"To appoint Boris Gryzlov as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Belarus," the document says.
It is assumed that Gryzlov will initially combine work at the embassy and in the Trilateral Contact Group.
It is noted that the candidacy of Gryzlov was approved by the Belarusian Foreign Ministry.
Since 2015, Gryzlov has been the plenipotentiary representative of the Russian Federation in the contact group for resolving the situation in Donbas. In 2003-2011 he was the speaker of the State Duma and from 2001 to 2003 - the Minister of Internal Affairs of Russia.
At the end of July, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko mentioned that he was ready to deploy Russian army bases in the republic if it would be necessary for the security of the Union State. In September, Lukashenko reported that Russia could supply Belarus with weapons worth more than $1 billion by 2025.
Later, Lukashenko did not rule out the possibility of deploying Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus.
