These samples, as a bureaucrat, show: no configurations are no health hazards Belarusians — the same way.
"We monitor, monitoring, right up to the air. Real danger now no no. Nobody gives us another disk imaging — nor Ukraine has confirmed that there is any real threat or our services that operate in emergency mode.
We are constantly on the well-established observation posts. Also in positions where we calculate the probability of possible threats, even under the most adverse factors. But we have been developing for 3 hours specific forecasting models that demonstrate: while no real danger. But conducting enhanced monitoring. To do this, have the power and money.
