MINSK, 7 May (BelTA) – Belarus continues improving matters concerning the combat training of army units. State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich made the statement on the air of the TV channel Belarus One, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Volfovich said: “Taking into account the evolving military and political situation, primarily the situation around the Republic of Belarus, we continue improving matters concerning the combat readiness of our Armed Forces. The most efficient method is snap inspections, which proceed in conditions that resemble actual combat as much as possible. In accordance with the order of the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, forces and assets able to use tactical nuclear munitions will be inspected. Those are primarily operational-tactical missile systems Iskander and frontline attack aircraft Su-25.”

A system designed to handle nuclear weapon use signals has been deployed for the sake of managing the forces and assets. “This inspection has been organized in view of the events our colleagues from the Russian Federation are implementing to apply non-strategic nuclear munitions. The Belarusian inspection has been synced with the Russian one,” the state secretary noted. “This inspection is supposed to verify the ability of our units to deliver special munitions to army units, load them into launch vehicles, and attach them to Su-25 attack aircraft. Squadrons of Iskander missile systems and tactical missile systems Polonez will clandestinely move to designated deployment areas where they will practice preparation, planning, and the use of the special munitions. Air Force units will disperse across base airfields and prepare the Su-25 attack aircraft for using this kind of ordnance.”

Practical verification of the ability of Belarusian army personnel to use this kind of weapons should be the key result of the snap inspection, Aleksandr Volfovich stressed. “These measures are purely defensive and do not project threats to any country,” the state secretary noted. “The organization of combat mobilization readiness inspections with command and control bodies and army units will continue in the future.”
