Belarusian dictator Oleksandr Lukashenko announced that the S-400 and Iskander complexes handed over by Russia were put on combat duty.
As reported “Military“, Lukashenko said at the press conference following the negotiations with the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.
According to him, the army of Belarus has already put the Russian anti-aircraft complex S-400 and operational-tactical missile complex “Iskander” on combat duty.
“Belarus has put the S-400 and Iskander complexes handed over by Russia on combat duty,” Lukashenko said.
Negotiations between Lukashenka and Putin
On December 19, Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Minsk for the first time in several years to meet with Alexander Lukashenko.
Analysts of the Institute for the Study of War said that this is probably Putin’s attempt to create informational conditions for a new stage of the war against Ukraine. In addition, the possibility of an attack on the part of Belarus was not ruled out.
In turn, the Secretary of the National Security Council Oleksiy Danilov believed that during his visit Putin pressured Lukashenko to allow him to send Belarusian troops to war against Ukraine, but Minsk does not want to fight.
The “Belarusian Gayun” monitoring group reported that at 00:59 (23:59 Kyiv time) Putin’s plane took off from Minsk National Airport.
ISW analysts believe that direct participation of Belarus in the war against Ukraine is unlikely. Oleksandr Lukashenko, most likely, refused the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, further integration concessions.
