Car with Molotov cocktails detained in Minsk

The March 25 protest in Minsk could turn into a tragedy. KGB officers have received timely information about the planned provocation during the unsanctioned rally.

KGB noticed a passenger car parked on March 23 near the Academy of Sciences.

The man who drove the car to this place is now known.

This is a 32-year-old resident of Minsk Sergey Kuntsevich. In the car, law enforcement officers found megaphones, wires, a microphone and a cardboard box with dozens of bottles filled with liquid smelling of fuel mixture and wicks made from rags.

As it became known, Sergey Kuntcevich is a supporter of the Belarusian National Congress, which was established by Nikolai Statkevich.

The detainee had repeatedly been brought to criminal and administrative liability.

Now he is in a temporary detention facility.
