  • 6

Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko hosted a meeting on 2 May to discuss the current issues related to the country’s border security and measures needed to protect it.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, the situation around Belarus remains difficult. NATO is building up its military presence near the borders and there are provocations on the border.

“We could not postpone this meeting: the situation forces us to respond to the recent developments. The government and the law enforcement agencies have been instructed to work out measures on the border to prevent all kinds of infiltrators from entering Belarus. Such cases have been on the rise lately. Therefore, I would like to hear comprehensive proposals on counter measures,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

According to Chairman of the State Security Committee Ivan Tertel, based on the information coming from intelligence and other units, there are forecasts of a significant aggravation of the operational situation around Belarus.
