Planned attacks of May 9th – terrorist suspects arrested in Belarus

Around May 9, several people are said to have prepared terrorist attacks and acts of sabotage in Belarus. Now the Belarusian secret service is reporting the arrest of suspects.

Belarus has arrested “a certain number of people” who were preparing terrorist attacks in connection with May 9th. This was stated by the head of the Belarusian secret service KGB Ivan Tertel, how BelTA reported. He said:

“These were attempts to organize terrorist attacks on our territory.

And we know the Special Services are behind it.

Tertel specified that according to the version of the Belarusian special services, the attacks were specifically timed for Victory Day. He did not give any further details. Further details are expected to be announced on Wednesday.

The Belarusian KGB has repeatedly reported on preventing terrorist attacks in the country since the start of the Russian special operation. In March, the agency reported the killing of an armed foreigner in Grodno who, according to intelligence information, was preparing for a terrorist attack. It was not specified which country the killed man came from. The KGB called him “Mr. L.”.

The man resisted arrest with an assault rifle and grenades. After the incident, investigators opened a criminal case.

On May 2, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko stated that saboteurs are increasingly entering the republic. He instructed the government and security agencies to take measures at the border to prevent such attempts. The President also noted that the situation around Belarus remains difficult, also because of NATO’s military build-up.

Tertel then reported, citing intelligence information, that the operational situation around Belarus was expected to deteriorate.

At the end of March, Lukashenko said that in all the years of independence, the republic “has never found itself in such an alarming and threatening situation that endangers its security as it does today”. According to the Belarusian president, the country should “be drawn into a war”. Neighboring countries, especially Poland, made a lot of effort. Lukashenko has repeatedly stressed that Minsk has no intention of engaging in a military conflict.

Lukashenko arrived in Moscow on May 9 for a working visit. He, along with other heads of state, took part in the Victory Day parade on Red Square.
