On the evening of October 8, 2022, Ambassador of Ukraine in Minsk Ihor Kyzym was invited to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus and handed a diplomatic note.
In the note, the Belarusian side claimed that Ukraine is allegedly planning an attack on the territory of Belarus.
This information does not correspond to reality. We categorically reject yet another insinuation of the Belarusian regime. We do not rule out that the handing over of the diplomatic note may be part of the plan of the Russian Federation to carry out a provocation to further accuse Ukraine.
We call on the Belarusian people not to succumb to provocations.
Ukraine has never encroached on foreign territories. We strictly adhere to the fundamental norms and principles of international law and the UN Charter.
The authorities in Belarus should stop following the whims of the Kremlin and immediately stop supporting Russia in its aggression against Ukraine.
