MINSK, 13 April (BelTA) – The case of the terrorist attack in Minsk’s metro has been solved. Those guilty of the crime have been arrested, said President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko at a government session held on 13 April to discuss the progress in investigating the Minsk metro bombing.
Alexander Lukashenko said: “The case was solved at 5:00 today. KGB and police needed only one day to carry out a smooth operation at 21:00 yesterday. They apprehended the perpetrators without noise and shooting. The criminals gave their testimony at 5:00 today. We know who and how carried out the terrorist attack. So far we don’t know why but it will be known soon and it is our main task now”.
The President noted he was particularly thankful to officers of the State Security Committee (KGB), police, the public prosecution office, all power-wielding agencies for brilliant performance. “Analysts, investigators, and experts precisely rebuilt the timeline of the crime, sifted through a massive amount of audio and video data and, I am particularly pleased about it, they figured out these miscreants without leaving their offices. After that the active phase of the apprehension operation began,” said the Belarusian head of state.
“It is deserving for a civilized nation when people primarily use their brains to combat most complicated crimes. It is important for me as the president,” stressed Alexander Lukashenko.
