Interior Ministry’s Special Forces are involved in the “situation on the border,” an article of the newspaper “On Guard” reports.

The commander of the special forces brigade, Colonel Dzmitry Miksha, has spoken about the cooperation with the border guards, which, according to Miksha, had taken place before.

“The situation with dozens of migrants near the border requires a quick response and more forces. This is primarily important for the internal security of the state and the peace of mind of the citizens,” Miksha was quoted by the “On Guard” media as saying.

Earlier, there were reports in social feeds about the soldiers of the military unit 32-14, who were sent to the border and given the border guard uniform.

Last year, special forces of the Interior Ministry took an active part in the suppression of peaceful protests.
