Russia and Belarus set up shield against NATO-Pavel Borodin

MOSCOW, October 8 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Belarus will sign an agreement on November 2 to set up a joint regional air defense system, the state secretary of the Union State said on Wednesday.
The Supreme State Council of the Russia-Belarus Union State will hold a meeting in Moscow on November 2.
Asked if an agreement would be signed then on a regional air defense system, Pavel Borodin, Secretary of State of the Union State, said: "I have no doubt of that."
He added that the treaty was vital in the context of NATO's ongoing eastward expansion.
"Militarily speaking, it is virtually a shield against NATO," Borodin said.
