Video: Belarusian Armed Forces are ready to send peacekeepers to Ukraine, defense minister says

The Belarusian Armed Forces are ready to send peacekeepers to Ukraine’s Donbas region if all necessary conditions are met, Defense Minister Andrey Rawkow told reporters in Minsk on Wednesday.
The deployment of peacekeepers requires approval from the UN Security Council, the country where peacekeepers will be deployed and the country which sends them, General Rawkow said.
It is the president of Belarus who decides whether to send the country’s peacekeepers abroad, Mr. Rawkow said. In addition, each peacekeeper should give their consent.
“If all these conditions are met, we are ready to carry out the task,” Mr. Rawkow said.
According to him, the 103rd Independent Guards Airborne Brigade in Vitsyebsk has a peacekeeping company of 100 servicemen, including 50 permanent staff. The servicemen study the English language and undergo training in various countries that have already been involved in peacekeeping operations.
“This company is ready to fulfill tasks in any part of the world. It is not a problem,” Mr. Rawkow said.
