Earlier this month, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko warned of ongoing attempts to create extremist sleeper cells in his country.
Terrorists are being trained in Western countries to stage an armed invasion of Belarus, deputy head of the investigative department of the Belarusian State Security Committee Konstantin Bychek said. Speaking to Belarusian media, he pointed out that the committee is “ready for these challenges” and that “relevant measures are being taken” in line with orders by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
“Fugitive terrorists and the collective West standing behind them have no chance. We have sufficient capabilities to duly neutralize the [terror] threat,” Bychek underscored. He added that the training of terrorists is carried out on the basis of foreign special forces, including the GROM Military Unit in Poland, the Lithuanian Riflemen’s Union, and the Security Service of Ukraine.
The militants go through a baptism by fire on a battlefield in southeastern Ukraine, and shortly after, they become instructors, preparing terrorist attacks and developing plans to invade Belarusian territory, according to Bychek.
He stressed that State Security Committee knows the names of all those foreign special service officers who train the terrorists, as well as the funds that finance their activities.
