More domestic, foreign threats in Belarus’ new military doctrine

More domestic, foreign threats in Belarus’ new military doctrine

MINSK, 4 April (BelTA) – The new Military Doctrine has expanded the range of domestic and foreign threats to Belarus, BelTA learned from Belarusian Defense Minister Andrei Ravkov on 4 April.

Presenting the document in the lower chamber of the Belarus parliament on 4 April, the Belarusian Defense Minister said that the strategic document relies on conclusions from a systemic analysis of the military and political situation evolving around Belarus and in the world. Close attention is paid to negative trends connected with the development of the concept of color revolutions and schemes designed to change the constitutional order and break the territorial integrity of countries by provoking domestic armed conflicts.

Andrei Ravkov said: “The bill lists a number of main external and internal military dangers for Belarus. The list of dangers has been considerably expanded in comparison with the one in the national security concept.” In particular, it takes into account the factors that lie outside the military sphere yet may essentially influence the national defensive capability.

Apart from that, the number of measures that Belarus will take for the sake of ensuring its military security has been expanded.
