    The Slavic Brotherhood-2017 joint exercises between Serbia, Russia and Belarus will take place in Belarus, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Belarusian Special Operation Forces Col. Oleg Pechersky said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The latest exercises are currently underway in Serbia, with paratroopers practicing shooting and tactical special group action after landing.

    "This experience of joint preparation is very important for us, because next year we will hold these drills in the Republic of Belarus," Pechersky said at a press conference.

    The first Slavic Brotherhood joint exercises took place in Russia in 2015 while in 2014, the Serbian Special Brigade special operations unit and Russian troops took part in the SREM-2014 drills. The 2016 drills are set to run through November 15 with an active phase expected to be completed on Wednesday.
