Two divisions of S-400 air defense missile systems are sent to Belarus from the Far East, the RF Ministry of Defense reported.
The air defense units will reach the Belarusian test sites in a combined way: by rail and at its own pace. On Friday, the divisions marched to the station in the Khabarovsk Territory and loaded the equipment onto the railway platforms.
