Lukashenka wants to deploy Russian Iskander missile systems in Polish and Ukrainian directions

Alyaksandr Lukashenka recently said in an interview with the magazine “National Defense” that he wants to deploy several divisions of the Russian “Iskander” missile systems in the western and southern directions (that is, against Poland and Ukraine).

According to BelTA, Lukashenka noted that Belarus expects to receive Russian Iskander operational-tactical missile systems.

“I need several divisions in the west, in the south, let them stay. That’s 500 kilometers, our Polonez is up to 300,” he said. “We see where we have to strike with a rocket, to use Tochka and Buk MB. Mobility is very important now, so we’ve created MZKT vehicles and armored cars with eight or nine crew members, like APCs. So don’t worry, we will play our part here. You don’t even have to worry about that.”
