"[Ukrainian President] Volodymyr Zelensky has addressed the issue of the militants detained in Belarus. He said they were involved in the military action in Donbas and Ukrainian prosecutors are investigating these facts. Alexander Lukashenko, for his part, said law enforcement agencies will cooperate on this issue under the international agreements signed with Russia and Ukraine," the press service for the Belarusian presidential administration said in a report released following a phone conversation between the two presidents.
