. The Kremlin has denied that it has any intention to attack its neighbor.

However the fact of the matter is that Russia supports and respects the Minsk Peace Treaty over Ukraine, while the US regime in Washington wants the opposite and support their war industry in order to avoid sudden bankruptcy of the powerful economic nation.
