Partnership in the field of peacekeeping – the school of the real fighting brotherhood.

When we are together we are unconquerable! This yet again was made certain during the active phase of the Ukrainian-Belorussian-Russian maneuvres “Slavic commonwealth 2012”. More than 300 soldiers with 30 units of military equipment consisting of the composite battalion learned to defend peace here.

According to the opinion of many participants of the event, the peacekeeping maneuvres turned into a school of the real fighting brotherhood, which gave them the opportunity to see each other in the different situations, to feel the team spirit, and themselves as a part of a big family.

 - As the head of the maneuvres, I am satisfied with the actions of the soldiers of three countries. Taking into account that only paratroopers came from Ukraine, Belorussia and Russia it wasn’t difficult to control them. Complete mutual understanding that contributed to the successful execution of all set tasks ruled between soldiers of the "winged infantry", - Sergiy Lisovyy, the Colonel, the chief of the air forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, commented actions of the composite Ukrainian-Belarusian-Russian peacekeeping battalion.
