"On June 26, 2017 Foreign Ministry of Belarus calls in Ukrainian Ambassador to Belarus in connection with tendentious statements in the media regarding "Slavic Union - 2017" exercise," the message reads.
It is noteworthy that Ukrainian Ambassador to Belarus earlier announced that military attaches, invited at Belarusian-Russian-Serbian exercises "Slavic Union 2017", were shown "demonstration farce" and "theatre performance". Ambassador then said that the exercise itself occurred in another place, where no observers or military attaches were invited, calling Minsk for openness at the exercise.
It is informed that Ukrainian Ambassador was told that the statements made by him regarding exercises "do not meet the high level of friendly relations between Belarus and Ukraine", are improper and contain unfounded accusations of non-compliance with confidence and security measures in the OSCE area.
Foreign Ministry of Belarus stressed that the exercise was carried out in full compliance with the norms of international law and commitments of Belarus in terms of OSCE.
