As a result of the attack, one of the nine Russian anti-aircraft missiles suffered significant damage.

The Kremlin reacted to yesterday’s explosions at the Machulyshchi airfield near Minsk, as a result of which one of the 9 Russian anti-aircraft defense aircraft was significantly damaged.

As the propagandist ” RIA-Novosti” writes , the press secretary of the Russian dictator Dmytro Peskov said that he would refrain from public statements on this matter, because Minsk denied the information about the drone attack.

“No, we have nothing to say here. After all, this is information that was published, it was about Belarus, and Belarus denied it,” Peskov said.
