The President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, signed a decree suspending his country's participation in the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces (CFE), which restricts the movement of military troops and weapons across the European continent.

The decree, signed on May 24, was published today in the Official Gazette of the former Soviet republic, a close ally of Moscow, which borders both Russia and Ukraine.

In 2007, Russia unilaterally suspended participation in the Treaty on Conventional Forces in Europe, which limited manpower and equipment - tanks, aircraft, artillery from the Atlantic to the Urals and provided for mutual exchange of information and inspections. Russia has participated in the Agreement since 1990.
