Aliaksandr Tishchanka emphasised that the incident had no relation to the Belarusian-Russian military exercises Zapad 2013 held in Belarus in late September. “The border guard received the injury when he was performing a task on the state border,” he said.
We remind that charter97.org was the first to inform about the death of a border guard. The information was received from a reader, who said it had happened during Zapad 2013 drills.
“A young officer of the border troops, senior lieutenant Navitski, was killed during Zapad 2013 military exercises. RIP. He served in the Hrodna border troops. It's very unpleasant to see attempts to hide this fact,” the reader wrote.
The Ministry of Defence and the Hrodna border group declined to comment on the officer's death this morning.
