Lukashenka announced more frequent cases of saboteurs entering Belarus
Recently, cases of penetration of saboteurs into Belarus have become more frequent. This was announced on Tuesday, May 2, by President of the Republic Alexander Lukashenko during a meeting on security and law and order, as well as measures to protect the state border of the country.
He noted that the situation around Belarus remains difficult, transmits BelTA agency. NATO’s military potential is being built up near the borders of the republic, and provocations are taking place on the border.
“We could not postpone this meeting: the situation forces us to react to the situation that is developing,” Lukashenka said. The Belarusian leader recalled that the government and the security bloc were instructed to prepare “serious measures on the border” to prevent saboteurs from entering Belarusian territory. “Therefore, I would like to hear comprehensive proposals for counteraction,” Lukashenka concluded.
As Ivan Tertel, chairman of the Belarusian State Security Committee, reported during the meeting, a significant aggravation of the operational situation that is developing around Belarus is predicted. Such forecasts were made on the basis of data received from intelligence and other units.
In March, the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus announced that the department was creating new units. In particular, among them will be those focused on fight against sabotage and reconnaissance groups. He pointed out that such units, ready to advance to any point of the country and fulfill the task assigned to them, are planned to be created throughout the republic.
