Belorussian Special Forces to Join Russian Anti-Terror Operations

Viktor Drachev / TASS

Belorussian President Alexander Lukashenko approved the draft of an international agreement on the participation of Belorussian special forces units in counter-terrorism operations on Russian territory. 

In the agreement, Belarus' State Security Committee is mandated to conduct negotiations about the terms of the draft agreement. It is also authorized to make basic changes and additions to the agreement as needed.

The full text of the agreement has not yet been published. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
