Foreign Ministry of Belarus handed a note of protest to Ukrainian Ambassador: what's the matter
On Thursday, the Ambassador of Ukraine Ihor Kyzym was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus in connection with demonstrations near Belarusian diplomatic missions supporting protesters of the Lukashenko regime and detained activists.
"The Ukrainian diplomat was handed a note from the Foreign Ministry in which the Belarusian party strongly protested against the continuous series of anti-Belarusian actions against the Embassy of the Republic of Belarus in Ukraine and demanded to ensure the security of the diplomatic mission under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of April 18, 1961," the message reads.
The Ministry stated the ambassador was informed that Belarus was "extremely concerned about the inaction of the competent Ukrainian authorities to stop the provocations and the lack of measures to respond to the relevant official requests of the Belarusian party."
The Belarusian Foreign Ministry also expects a reaction "in connection with the provocations that took place against the Honorary Consulate of the Republic of Belarus in Lviv."
As reported, demonstrations to support protesters of the Lukashenko regime and detained activists in Belarus are regularly held near the diplomatic missions of Belarus in Ukraine.
Thus, on November 21, Belarusian Anton Lukashuk held a 7-hour rally near the Belarusian Embassy in Kyiv. The activist stood on his knees and in handcuffs all the time, in solidarity with the detained compatriots.
Mass protests have been going on in Belarus for over three months against the falsification of the results of the August 9 presidential election, which declared Alexander Lukashenko the winner. The European Union and Ukraine have stated they do not recognize its legitimacy.
