Under diplomatic cover, 12 people carried out espionage activities in Belarus. This was announced on Thursday, March 24, by President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.

“There are enough of them. From these international spies… A whole bunch, even in our Ukraine there. We saw them – 12 people. Ride, see. No, it was necessary to spy, and also to mischief in Belarus. Well, it’s been thrown out now. You know, these Ukrainian “undercovers” who were under diplomatic cover,” BelTA quotes him as saying.

A day earlier, Anatoly Glaz, spokesman for the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, said that the number of Ukrainian diplomats in the republic would be reduced to five. He noted that the activities of a number of employees of the Ukrainian diplomatic missions in Belarus were incompatible with the diplomatic status

Glaz stressed that the situation had reached the point where “the Ukrainian authorities began to interfere in the internal affairs of Belarus.”

The day before, it became known that the residency of Ukraine, which operated in the country under the cover of the Ukrainian embassy in Belarus, was liquidated in Belarus.

According to the State Security Committee of the republic, employees of the diplomatic department carried out intelligence, attempting to create a network of informers from among Belarusian citizens, and also personally collected intelligence information, including in relation to military facilities of the republic.

Prior to that, on March 17, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Belarus opened a criminal case against Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine. In social networks, he published a video in which he proposed to arrange a “rail war” against Russia and Belarus. Arestovich also appealed to the inhabitants of Belarus with a call to commit sabotage on the railway tracks along which Russian forces pass.
