Lukashenko threatens to attack Kyiv with the Polonaise missile complex
The self-proclaimed president of the Republic of Belarus, Oleksandr Lukashenko, said that he had given the order to target government buildings in Kyiv.
The dictator announced this during a speech on the occasion of the country's Independence Day .
Lukashenko made it clear that he plans to use the Polonaise missile systems.
According to him, the reason for the attack on Ukraine could be an attack on Belarusian facilities: the Mozyr Refinery and the Lunynets airfield (since the first days of the invasion of the Russian Federation, it has been actively used by Russian aviation for shelling Ukraine).
" A little less than a month ago, I gave the order to the units of the Armed Forces to target, as it is now fashionable to say, the decision-making centers in your capitals... I have been preparing for this for a long time, remember, I told you all the time - "Polonese"... You are completely under the impact of these missiles. And I will not look at who is sitting there in offices or palaces ," the Belarusian dictator voiced his threats.
Lukashenko also accused Ukraine of trying to attack Belarus. Such an attempt seems to have been "three days ago". However, according to the version of the self-proclaimed leader of the Belarusians, the missile was shot down by the Pantsir.
Lukashenko said that "not a single soldier of Belarus" is fighting against Ukraine. However, earlier he allowed himself to say that Belarus will have to fight for Western Ukraine. Before the invasion of the Russian Federation, Lukashenko declared that he and Putin would do everything so that "Ukraine would be ours" and claimed that the war would last only a few days.
Back in 2017, the author of the "Military" Mariner drew attention to the threats to Ukraine that arise as a result of the Belarusian missile program . In recent years, Belarus, in cooperation with China, has created the Polonaise missile complex.
- caliber 301 mm
- firing range of the A200 missile - 200 km (A300 - 290 km )
- guidance system (inertial + GPS)
- shooting accuracy of KVO 15-30 m (according to various data)
- chassis MZKT-7930 8X8
Composition of the complex:
- 4 launchers (8 launch containers each), on MZKT-7930 8X8 chassis
- 4 transport and charging machines, on the MZKT-7930 8X8 chassis
- Battery command post, on the MAZ-6317 chassis
- Another security technique
In 2016, the Polonaise complex passed state tests and was adopted by the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus. It is currently in service with the 336th rocket artillery brigade (Osypovichi).
In 2017, the Belarusian military conducted tests of the Polonaise complex with Chinese A300 missiles - with a firing range of 290 km. Such a range allows you to use "Polonaise" at operational-tactical depth of application.
