"The deliveries of S-300PMU1 battalions from Russia will be finalized this year. Three of them have been already deployed in Belarus, while the fourth is on its way," Dvigalev told reporters following a meeting of the CIS coordination committee on air defense issues.

The next big evolutionary step in the S-300 series air defense missile system was the introduction of a new export variant the S-300PMU1/SA-10D, in 1993.

The S-300PMU1 air defense missile system can simultaneously engage up to 36 air targets by 72 missiles. The data exchange between grouping combat assets us carried out via telecoded communication lines in the radio or wire operating mode. The command and control assets and air defense missile systems can be separated to a distance of up to 35 km when using repeater stations and up to 100 km when using wire communications and radio-relay stations.

According to Dvigalev, Belarus has received the first four Yak-130 combat trainers from Russia and is expecting the arrival of four more by the end of the year.

Moscow and Minsk signed an agreement on joint protection of the Russia-Belarus Union State airspace and the creation of a unified regional air defense network in February 2009.
