An ‘espionage case’ which has been opened by the Belarusian KGB in July this year has been transferred to the Supreme Court of Belarus. That was reported by the press-service of the Supreme Court. The case was started by the military board of judges.

According to the KGB the intelligence service of Poland was interested in the military strategic objects of Belarus and Russia at the territory of Belarus. They are likely to be interested in deployment and number of the antimissile systems, S-300 in particular. It is reported that the head of the ‘spies’ network’ was the officer of military air-forces of Belarus Uladzimir Ruskin. The Russian officer Yurenya was also a member of the group.

In January 2007 Uladzimir Ruskin was detained on the border for the attempt of secret materials trafficking. Other ‘members of the spies’ network’ were also arrested soon after. The detained have been charged with high treason through espionage.
