For the foreseeable Russia does not mind making arms with Belarus
Belarus demonstrates a growing interest to the newest Russian arms. At the military exhibition MILEX-2007 held in Minsk, Belarus the correspondent of PravdaRu asked Deputy General Director on Strategic Development of Military-Industrial Company Andrey Abramchuk about the perspectives of mutual cooperation.
Recently similar exhibition IDET-2007 took place in the Czech town of Brno. Neither Rosoboronexport, nor any other Russian company participated in that exhibition. According to Mr. Abramchuk A.I. this is because the exhibition in Czech Republic is focused more on the countries of central Europe, the countries which nearly all joined NATO. “We do not have any significant interest in that region at the moment. The exhibition in Belarus is focused more on the countries where there are consumers of our hardware. Here we have quite productive contacts which have been actively supported recently. In this region there is interest to the newest Russian made and CIS made machinery and hardware.” - he stated.
Dmitry Peskov, an official spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, was discharged from hospital.
"Yes, that's true," Peskov told reporters.
About 1,600 fighters of private military company (PMC) Wagner left the war zone in western Libya, Anadolu agency reports with reference to Mohammed Kununu, a representative of Libyan government forces.
According to him, PMC employees involved in the Libyan conflict on the side of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar departed from Beni Walid airport near Tripoli on board two military transport aircraft. Their destination remains unknown.
