Zapad 2017 drills is significant step in ensuring Belarus' national security

The exercise Zapad 2017 (West 2017) is a significant step in ensuring national security, said President Alexander Lukashenko on July 6 at the ceremony to honor graduates of higher military educational institutions and higher officers.

Taking into account the growing terrorist threat in the world, active illegal migration, the spread of drugs and the import of weapons, the young generation will have to work hard.

The head of state sets tasks to improve the system of ensuring the border security of Belarus. According to the President, one of the priorities in officers' activities should be instilling a sense of patriotism and readiness to defend the state.
