Lukashenka’s direct speech: “The problem of rocket science was discussed with Putin. They will help us to bring the new missiles that we are creating to perfection.

We have made significant progress, but with the Russians we will quickly create a normal rocket – they have more competencies. We will do it ourselves, but this will take more than a year.

And if a smart person comes and tells us that we are doing something wrong, then by the end of this year we will have an Iskander-type missile. A very good weapon.”

Details: At a meeting with the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region of the Russian Federation Gleb Nikitin, Lukashenka also said that Belarus had bought Iskander missile systems and S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia.

Direct speech: “We agreed with Putin. We bought from you the number of these Iskanders, S-400s we needed, armed our army. Now it is a completely different army with such weapons. At the very least, these weapons can cause unacceptable damage “.

More details: As the Belarus Gayun project clarifies, S-400s and Iskanders are located at the Zyabrovka military airfield (Gomel district, Gomel region, Belarus).

At least 8 units of these anti-aircraft missile systems are based at the airfield, as well as the Pantsir air defense missile system, several types of radars and other military equipment.

“It is possible that this equipment will not be left alone, but together with the Russian crew, which will continue to operate it,” the project noted.

Recall: Russian Iskander missiles have been flying from the territory of Belarus to Ukraine since the beginning of the war.

For example, on the third day of the invasion, a rocket was launched from Belarus, which hit the Zhytomyr airport.
