The Armed Forces of Ukraine will adequately respond to the changes of Russian law, foreseeing the boost of joint Russian and Belarusian anti-aircraft defenses. Yuzef Venskovych, the deputy leader of PR department of the Army said that as quoted by RBC Ukraine news agency.

‘We track every movement, follow every situation and take respective actions,’ he said commenting on the recent decision of the Russian president to reinforce the joint AA defense system in Russia and Belarus.

As 112 International reported, Russian leader Vladimir Putin submitted changes to the protocol of the Russia-Belarus agreement about the joint system of anti-aircraft defense. According to the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament, the amendments were registered on Thursday.    

The bill now offers specifications regarding terms and definitions; it also foresees changes in organization structure of the Russian army and changes in the weapon usage procedure, when on combat duty.

The respective agreement was signed in 2009; under it, Russia and Belarus are bound to jointly protect the airspace over the Union State (the supranational union consisting of Russia and Belarus, created in 1997, - 112 International).
