The Russian foreign intelligence service has data on the preparation of a high-profile provocation in Belarus

Belarus and Russia

This was stated by the Director Of the foreign intelligence service Sergey Naryshkin.

“According to available data, among the extremist opponents of the current Belarusian authorities currently hiding abroad, a plan is being hatched for a resonant provocation, during which one of the authoritative clergy of the Russian Orthodox Church would be arrested or even injured or killed,” Naryshkin said. “This is a calculation that this will significantly increase anti-government sentiment among Catholics and encourage them to participate more actively in street protests,” he said.
