TASS: the military attaché of Ukraine was handed a note of protest over the violation of the Belarusian border
The military attaché of Ukraine was handed a note of protest over the violation of the Belarusian state border. This is reported by TASS with reference to the message of the Ministry of Defense of Belarus.
“The military attaché was informed that the Ukrainian side avoids dialogue to resolve controversial issues both in terms of international military cooperation and arms control, which is very alarming “, – noted in the message of the security department. The Defense Ministry emphasizes that the military attaché of Ukraine was given facts testifying to the evasion of this country from “fulfilling obligations within the framework of regional confidence and security measures.”
In addition, the Belarusian security forces did not like the holding of exercises of units of the Ukrainian armed forces near the state border. They, as noted in the Ministry of Defense, took place against the background of “accusatory rhetoric against Belarus.” Minsk stressed that “the totality of these facts may indicate the possibility of a security threat” to Belarus in the south kilometers. According to the Belarusian side, this happened on Saturday, December 4, near the Novaya Rudnya checkpoint of the Mozyr border guard detachment. The State Border Committee of Belarus immediately informed the Ukrainian colleagues about this. Those, in turn, stated that this information “is not true”.
