Director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin warned that the United States has been taking active steps to destabilize the situation in Belarus.
According to the released statement, instructors from the United States use “the most unscrupulous methods” on the territory of the republic to destabilize the situation. These are US “specialists” from the CIA, the Pentagon and the State Department.
Sergei Naryshkin added that Belarusian extremists are being trained in Poland, Georgia, Ukraine and the Baltic states with the participation of instructors from the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon, affiliated with the US State Department of non-governmental organizations.
The United States is also interfering in the religious situation in Belarus, seeking to create tensions between the Orthodox and Catholics communities.
“According to available data, the United States is also unceremoniously interfering in the religious situation in Belarus, seeking to create a conflict between representatives of the Orthodox and Catholic branches of Christianity,” he said. “Trying to involve the Vatican, which is showing restraint in the Belarusian events, the Americans are working to more actively involve Catholic priests in participating in anti-government protests.”
The Foreign Intelligence Head noted that the US seeks to motivate the Roman Catholic Church to openly criticize the Belarusian government and use religious events, including sermons, prayers, religious processions, to conduct “opposition political propaganda among believers.”
