KGB projects significant escalation of situation around Belarus

MINSK, 2 May (BelTA) - The State Security Committee (KGB) projects a significant escalation of the situation along the perimeter of Belarus, KGB Chairman Ivan Tertel told reporters following a meeting with the president, BelTA has learned.

"Our president keeps his finger on the pulse of all the processes that are taking place in this very difficult operational situation. Security is the number one priority today," Ivan Tertel emphasized.

"We predict a significant escalation of the situation along the perimeter of our country. This is due, firstly, to the hostilities in the southern direction. Everything is connected with this now. Secondly, attempts to destabilize the situation inside our country do not stop. These attempts are undertaken, first of all, by the centers abroad that plan this activity with the support of direct curators, including from among foreign special services. A number of such serious events are planned on our territory. Sponsors do not offer another way out for those who have already fallen into their clutches. The sponsors are foreign interested parties, both individuals and special services and other organizations. Given these conditions, the head of state wanted us to craft the proposals on how we respond to all these challenges," the KGB head said.

Ivan Tertel promised that in the next week and a half, new results of the "quiet work" carried out by the KGB will be made public. "Unfortunately, not all of our citizens are yet aware of the dangers around them, around their families. Therefore, we will show the real materials, real detentions, counterintelligence work, the work of the units for the protection of the constitutional order that prevent terrorist attacks. We will make this information public so that our people understand what we are dealing with," he said.

At the instruction of the head of state, a number of measures will also be taken to step up counterintelligence measures "in order to work proactively, to prevent things that we see in neighboring regions from happening here," the head of the KGB explained.

"Security of people, our citizens, families is the number one priority for the head of state. Accordingly, we report to him on the implementation of the instructions given by the president in connection with this difficult situation. But I would like to emphasize that the president has his finger on the pulse of all the processes. Our citizens should keep their guards up. But they can be confident that everything necessary is being done," Ivan Tertel emphasized.
