BLIMEY, the cabbages must be valuable in Belarus if the farmers need an armed guard to stop the crop being nicked.
Actually, not really. Early snowfalls across the country have farmers racing to get crops in before they are ruined.
Here, near the village of Sosnovaya, Belarusian soldiers are helping a farmer pick cabbages, a not uncommon event apparently.
Maybe that's the solution to Australia's shortage of fruit pickers - send in the troops.
