President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated that he had formed a reserve of security forces for Belarus. However, there is no need to use them in Belarus at this moment. He said this in an interview with the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK), RIA-Novosti reports.
According to the head of state, the situation in Belarus is stabilizing, and the security forces are behaving quite restrained.
He also noted that Russia was reacting to the protests in Belarus more neutrally than Europe and America.
"Alexander Grigoryevich (Lukashenko - 112 International.) asked me to form a certain reserve of law enforcement officers. And I did. But we also agreed that it will not be used until the situation gets out of control," Putin said.
As we reported earlier, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that there are forces in Belarus that seek to implement the "Ukrainian scenario" for resolving the political situation.
“The situation in Belarus is normalizing, and after the outbreak of violence in the first days after the elections, the protests are peaceful. This, however, is not profitable to those who seek to implement the Ukrainian scenario in the republic,” Lavrov said.
