MINSK, December 19 /TASS/. Belarus will consider aggression against any member state of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) as a military threat to its own security under the country’s “On Martial Law” which parliament amended on Friday.
The document defines an act of an armed aggression against any CSTO member state as an attack on Belarus, Belarusian Defense Minister Andrey Ravkov said presenting the amendments “On Martial Law” to parliament.
For the first time ever, the law provides for a possibility of introducing a martial law if a threat of encroaching on the country’s constitutional order appears.
The Belarusian defense minister said the amendments also allowed for imposing a ban on creation of political parties and other unions and associations and suspended the operation of some media outlets except for those mentioned in the Ministry of Information list, the Belarusian Defense Ministry said.
