Lavrov: Ukraine behind Belarus unrest

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday that Moscow had confirmed information Ukraine is behind the civil unrest currently taking place in Belarus.

Lavrov stressed Moscow's support of the Belarusian government and vowed Russia will prevent any foreign influences from meddling in Minsk's internal affairs.
