President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that he was very impressed by the Zapad-2021 exercise in general. He told reporters about this while visiting the Obuz-Lesnovsky training ground near Baranovichi during the military exercises, BelTA has learned.
“I was very impressed by the teaching as a whole,” the Belarusian leader emphasized.
However, he noted that now we still need to look deeply, evaluate how accurately the shooting was performed. “They are preparing a report for me, – said the President. – They will report to me. But what I saw closer, from my own experience, in my opinion, there are no targets left.”
Alexander Lukashenko also praised the military personnel from Russia and Kazakhstan at the training. “Brilliant! And Kazakhstanis are our fellows for coming. Let a small number here. But the spirit itself is important,” he said.
The President also spoke about many interesting and memorable exercises for him, when he himself, in Soviet times, participated in similar military maneuvers and exercises.
