“They challenge us. I must tell you that three days ago, maybe a little more, there was an attempt to hit military installations on Belarusian territory, from the territory of Ukraine,” Lukashenko said, as reported by the Athens News Agency.
“But, God willing, Pantsir anti-aircraft systems managed to intercept all missiles fired by Ukrainian armed forces“, he continued
The Belarusian president added that his country does not want war with Ukraine but will fight if its territory is invaded.
