MINSK, 3 June (BelTA) – There were several scenarios for carrying out a special operation to free Belarusian citizens in Ukraine, BelTA learned from Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko on 3 June.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “It is good that the operation proceeded according to a calm scenario. We planned this operation. There were several variants and one of them was very intense. But things happened without shots fired.”
He remarked that even now all the details cannot be revealed and faces of the intelligence personnel, who had participated in the freeing of the Belarusians, cannot be revealed either. “But it is not the most important thing. The most important thing is that the men have returned to their families,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
BelTA reported earlier that the other day Aleksandr Lukashenko presented government awards to KGB officers, who had carried out a special operation in Ukraine in order to free Belarusian citizens.
