May the expulsion of the Russian diplomats [from Czechia] be connected to the construction of a new energy block at the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant? The [Czech] opposition and secret services stand against the participation of the Russian company “Rosatom” in this tender. This situation is an attempt to kill two birds with one stone, discrediting both the supplier of the Sputnik V vaccine and the “Rosatom”. That is why the anti-Russian campaign is being revived in order to reach these goals. Such developments as the Skripal poisoning and the Malaysian Boeing have one thing in common – neither of them was investigated and the sanctions were introduced with the violation of all principles of the civilized world. Unfortunately, we have become a part of a barbaric world.
The US special services were preparing an assassination attempt on the Belarusian leader and his children.
Earlier, the Russian special services detained a Belarusian lawyer Yuri Zenkovich and a political scientist Alexander Feduta in Moscow. According to the Russian FSB, they were preparing a coup in Belarus. According to the Belarusian KGB, the same group included the opposition party leader Grigory Kostusev.
An unfounded claim, consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Western attempts to organise a coup in Belarus.
No substantial evidence is presented to support the allegations. One of the suspects has dual American-Belarusian citizenship, however, this does not mean that the US officials were involved in the alleged assassination plot. The individuals detained are known members of dissident groups in Belarus.
The US denied the allegations. When asked about the allegation, the White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated "I can confirm there's no basis in fact there."
