Head of the SBU chief`s staff Oleksandr Tkachuk has said the SBU Security Service of Ukraine has requested that their Belarusian counterparts explain what Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko had meant by speaking about ”militant camps” established in Ukraine, according to the political news online newspaper Ukrayinska Pravda.
”As for the statements that there are certain camps established in Ukrainian territory, our agency has sent an official request and we expect additional information from our colleagues. For now, we have no detailed information except what was said by the president of Belarus,” Tkachuk said at a briefing on Wednesday.
Earlier, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko announced the militants who had been preparing to stage an armed provocation had been apprehended in Belarus.
”By the way, one of the camps was located near Bobruisk and Osipovichi. The other camps are located in Ukraine. I think some of them are located in Lithuania or Poland. I am not sure exactly but somewhere over there,” Lukashenko said.
