Belarus servicemen to hold major trainings "Union Shield" in "Ashuluk", Russia.

Vadim Scheglov reports: Ukrainians will partake in the maneuvers for the first time.
Joint Belarusian/Russian trainings "Union Shield" will be launched on September, 16. The main exercises will unfold on the land fields "Gorokhovetsky" and "Ashuluk". The location was chosen not accidentally. This time the military decided to exercise away from the borders of NATO members. Almost 5 thousand servicemen will be taking part in the military trainings from the Belarusian side.
A single regional air defense system will be tested for the very first time here, too. Belarusian salvo fires systems "Smerch", "Osa" and "C-300" will be able to shoot at maximum range, which is impossible on the land fields of Belarus.
