Belarussian gunners exercise near the border with Poland

Minsk, Mar 21 (Prensa Latina) The division of the 115th Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment of the Belarusian army conducts tactical exercises at the Brest test range near the border with Poland, the Belarusian Defense Ministry reported.

According to the ministry, the division moved to a new position area, “returned to combat position, went into combat service and worked on control targets,” BelTA news agency noted.

All tasks of anti-aircraft gunners are solved in conditions as close to combat as possible, taking into account the experience of anti-aircraft defense,” the military department noted.

It also reported that during the exercises, in cooperation with the electronic warfare unit, the division’s personnel “counter the use of drones, as well as the actions of sabotage and reconnaissance groups of a simulated enemy.”

Belarussian Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin stated at the end of February that the country’s Armed Forces registered five to nine sorties of reconnaissance aircraft from Western countries along the borders of the Slavic nation every day.

According to the head of the department, the activation of the intelligence services is one of the indicators that the West “wants to plan something against Belarus.”
