Ambassador of Ukraine to Belarus Ihor Kyzym informed that Belarus’ media has recently begun to spread information about Ukraine's alleged attack on the Republic of Belarus back in February.
Mr. Kyzym wrote about this on his Facebook page.
“Fake news with distorted headlines, decontextualized and dubious information, which utterly distort the reality, are spread in Belarus’ media space. It seems like these news are pushed down by the interested parties and are based on what the Russian government wants to hear rather than on true and objective information from the relevant Belarusian agencies. Otherwise it is difficult to explain why such information became available to the public on the 20th day of war, manipulating that Ukraine was planning to attack Belarus on 23-24 February and from four different positions?", - said the Ambassador.
Kyzym mentioned that "Russian planes oftenly take off from the territory of Belarus (Luninets, Baranovichi, Lida airfields) and strike Ukrainian cities Zhytomyr, Chernihiv, Kyiv and other regions of Ukraine."
"The activity of Russian planes in Belarus has been officially recorded and reported to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense of Belarus", - the Ambassador said.
Earlier, the Belarus’ opposition newspaper Nasha Niva reported that the Belarus’ government remains silent on the true reasons for casualties of the Belarusian citizens in Ukraine. The two Belarus’ truck drivers were killed on the 10th March in Korosten, Zhytomyr region, as a result of an airstrike by the Russian army.
Belarus and the Black Sea remain to be the two main platforms for Russia military to continue missile strikes at Ukraine cities, said Oleksandr Gruzevych, Brigadier General, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Ground Forces Command.
