Russia's use of air defense systems in Belarus could trigger new sanctions – Roman Bezsmertny

Putin's initiative for the State Duma to allow the use of air defense systems during conduct of Russian military exercises in Belarus is a violation of the fundamental international documents. Russia's deployment of air defense systems on the borders of Belarus with the European Union and Ukraine may trigger imposition of new sanctions on the aggressor country.

Roman Bezsmertny, ex-representative of Ukraine in the political subgroup in the Trilateral Contact Group, said this on the air of Channel 5.

"In fact, this step is a violation of the fundamental international documents that have been signed since Brezhnev, including Gorbachev, etc. We will find the relevant provisions in all these documents that prohibit such actions. Is this a reason for new sanctions? Yes, it, obviously, is," he said.
