Off topic but

If you cannot see the twitter embeds then it is caused by upgrading your edge browser and it neatly comes with "Tracking" in the privacy settings to "Strict". Change back to "Moderate" and you are away.

Apologies if this already advised earlier but I did not see it.

Goodbye Belarus….

Russia to Keep 30,000 Troops in Belarus

Russia’s large-scale military deployment in Belarus, which the United States has long warned could be used as a pretext to build an invasion force aimed at Ukraine, will be extended beyond Sunday when joint exercises had been scheduled to conclude, Belarus’s defense minister announced.

After repeated assurances from Russia and Belarus that the drills would end this weekend as planned, the Belarusian defense minister said on Sunday that the two countries’ militaries would continue to “test” their capabilities because of what they claimed were heightened tensions in eastern Ukraine….

The Belarus defense minister said on Sunday that because of “the growing military activity on the external borders of the Union State and the exacerbation of the situation in the Donbas, the presidents of Belarus and Russia have made the decision to continue the inspection of reaction forces.”

The union state, until recently a largely aspirational entity, refers to a merged state comprising Russia and Belarus that was initiated in 1997 but has recently begun to take on a concrete form as Russia has subordinated the Belarusian military and other state structures to its effective command.

The defense minister did not elaborate on what tests would be carried out, or how long they would last. But his remarks indicated Russian troops would not be leaving Belarus, at least not immediately.….

The announcement on Sunday appeared to mark a reversal from earlier statements. Belarus’ foreign minister, Vladimir Makei, assured journalists last Wednesday that “not a single Russian serviceman and not a single piece of Russian military hardware will remain after these maneuvers.” Also last week, the Kremlin’s spokesman, Dmitri S. Peskov, said that Russia keeping troops in Belarus after the exercises “is not being considered.”…..

Apparently this is in Grodno Belarus according to the comments, so some confusion (deliberate or otherwise) exists. Grodno is up against the border with Ukraine though (approx 8-10km). No comments as to location on your post beneath this one however.
