Belarus has trained with NATO to bring down "enemy" aircraft. It's Russia?

Belarusian and Polish military trained to shoot down enemy planes.

Contrary to the fact that Belarus calls Russia its loyal military partner, it became known that the Belarusian military had trained to shoot down enemy planes together with the Polish military. Given the fact that Belarus acted in conjunction with NATO, it is likely that we can talk about Russian airplanes, which raises a lot of questions regarding how close Minsk is to Russia in relation to Moscow.

“On March 25, a joint training of the Air Force and Air Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Belarus and the Polish Air Force takes place on the exchange of information on the air situation and aircraft flights. The training is carried out in preparation for joint actions to ensure the safety of the World Hockey Championship 2021 (to be held in Minsk and Riga) and the European Games 2023 (to be held in Krakow). According to the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Belarus, the joint training was planned back in November 2019 and is part of the International Military Cooperation Plan for 2020 ”, - informs the information publication "Naviny".

It should be clarified that at the moment it remains unknown what potential enemy the Polish and Belarusian military were jointly training against, however, given Minsk’s intentions to go deeper into cooperation with NATO, some concerns arise.
