The Ukrainian special operation “Polesie” on the border with Belarus is an attempt to provoke a conflict. Oleg Gaidukevich, deputy chairman of the Belarusian parliament’s commission on international affairs, stated this in an interview with Izvestia.
The deputy reacted to the message about the deployment of a special operation in the border zone and noted that Belarus never posed any threat to Ukraine. In his opinion, by its actions Kiev is trying to provoke Minsk into a conflict, as well as to find those responsible for the problems of the Ukrainian society and government.
“We, among other things, were a platform for resolving the situation in Ukraine itself. And we stay for her. And we will not succumb to any provocations, this rhetoric is ridiculous. The easiest way to find enemies is, ”added Gaidukevich.
At the same time, he supported the decision of Kiev to strengthen the border and stressed that such problems as crime and illegal arms trafficking originate precisely from the Ukrainian side.
Earlier, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine announced the beginning of the special operation “Polesie” on the border with Belarus in order to prevent the aggravation of the situation with illegal migrants. For this, the department increased the number of border guards in the field, and attracted unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and aviation to patrol the area.
