Russia rules out its interference in Belarus unrest

Politics A- A A+

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has dismissed as groundless attempts to find a "Russian connection" to the unrest in Belarus, reports citing TASS.

"We expect that professional cooperation by the investigative committees, prosecutor generals’ offices and other agencies of the two countries will help clear up the situation involving the detention of 33 Russian citizens as soon as possible. It is important to stress that the attempts to find a ‘Russian connection’ to the latest unrest in Belarus are groundless," Zakharova told a news briefing. "There have been signs pointing in a different direction."

Related evidence, she said, has been shared with the Belarusian side and is available to the public at large.

Attempts to spoil relations between Russia and Belarus are bound to fail, Maria Zakharova continued. "Russia has been and will remain a reliable ally and friend of Belarus and the fraternal Belarusian nation. We are confident that any attempts to cause a rift between us are bound to fail," she said.
