Russian special services are planning a series of terrorist attacks on critical infrastructure facilities in Belarus. They also want to cause "incidents" in the territory bordering the EU and Ukraine, the Ukrainian Defence Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate has said.

"It is known that a number of terrorist attacks - artificially provoked man-made disasters at critical infrastructure facilities - are planned to be carried out in Belarus in the near future. The place of possible 'incidents' is the territory bordering the borders of the EU and Ukraine, in particular, Hrodna and Brest regions. One of the main targets is the Belarusian nuclear power plant Astravets," the report says.

According to the intelligence, the development and implementation of the "project" is carried out by Russian special services, the Belarusian KGB is simply informed accordingly.

"Citizens of NATO countries and Ukraine, who will allegedly be disguised in Belarusian military uniforms, will be traditionally blamed for the attacks. At present, units of the Belarusian KGB, the Interior Ministry and border troops have already been put on high alert," the intelligence said.

It noted that, according to the developers of the "project", all this should accelerate the involvement of the Belarusian army in the war in Ukraine on the side of the occupiers, as well as create the public opinion necessary for the Kremlin in Belarusian society.

The intelligence service recalls that the Astravets NPP was built under the Lukashenka regime in 2020 according to a Russian project and with Russian money. International experts note that the construction took place with gross violations of technological and environmental standards. The European Parliament adopted a resolution on safety at the Astravets NPP and expressed deep concern about the start of its commercial operation. Immediately after the launch, several serious accidents occurred at the plant.
