BERLIN, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Germany experts further worsening of relations with Belarus after it executed two men convicted of carrying out a terror act in the Minsk subway last year, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.
The executions will aggravate “enough complicated relations” with Belarus, he said.
Earlier, Berlin has already repeatedly denounced death sentences.
Dmitry Konovalov, the main perpetrator of the deadly explosion last April, was executed on March 17. His accomplice, Vladislav Kovalyov, was executed a day earlier. His mother received an official notification about her son’s execution from the Supreme Court dated March 16.
Konovalov acknowledged his guilt, but Kovalyov did not plead guilty and insisted he did not participate.
The terrorist act in the Minsk subway killed 15 people and injured over two hundred.
