MINSK, March 15, /ITAR-TASS/. The Belarusian Foreign Ministry has denied Polish media reports that Poland has detained two Belarusian diplomats suspected of spying for Russia.

The second suspect who turned out to be the military attachй of the Belarusian embassy in Poland was allegedly forced to leave the country a week ago.
