China and Belarus Meet for Joint Military Exercises

Chinese troops have arrived in Belarus to participate in joint military exercises, a move likely to concern Europe.

The anti-terrorist training exercise known as “Eagle Assault” is scheduled to take place from July 8-19 near the southwestern border city Brest, next to Poland and Ukraine. It is a clear provocation against nato, which will be holding a summit in Washington this week.

Not only are the exercises a sign of China’s closer military ties with Belarus, but they further strengthen China’s relationship with Russia, who essentially acts as Belarus’s sovereign.

Events taking place in the world are alarming, the situation is uneasy, therefore we are going to practice new forms and methods of performing tactical tasks.
—Maj. Gen. Vadim Denisenko, chief of Belarussian special operations command

The joint training aims to enhance the coordination capabilities of the participating troops and deepen practical cooperation between the two armies.

Belarus’s ties to Asia:

  • In 2018, the first “Eagle Assault” exercises are held in Shandong province, eastern China.
  • In 2021, the “Vostok” multilateral joint military exercise is hosted by Russia, joined by China and Belarus.
  • In 2022, Belarus is used as a launchpad for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
  • In April 2023, Russia and Belarus begin developing a new “security concept.”
  • In June 2023, Russia gives Belarus nuclear weapons.
  • In 2024, it appears China sent a cargo plane of aid to Russia through Belarus.
  • On April 2, Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko says, “We are preparing for war.”

Back in the USSR: Belarus’s absorption back into Russia’s sphere and induction into the Shanghai Cooperation Organization this year show it stands against Western Europe. Bible prophecy foretells of a coming war between a German-led Europe and a Russia-China-led Asian axis. We expect Belarus will be part of that Asian alliance.

War is drawing near, but there is great hope beyond the storm.
