Putin’s ‘polite people’ at Minsk railway station

Several soldiers in uniforms of Russia’s Army were seen at Minsk railway station.

They refused to answer who they are and where they are going to. The soldiers also did not want to be photographed.

They had two big military cases with Pulkovo Airport luggage stickers. Another sticker was in the colours of the Russian flag and bore inscription ‘I Am Just a Polite Man’.

‘Polite people’ – camouflaged servicemen in balaclavas but without any insignia who appeared in Crimea before the March referendum.

A week ago Russian soldiers from Bryansk wearing the uniform without insignias were reported to appear in the Belarusian city of Homel.
