According to RFE/RL, illegal storage of arms was the only charge which KGB investigators decided to bring against the former minister and Ambassador Mikhail Marynich after ten days of detention at investigative insulator. Before that, they stated that Mikhail Marynich was charged with storage of secret documents and sale of false dollars.

The investigation is still going on. According to the advocate Vera Stramkowskaya who defends Marynich’s interests, he didn’t found himself guilty and explained his persecution with political motives. Mikhail Marynich has already complained to Belarusian Republican Prosecutor’s Office against illegal actions of KGB investigators towards him.
