Ukraine-crisis / Russia-Belarus: Loukachenko announces military maneuvers Russia-Belarus in February

Moscow, 17 January (Reuters) - Russia and Belarus will participate in February at Joint military maneuvers, announced President Belarusse Alexander Loukachenko, cited Monday by the Belta agency, on the background of tensions about Ukraine.

Kiev and Western countries criticize Russia to massage tens of thousands of soldiers, according to their estimates, near its border with Ukraine. Russia denies any invasion project of his neighbor.

"We planned to start maneuvers in February. Attach a specific date and let us know it, so that we do not reproach us to massage troops from nowhere, as if we were preparing to go to war "said Alexander Loukachenko to his Defense Minister.
