"As Minister of Defence nedavneshney trip Republic of Belarus Leonid Maltsev in Iran, it was covered in the media. What impactcould say has been said. It was also stated that these contacts occur within the UN Security Council resolution, no violations there can not be.

Can realize auto military use, optics. And that exists in the list of supplies from Russia by journalist Safronova we ourselves do not have: the Su-30, S-300V. How can we sell Tipo in third countries? Because, I think, the mention of the Belarusian track here faster in order to confuse the investigation. "
