Russia won't abandon its citizens arrested in Minsk - FM

Russia will not desert its citizens apprehended over alleged subversive activities by the Belarus officials, Kremlin Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Tuesday.

"As far as the Russian citizens detained in Belarus and the show that has been staged over this are concerned, we will not leave them in the lurch," Zakharova said, accusing President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, for using the narrative about a foreign enemy to win the upcoming elections.

Upon the arrest of the Russian citizens in Minsk, Lukashenko noted that Russia and "hostile" Western powers want to stage a "color revolution" in the country.
