Belarusian state TV channel ONT pointed to the connection of U.S. President Joe Biden's Advisor Michael Carpenter with the preparation of a coup d'etat and an attempt on Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko.
вЂњThis is all really serious, and it was not without the United States. The State Department reacted, though with restraint: вЂњAny suggestion that the U.S. government was behind this or was involved in the attempted assassination of Lukashenko is absolutely false. Then we'll tell you where Washington should look for the truth вЂ” in Washington itself, from Biden's adviser Michael Carpenter, he will tell you if he wants to,вЂќ said a voiceover on the air of the TV channel.
The network also promised more details in next week's broadcast.
The day before, those accused of preparing a coup d'etat in Belarus pleaded guilty to attempting to assassinate Lukashenko. A day earlier, Lukashenko had disclosed the scenarios of an attempted coup in Belarus.
Last Wednesday, the investigation brought charges against four people detained in preparation for a coup d'etat. Against this background, the U.S. refused to do business with Belarus.
Recall that on April 17, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia detained two men who were preparing a military coup and the elimination of the President of Belarus, planning to rob and steal the property of Alexander Lukashenko. Lukashenka himself accused the U.S. intelligence agencies of the attempted assassination.
According to Lukashenko, Russian President Vladimir Putin asked U.S. President Joe Biden about what had happened. вЂњGurgling вЂ” and not a single answer,вЂќ Lukashenko said. The KGB of Belarus for the first time in its history opened a criminal case under the article on the attempted seizure of power.
