Lukashenka calls for Ukraine, Russia to help investigate Vagner mercenaries

Belarusian President has ordered his government to invite Ukrainian and Russian prosecutors to Belarus to investigate a group of 33 mercenaries from the private Russian security firm Vagner Group who"ve been detained in Minsk.

Alyaksandr Lukashenka announced the move during a government meeting in Minsk on August 6.

“The three [Belarusian, Ukrainian, and Russian prosecutor-generals] should sit together and decide the way they find proper”, - he said.

The Belarusian leader said a decision on how to treat the case “must be based” on Belarusian and international laws. Lukashenka added that if the Russian and Ukrainian prosecutors do not travel to Minsk for the meetings, “we will make the decision ourselves”.
