Authorities of Belarus on July 29, 2020 reported the detention of 33 foreignersbelonging to PMC “Wagner”. The Security Council of Belarus announced that a criminal case was opened against the detainees on the article on the preparation of terrorist attacks, later it was reported that they were suspected of preparing riots.

Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine on August 12 appealed to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Belarus with requests for the extradition of 28 Wagnerites (nine of them are citizens of Ukraine) who actively participated in the war in Donbass as part of the “LPR” and “DPR”, but the Belarusian authorities extradited the detained Wagnerites of Russia… Zelensky considered it an unfriendly step from the side of Belarus.

The chief editor of “Censor.NET” Yuri Butusov said on August 18 that the trip of the PMC “Wagner” fighters to Belarus was part of a special operation The Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the SBU: it was supposed to land a plane with mercenaries in Ukraine, and then detain them. According to Butusov, the special operation failed because of the decision of Yermak and Zelensky to postpone the departure of the militants from Minsk, as well as because of the information leak from Ukraine.

This was confirmed by the ex-secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov and the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko. According to them, the special operation has been conducted since 2019.

In the SBU called this data “fantastic scenario”… The head of the GUR Kirill Budanov said that the soldiers of the Wagner PMC in Minsk transferred by Russian special services and this was not a special operation by the SBU.

Zelensky in September 2020 said that no “drain” of the special operation to detain There were no Wagnerians, and in June 2021 compared the special operation scenario with a forced landing in Minsk of a plane with opposition journalist Roman Protasevich. “This was definitely not our operation. The idea of ​​this operation is the idea of ​​other countries, and the fact that Ukraine was dragged into this issue as much as possible is true,” Zelensky said.

In September 2021, the head of the parliamentary interim commission of inquiry, Maryana Bezuglaya, said that the “special event” of the SBU and intelligence was launched in July 2020. According to Bezugla, it was a purely Ukrainian “special event”, other countries or foreign special services did not participate in its planning. She claimed that, according to the main scenarioIt was planned that the Wagnerians would fly to Turkey, where they would be detained, as they go through the databases in connection with their participation in the war in Syria. Airplane landing in Ukraine was among the additional scenarios.

On November 17, the international investigative group Bellingcat published a joint publication with the Russian edition of The Insider investigation “Anatomy of Wagnergate”: a daring Ukrainian operation to capture Russian mercenaries “ on the Ukrainian special operation to detain the militants of the Russian private military company “Wagner”.

The investigation says that, according to the then head of military intelligence Vasily Burba, the president of Ukraine knew about the special operation and approved its conduct, and the head of the OP Andrei Ermak asked to postpone the special operation for a few days to enter into force the armistice agreement in the Donbass. Bellingcat noted that it was unable to independently confirm Burba’s information.

The OP stated that the investigation does not lead to the conclusion that someone “leaked” the operation of the Ukrainian special services, and stressed that Yermak “is not responsible for any intelligence plans” and “has no right to order intelligence.”

On November 19, Burba gave an interview to the “Freedom of Speech” program of Savik Shuster, in which he toldthat the Wagnerian operation was postponed at the direction of Zelensky, whose words conveyed by the head of the President’s Office Ermak. Burba himself believes that transfer caused failure.
