Detention of Russians Minsk


Lukashenko on the detention of 33 Russians: I don't care what Russia thinks and demands

Lukashenko commented on Russia's demands to release the Russians detained in Minsk.

After voting in the presidential elections in Belarus, the current leader of the country, Alexander Lukashenko, announced that Russia’s demands for the release of 33 citizens of the Russian Federation detained in Minsk accused of extremism (according to the authorities, they are members of the PMC “Wagner”), he was absolutely not interested , since he has completely different information on this matter.

“President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that he agreed with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to sort out the arrested Russians. The Belarusian leader also assured that he does not care whether the situation with the detention of the Russians was provoked by a "third country", he will work "after the fact." The presidential elections are now taking place in Belarus. A large number of Belarusians took part in the elections ahead of schedule - almost 42% of voters ", - about it сообщает edition "News Inform".

The reason for such a statement was the information that appeared that the detention of Russian citizens on the territory of Belarus was provoked by the West and Ukraine, while Lukashenka had previously reported that he had information about why the detained Russians arrived in Belarus, however, did not disclose this publicly, which caused mistrust in the words of the Belarusian leader.

It should be clarified that the Belarusian authorities began to gather special military units into the capital, apparently fearing serious protests.
