Lukashenka tasks KGB: ‘Belarus has no place for militants fighting in Ukraine’


In Belarus there should be no place for people fighting in Ukraine, president Alyaksandr Lukashenka said when discussing the protection of the state border on Thursday.

“I see that some so-called brave people, militants who fought in Donbas, are posing with weapons in Minsk! You are well aware of Belarus’ attitude to such warriors. You must immediately sort the things out! There should not be any show-offs and militants in the country!” Lukashenka ordered the police and the KGB.

It is to be recalled that photos of a resident of Minsk who fought for the unrecognised Donetsk repuplic have recently been posted on web. In 2002-2004 the man reportedly did his military service in the 503d separate reconnaissance battalion in Belarus.
