The Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine informs that the so-called “Wagner's Group in Belarus” special information operation is of Russian origin.
The objectives of the operation are:
Destabilization of the situation in Belarus on the eve of and during the presidential election.
Accusing Ukrainian special services of organizing and conducting an operation on the territory of Belarus and, as a result, involving Ukraine in an international scandal and undermining its international prestige.
Discrediting the leadership of the State of Ukraine in order to downgrade the government on the eve of local elections.
We draw the attention of the civil society and mass media of Ukraine to be careful with the content created by Russian secret services, which has an openly anti-Ukrainian character and harms the national security of our State.
