Belarusian KGB Arrests Former Chechen Fighters

The Belarusian media has reported that two former Chechen resistance fighters were arrested and will be extradited to Russia.

According to information that comes from the State Security Committee of Belarus (KGB Respubliki Belarus), two former Chechen resistance fighters were arrested while trying to cross the border between Belarus and Poland in Brest.

The detainees ran away from the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria due to the ongoing repression brought onto themselves and their families. Ultimately, they would like to reach Belgium or Denmark through Poland and ask for asylum. Belarusian authorities claim that the Chechens are on the list of international fugitives as a result of a demand from Russia. The former fighters are accused of killing a Russian police officer in the occupied Chechen capital of Grozny.

The Belarusian KGB noted that the detainees are being interrogated by Russian investigators and in a short time will be transferred to Russia in accordance with an intergovernmental agreement.
