Border post on Belarus-Poland border damaged

The border post on the Belarusian-Polish border has been damaged.

"In the morning of 17 January, a border guard unit discovered that a shield featuring the image of the State Emblem of the Republic of Belarus on a frontier post near the Usov outpost in Grodno District was damaged," the Investigative Committee said.

The border post is located in close proximity to the Belarusian-Polish border, with its front side facing the neighboring state.

Investigators and forensic specialists are investigating the trace picture, interrogating witnesses. Metal balls were recovered from the scene. They, presumably, were used to cause damage.

A criminal case was opened under Art. 370 (desecration of state symbols) of the Criminal Code of Belarus.
