First Deputy Chief of General Staff of the Belarusian Armed Forces Igor Korol stated on Sunday that Belarus’ armed forces will soon receive the second battalion set of BTR-82A armored personnel carriers from Russia.
"We have received one battalion set of BTR-82A, which came in service in the 120th mechanized brigade. The second battalion set of these state-of-the-art vehicles will reach Belarus within a month. It will go to the 6th mechanized brigade," he said in an interview with the STV television channel.
According to Korol, the country’s army will receive Russian-made multi-purpose combat vehicles by mid-2022.
The first batch of Russian BTR-82A combat vehicles were delivered to Belarus in late September.
Such vehicles are used in the Azerbaijani and Kazakh armies.
