“There are 15 warships in the waters of the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas, including two nuclear submarines, one aircraft carrier, over 300 sea and air-based cruise missiles. In addition, reconnaissance aircraft of NATO forces make an average of 30-35 flights near the borders of Belarus per week,” Volfovich said.
