The chairman of the State Security Committee of Belarus Ivan Tertel said that “huge consignments of weapons” were imported from the territory of Ukraine into the republic, which could be used by terrorists to destabilize the situation.
“Terrorist acts were planned both against the facilities of government departments and against individual officials, including with the threat of the death of a large number of the population. Unfortunately, this is true, this is the reality in which we currently live. And we are taking appropriate measures”, – Tertel said in an interview with the state television of Belarus.
According to him, earlier, “transit terrorism” was observed on the territory of Belarus, but from the second half of 2020, “a sharp intensification of the terrorist threat against the country” was recorded. Tertel clarified that the uncovered terrorist groups were located in Western Europe, Poland, and Ukraine.U.S. National Guard soldiers to remain in the Capitol until May 23
