Zhirinovsky asks Lukashenka to send troops to Ukraine

The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) insists on occupation of Ukraine by Belarusian and Russian troops.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky thinks it should be done by May 9. “The entire country will breathe freely and will be able to celebrate another victory,” the LDPR leader told RSN radio.
He said members of all groups in the State Duma demanded that the Russian leadership should take urgent measures to stop the punitive operation of the Kyiv authorities.
“Our leadership will take a range of measures to provide security of citizens of the southeast [of Ukraine] and make the armed groups retreat,” Zhirinovsky is confident.
In his view, Belarus should be involved, too. It could send troops to Ukraine's northwest regions and help block Kyiv's forces that began an unhidden terror operation.
“The operation, which the Kyiv authorities call counter-terrorism, is being carried out to leave Ukraine united under the Nazi regime, make it a NATO member and then use subversive squads to disturb our western regions – Kuban, Voronezh, Rostov, Kursk and Belgorod,” the politician thinks.
Belarus began a series of combat readiness tests of the Armed Forces in January 2014 on the order of Lukashenka. The first phase of the combat readiness tests verified the readiness of control bodies and military units of the Belarusian part of the regional air defense system as well as territorial defense control bodies and units. The second phase began with tests to verify the readiness of the entire Belarusian-Russian regional air defense system.
Most of the exercises, which involve Russian servicemen, are held close to the Ukrainian border.
