President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held a telephone conversation with Belarusian colleague Alexander Lukashenko, during which they talked through the issue of extradition of the Russian PMC Wagner militants detained near Minsk. The Office of the President of Ukraine reported that.
The heads of state discussed in detail the issues related to the detention of Russians on the territory of Belarus at the end of July. The importance of further effective interaction between the competent authorities of the two states was also noted, specifically in the context of the transfer of persons suspected of terrorist activities in Donbas.
Volodymyr Zelensky is confident that those involved in the actions of illegal groups in Donbas will not be able to avoid fair punishment.
"I hope that all suspects of terrorist activities on the territory of Ukraine will be transferred to us for prosecution in accordance with the current international legal documents," the president said.
In addition, Volodymyr Zelensky expressed his personal gratitude to Alexander Lukashenko for the humanitarian assistance provided in July to the population of the western regions of Ukraine, as these were affected by the floods.
“This gesture of true friendship of Belarus once again underlines the values of partnership between our countries,” the head of state noted.
