Vladimir Putin forms elite 'spec ops force' to intervene in Belarus if protests 'get out of control'

Vladimir Putin has formed an elite special operation force ready to intervene in Belarus if 'extremist elements' are judged to have 'crossed the line' .

The Russian President said he acted after a conversation with Alexander Lukashenko, in which the incumbent president of Belarus asked if Russia would stand by its commitments to defend his country.

'I said that Russia will fulfill all its obligations,' Putin said from Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014 after the overthrow of the pro-Russian government.
