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).
