Belarusian security, military agencies urged to stay vigilant

MINSK, 27 February (BelTA) – We need to ensure the strictest discipline in the military units and a high level of border security, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with the country's law enforcers on 27 February, BelTA has learned.

In the run-up to his three-day state visit to China, Aleksandr Lukashenko met with heads of military and security agencies to discuss the situation inside and outside the country.

“In the light of internal and, above all, external developments, I would like to hear your opinion on the internal political and military situation around Belarus. Once again, I would like to emphasize and draw your attention to the need to ensure the strictest discipline in the military units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the KGB. The toughest discipline! Everyone should do their own thing," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.

"We have a considerable number of people in uniform. Everyone is armed. These people are geared to defend their Fatherland. We need to use it. Discipline and performance of their duties. Especially on the border. When I talk about the border, you should understand that this is not solely the domain of Mr Lappo [Chairman of the State Border Committee Anatoly Lappo]. This is the domain of the police, the KGB, the military. We all need to keep our guard on in terms of the border security and be able to identify even the smallest manifestation of aggressiveness against our state in order to take appropriate response measures," the president demanded. “They use any opportunity to destabilize the situation in Belarus. They will not stop. I want you to fulfill these demands. Everything else is on me."
