Kasinsky noted that this is an effective means of defeating various types of aerial targets, both high-speed and low-speed, at a fairly wide range of altitudes.

Background: On 22 December, Alexander Lukashenko, the self-proclaimed President of Belarus, convened a meeting with the military and security forces to discuss the recent unannounced inspection of the army's combat readiness and re-deployment of some equipment closer to the border with Ukraine.
