"Okay, the troops, but there are the most modern unmanned aerial vehicles." When I saw the pictures of these drones ... they are huge, like real planes, they are drone drones, against whom? And they tell us: you calm down, you do not have to No, we will hold exercises, no, we will conduct exercises, because no one will neglect the safety of states, neither Russia, nor Belarus, nor the CSTO, "said Alexander Lukashenko.
