Translator is himself a military officer part of the Russian delegation. May be an ethnic Tajik and thus native Persian-speaker. Even if he isn't, there are non-immigrant citizens in the Russian Federation who are native speakers of Iranian languages (Tajiks, Ossetians).

Russia is culturally speaking definitely closer to us than the west.

That's a loitering munition. Behind it, you can see a truck carrying unknowm number of loitering munitions. I would call it a multiple launch loitering munition system MLMS. Something like MLRS. That's just great.

These loitering munitions use mini turbofan engines to loiter and wait for their target to appear.
Hmm, nice idea. Maybe it could seal greater areas in front of airplanes or CMs or guided bombs.
