      Space is needed for the safe fall of fragments, accelerators, etc. This should not fall on cities and civilians. There is no such landfill in Belarus.

            Ukrainians at their last air defense exercises in 2001 managed to bring down a Tu-154 civilian plane by a two-hundred-year-old. Since then, they have not conducted such exercises.
            The dimensions of the firing range did not ensure the safety of firing of such air defense systems. The necessary measures to free up airspace were not taken by the shooting organizers: flights were prohibited only within a radius of 50 km, although the "passport" range of target destruction by the S-200V complex was 255 km, and the technical range of a 5V28 / 5V28M missile was about 300 km

          Such exercises are clearly not against ISIS, but against someone else.
