On April 18, the FSB released an operative video footage of the arrest of lawyer Yuri Zenkovich and political scientist Alexander Feduta, who are suspected of preparing a military coup in Belarus and an attempt on the life of the president of the republic, Alexander Lukashenko.

One of the meetings between Zenkovich and Feduta took place in a tavern on the Garden Ring in Moscow. The coup, planned for May 9, was going to involve Ukrainian nationalists.

“Yesterday in Warsaw I had a call from one of our friends:“ Listen, Yuras, what’s there, what contacts in Ukraine have you left? I’m going there, I should go through these contacts, ”Zenkovich said in the video.

From the conversation of the suspects, it follows that the president of Belarus and other high-ranking officials of the republic were planned to be killed or sent to a concentration camp. The lawyer was going to control the courts and the Ministry of Justice of the republic. In addition, the conspirators were going to plunder Lukashenka’s property.

On April 17, Lukashenko announced the arrest of a group that was planning an attempt on the life of him and his children. The President noted that the American special services were involved in this.

Zenkovich and Feduta, the former press secretary of the Belarusian leader, were detained in Moscow. At the moment, the detainees are making confessions. They are suspected of planning a military coup in Belarus and an attempt on the life of the President of Belarus. It is noted that a criminal case under the article on an attempt to seize power was initiated for the first time in the history of Belarus.

Earlier that day, the head of the investigative department of the Belarusian KGB, Konstantin Bychek, said that Zenkovich was connected with the US special services and tried to recruit military men who were ready to take part in the overthrow of the Belarusian government for money. Yuri Zenkovich opposed the Belarusian authorities. The lawyer was a member of the Belarusian Popular Front party. Zenkovich left for the United States in the mid-2000s, where he began to pursue a legal career.
