The Border Committee of Belarus reported that Belarusian border guards intercepted a Ukrainian drone. The incident occurred on November 2, 1 kilometer from the Belarusian-Ukrainian border in the Gomel region.
According to the report, border guards noticed a quadrocopter heading from the Ukrainian side to the Belarusian territory and forcibly landed it.
“As a result of the analysis of the UAV’s memory card data, the fact of its launch from Ukrainian territory has been confirmed. It has been established that the quadcopter was used by Ukrainian paramilitary units on the border with the Republic of Belarus,” the ministry stressed.
The contents of the discovered photos and videos indicate that the drone was equipped with an infrared vision system and was used for training the movement and dumping of explosive devices, as well as conducting reconnaissance and shooting technical means of border protection on the territory of the Republic of Belarus.
The incident was likely a result of a technical malfunction or a mistake of the Ukrainian military. Kiev is yet to comment on the incident.
At the end of October, the head of the State Border Committee of Belarus warned the Kiev regime that in case of provocation against Belarusian border guards, Minsk would give an appropriate response. According to the Belorussian military, the situation on the borders with the Baltic States and Poland is calm. Military units, including territorial defense detachments, were deployed along the border with Ukraine.
