MINSK, January 28. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has said that his country’s intelligence services have prevented schemes "to blow up houses and streets," and also smoked out caches of ammunition and explosives.
"Clearly, there are dissenters. But also, there are lawbreakers. Many belong in this category, in particular militants and their gangs. In the meantime, the state security committee is making public evidence of how some tried to not just detonate the situation morally, but plotted attempts to detonate houses and streets in our country in addition, [they] exposed the sources of ammunition and explosives. The supply chains have been tracked and the people who carried them across the border have been detained," Lukashenko said at a conference on measures to improve legislation, the BelTA news agency reports.
Lukashenko thanked the officers of the law who quashed the attempts at destabilizing Belarus on time.
"If they had blown up at least one building, then our wackos in Minsk, who made such a fuss over violence, would have grasped a lot. I must say ‘thank you’ to the KGB and the police. Through joint efforts, they neutralized such individuals. Frankly speaking, we have some suspicion about some groups, but we are not certain we see and know everything. Still, we can’t say that we know about all of them, because it is not difficult to send people with weapons, ammunition and explosives into our country, just like anywhere else," Lukashenko noted.
