Loud detention in Belarus: how 30 fighters of Wagner PMC ended up in Minsk


On the night of July 29, Belarusian law enforcement officers detained three dozen armed men from the Wagner PMC near Minsk (this is the statement of the state news agency BelTA). The fighters had hand luggage and suitcases with them - they were loaded into the vehicle by several men.


The combat group arrived in Minsk on the night of July 25, two days later they moved to one of the sanatoriums near the Belarusian capital. People were dressed in military style, did not attend parties, kept apart from other guests. The Investigative Committee of Belarus is checking the detained persons.


What could the “Wagnerians” do in Belarus? The well-known Russian war correspondent Semyon Pegov is trying to clarify the situation on his Telegram channel. In his opinion, Minsk became a transit point for the soldiers before being sent to Africa. Local special services were aware of and ensured the safety of the transfer of mercenaries during the pandemic.

Apparently, Lukashenka was aware of what was happening - it is unlikely that servicemen from "Wagner" would have arrived in Belarus without his knowledge. But why were they detained? After all, they did not prepare riots in the capital - it is clear from the fact that they did not have weapons with them. It was clean political detention and a tough setup from Batka

    The fact that the state news agency BelTA began "singing" with the voice of the State Department is already significant. PMC Wagner is invented and all fakes about it are spread only by the media and organizations associated with the State Department. Not only is the existence of a PMC contrary to Russian law, and there is no evidence other than messages like this fake BelTA ...

    Belarus was used by PMCs as a transit country on the way to the Middle East and Africa. Agreements on this with the Belarusian authorities were reached at the level of the special services. But dad decided to go all-in before the elections and play the anti-Russian card to attract a nationalist electorate, his chances of becoming president were not very great. The guys from the special services, to put it mildly, are surprised by such a move of their Belarusian colleagues.

    - the very thing is to come to "participate in the riots", so that they can be seen a mile away, move out and walk in formation and singing! Why then were they allowed to enter the territory ?! Perhaps such a twist was prepared for a long time and adhered to until necessary!

    After all, they did not prepare riots in the capital - this is clear from the fact that they did not have weapons with them.

    - for someone it was not, but for someone it was, for example, for the BelTA agency.

    Local special services were aware of and ensured the safety of the transfer of mercenaries during the pandemic.

    - An interesting fact, if the local special services were aware, it turns out that someone deceived someone!

      The absence of weapons proves nothing - when conducting special operations on the territory of another state, weapons for the group are delivered through separate channels and transferred to the executors immediately before the operation, after which they are evacuated or destroyed by the auxiliary team. This is the alphabet, is anyone really so naive that they believe in crossing the border with Kalash in bags?

        I agree with you on this issue. But there are many questions and above all else. Questions to which I would like to know the answers.

          I am afraid that the general public will not receive answers to many questions related to the detention of a group of Russians near Minsk in the near future ...

            You're right, if you get it at all. According to the classics, so to speak, of the genre, such frictions are resolved "under the carpet", in other words, in silence. But there are exceptions!

              It certainly is. It happens that the details of covert operations due to certain circumstances come to light. From my distance, it is difficult for me to judge the realities of this incident, and I do not know the intricacies of Russian-Belarusian relations, so how it was there and why I don’t presume to judge.

    The sea will swell violently,
    He will boil, raise his howl,
    Rushing to the shore is empty,
    Will splash in a fast run,
    And find themselves on the brig,
    In the scales, like the heat of grief,
    Thirty-three heroes,
    All handsome men are good,
    Giants are young,
    All are equal, as to selection -
    With them, Uncle Chernomor.


    So, 33 mercenaries came to the shore of the Belarusian sea, and 170 more are hiding in the forests?
    Are they, like, so they came to stage a coup? Or shout at rallies? Why are we not building and singing across the border? What can you not arrange before the elections in order to sit in a chair, but how is he going to talk with Moscow after that? In fact, this is the Kremlin's accusation.

      Why not? Pashinsky had about the same number of people in Kiev in February 2014. According to Shariy, then they fired a couple of shots, first at the Berkut, and then at the crowd. And when it started, they quietly got into the cars and drove away:


      Since they were dressed in "military", it means that they did not come for this and did not expect such a setup. He will talk to Moscow as usual - since it has been "rolling" before, there is no reason to think that something will change. Apparently, the Tikhanovskys pressed him hard. The flirting of Yanukovych (Poroshenko, Zelensky) with the nationalists did not teach Lukashenko anything to see - he probably thinks that he will "slip through" ...

        Rather, it is not a matter of quantity. If we assume that the goal is really a coup, then it is painfully clumsy work. They rode and lived without hiding. It would be logical to split a friendly company with a military bearing of three dozen into small groups. Somehow everything is not convincing. no I lean towards the version of unfinished transit. I think the "crown psychosis" undermined the position of the chairman. Before the elections, exacerbates the situation.

        As usual, he will talk to Moscow - since it has been rolling before, there is no reason to think that anything will change.

        Perhaps, yes, remorse is hardly to be expected here.

        Apparently, the Tikhanovskys pressed him hard. The flirting of Yanukovych (Poroshenko, Zelensky) with the nationalists did not teach Lukashenko anything, you see, he probably thinks that he will "slip through" ...

        Considering oneself smarter than others is a fairly common delusion, and Lukashenka is no exception.

          Yes, that's what I'm talking about - it's stupid to walk around in the military in small groups of 30 people if you want to stage a coup. About 15 years ago, the movie was, it seems, "hitman" was called - so there the super-top-secret killer in the plot had to mix with the crowd for secrecy, but the director for some reason decided that for this the "hitman" should be two meters tall, bald and with a stroke. code on the back of your head. fool

            I think he is not sure of the election results, in fact, there is no other choice, hence the rough, clumsy game.

              There is always a way out, even if you are eaten. lol Gerontocrats - they are like that ... They seem to have lived and know, but they stubbornly refuse to put up with the fact that the future belongs to the young and this is a biological fact. A spokesperson for Rosneft (61 years old) gave this the other day (from the way it was said in a routine way, it takes quite a while):

              We will face the need to deprive young people of voting rights, probably in the near future. Because otherwise we will lose the country. It's true. Because these people do not know anything, this is almost Ukraine, monstrous ... Because young people are a painful condition that passes with age.

    How did you get these whistlers? They themselves came up with this PMC, pumped up a messy Internet, and now through the controlled media they continue to carry nonsense, about and without remembering it.

    The Russians detained by the Belarusian special services have nothing to do with the Wagner PMC, according to the authors of the REVERSE SIDE OF THE MEDAL Telegram channel, which is associated with Private Military Companies.

    “The Russians detained in Belarus are employees of the PMSC“ Mar ”. During the interrogation, they themselves said that they went to Turkey, ”they write.

    “According to the information at the present time, they should have signed a contract in Turkey for the protection of the Zuvar oil port (controlled by the PNS). And already from Turkey they were supposed to take a civil flight either to Tripoli or to Misurata. There are no flights to Benghazi or anywhere else to Haftar territory from Turkey. There was simply a staging post in Belarus.

    None of the detainees has anything to do with the "musicians" (the slang nickname of the Wagnerites - approx. RV). Just security guards, ”the channel's authors note.

    It will not be surprising if Father changes the composition of his Security Council, and at the same time the leadership of the KGB and the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
    After a while, of course.
