Belarus launches the command-staff exercise of the Armed Forces. It will be held until 12 September. The main theme in training troops, i.e. to repel aggression of the enemy, was chosen taking into account the analysis of the world situation. The training will involve six firing ranges areas, as well as some districts of Brest, Grodno, Minsk and Mogilev regions. The maneuvers will feature 7,500 servicemen, 260 armored vehicles and about three dozen units of combat air force.
