The Belarusian leader noted that together with the prosecutors general of these two countries, it is necessary to investigate the case of 33 men detained in a boarding house near Minsk. The Belarusian authorities consider them to be the fighters of the Wagner PMC, who have arrived to destabilize. At the same time, the detainees were found to have passports of Russia and Ukraine.
Before that, Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon said that Lukashenka allegedly agreed to hand over some of the detainees to Ukraine. They, according to preliminary data, could take part in the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine.
