MINSK, August 14. /TASS/. Belarusian security agencies are conducting special investigative activities after uncovering a channel for recruiting to Ukrainian nationalist groups to participate in military actions in Donbas, press secretary of the Belarusian State Border Committee Alexander Tischenko told TASS on Friday.
After confirming that the recruiting channel was uncovered, Tischenko said the problem exists with young Belarusians trying to enter Ukraine to engage in illegal activities. For example, the press secretary said that recently a couple contacted law enforcement agencies saying that their son left them a note about "going to war". "We managed to promptly identify this citizen and return him to his parents. After an explanatory conversation, he became more aware of the real situation [in Ukraine]," Tischenko said.
Belarusian television reported on August 13 that a channel of recruiting mercenaries was uncovered by the country’s State Security Committee with the help of Interior Ministry and State Border Committee. According to media reports, "[people] were recruited through social networks — mostly young radicals, including those with mental illness, unemployed and convicts, as well as among [football] fans and little-known pro-Nazi groups."
The media also reported that several dozen Belarusian citizens are currently fighting in Ukraine’s east in the Right Sector organization banned in Russia, in "Donbas", "Azov" and "Aidar" battalions.
