The Ministry of Defense of Belarus announced the creation of a new anti-aircraft missile regiment. It will be placed in the city of Luninets, Brest region.

According to the Ministry of Defense of the republic, the country's Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin will visit the new military unit in the near future.
