Minsk is going to give publicity to this case. The foreign ministry of the country plans to inform the relevant bodies and institutions in the Middle East countries via diplomatic channels. In addition, the Investigative Committee of Belarus will collect data on the disappearance of citizens traveling to Western Europe. The Belarusian side will give a legal assessment to all the revealed and proven actions of the Polish security forces on the border area between the two states.
