MINSK, 8 February (BelTA) – More than $6 billion was spent on the failed coup attempt in Belarus, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a session of the Security Council on 8 February, BelTA has learned.

“They planned a color revolution in the center of Europe but failed. American experts and political scientists called it ‘an unsuccessful attempt at an unconstitutional coup'. They invested huge money in this ‘unsuccessful attempt'. According to our estimates (what we could track) the sum was more than $6 billion. This is exorbitant for Belarus," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

“Those who have failed to work off this money will try to destabilize the situation again. By the way, this is what they're doing now."
