BREST OBLAST, 21 October (BelTA) – Belarusian unmanned aerial vehicles have earned a good reputation and the demand for them is already high. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement in front of reporters as he visited the combined-arms military training area Obuz-Lesnovsky in Brest Oblast, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “Our ability to defend ourselves is probably greater today than the ability to carry out strikes.”
The president stressed that the Belarusian army is primarily geared towards defending its territory instead of attacking, this is why the appropriate weapon systems are being developed. “Of course, we are the world leaders in this regard and it is as important as having drones capable of delivering strikes against certain targets. A dozen of such green vehicles can fully protect the southern border of our country with Ukraine from drones and other aerial targets,” he noted.
Aleksandr Lukashenko watched combat capabilities of Belarusian drones in action in the military training area. “All the systems are improved and work quite well. All of them hit targets. It is good. We will continue working. We have something to work on. But the demand for them is already high. I don't mean Ukraine. Before Ukraine,” he stressed.
