Belarus accuses Moscow of bomb attack

An attack on Russia’s embassy in Minsk could have been the work of Russian agents, according to Belarus president Alexander Lukashenko.

Police are investigating claims that the Russians firebombed their own embassy as part of an on-going campaign against Lukashenko in the Russian media.

Vladimir Zhakhrin, deputy director of the research institute for CIS, believes this could be an attempt of the present Belarusian leader to gain more votes in the coming elections.
