Belarusian strongman Alyaksandr Lukashenka says a Ukrainian-Russian national and associates have been arrested for organizing a drone attack on a Russian military cargo plane at an airbase near Minsk in late February. Lukashenka said the men acted “under command of Ukraine’s Security Service and the CIA.” He gave no evidence to back up his claim. It was Lukashenka’s first comment on the incident at the Machulishchy base. Minsk had previously denied media reports about the attack. The Belarusian anti-government group BYPOL said last week that Belarusian guerillas carried out the attack and “are now safe, outside the country.”
