Taking into account the large losses of the aggressor in weapons and military equipment, as well as the slightly better state and storage conditions of this equipment in the warehouses of the Armed Forces of belarus, it is not excluded that our neighbor will provide the specified weapons and military equipment for the russian aggressor, and this equipment can later be moved to Donetsk or Kherson direction of hostilities to strengthen enemy groups," Hromov said at a briefing at the Ukraine Media Center in Kyiv on Thursday.
