Ukrainian ambassador threatens Belarusian border guard with diplomatic war

56

Igor Kizim, who holds the post of the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Republic of Belarus, announced the beginning of a diplomatic war between the two countries to an employee of the Belarusian border service. The reason for the incident was the examination of the trunk of the diplomat's car while crossing the border through the Novaya Guta checkpoint.


This is reported by the Belarusian portal Tut.by. The video recording of the Ukrainian diplomat's communication with the border guard was published by the State Border Committee of the Republic of Belarus.


On the recording, an employee of the Belarusian border service told the ambassador that he intends to inspect his vehicle. In response, Kizim referred to the provision of the Vienna Convention, according to which the luggage of a diplomatic worker should be examined if he crosses the border of the country where he works. The border guard noted that that is why he will not inspect the diplomat's luggage, but only asks him to open the trunk of the car.

It all ended with the Ukrainian diplomat submitting to the demands of the border guard, but warning him about serious consequences for the Ukrainian-Belarusian relations. According to the ambassador, he will write a note, after which a diplomatic war will begin between the two countries.

Later, he stated in an interview that he was the victim of a provocation while crossing the border:

My personal car was inspected by Belarusian border guards in violation of international law.

        Yes, nothing will happen to him! Besides gratitude. Don't you think that he, of his own free will and desire, began to inspect the ambassador's car? Although, it is far from the fact that this was not a Ukrainian provocation and that the car had diplomatic numbers.

          Deep numbers on the video are clearly visible! Inspection has a place to be, but not as clumsy as in the video, it's just hard! Where is the official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus? Where are the representatives of the KGB BS department?

            Honestly, I didn't. This means that this issue has been resolved. But I will stick to my opinion - the border guard did what he was ordered to do. And absolutely nothing will come to him for it. Officially - they will punish, not officially - they will encourage.

                Yes, even the Ukrainians will not submit notes on this matter. They have so many shoals against the dad during the elections that if they serve, they will simply receive a flurry of notes in return for interfering in the internal affairs of a sovereign state.

                What else can be hyped in the tabloids. But Pan Igor Kizim, who holds the post of the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Republic of Belarus, announced the beginning of a diplomatic war between the two countries, behaved rudely with the border guards on duty. I do not think that a "diplomatic war" will break out because of some inadequacy.

              I looked. I was interested in how the video obviously from the camera of the border guard got into the network. It seems that the authorities themselves clearly wanted to demonstrate this plot. And the ambassador himself opens the trunk, and it is not the border guard who does this, which means that there is no question of inspection. This is an inspection. And this is not the same girl in the passenger seat that Nemtsova walked around Moscow?

              I agree that the border guard probably acted on orders.
              Accordingly, there will be no punishment.
              Unlike some, I think that it was the border guard who behaved politely and correctly, and the ambassador was arrogant (which is not surprising from the velikoukra).
              I don’t know the rules well, but, like the border guard, I think that a car inspection is NOT a luggage inspection ..
              And the last thing. The diplomatic relations of Belarus with Ukraine are very shaky today and, I think, can be cut off at any moment and without this note of Kizima, which, probably, will not exist.

            In your opinion, he should have been slowed down when crossing and left to wait until the staff you voiced appear? How long can it take, and the ambassador will sit in the typewriter?
            So isn't it easier, if of course there is nothing to hide, to open the trunk, close it and go further, because it seems like they shouldn't stir it up, the trunk?

                You don't compare Japan and Ukraine. The latter allowed herself to interfere in the affairs of Belarus, for which her actual position was demonstrated to her. Simply put, due to economic, political, etc. the importance of Ukraine in the world, its place is to sit quietly, and not to get involved in big politics.

My persuasiveness and indignation of the crew were not enough to dissuade me, and he himself, out of excessive zeal, "consulted" with his superiors only after the inspection. In fact, he turned quite pale during a short telephone conversation. For a long time I wrote down the translation into English of the apologetic speech to the crew. The pilots assured that the incident would be considered settled and would not be reported to their superiors. It seems to have carried over.

            Well, I don’t know - on the camera, on the right in the background, there is another fighter of the outfit, who is the senior in the shift — it’s not really clear from the video. But you must admit that if a fighter had "screwed up", it is unlikely that he would have sent the video to the network. But, judging by the look of the ambassador, the video was made precisely from the camera of the border guard)))

              In my experience of interacting with border guards (airport), the senior rarely inspects. On it is general control.
              Fig knows him. In our time, and service records can get into the network. In general, I personally doubt that his superiors needed such a rude statement. I don't see any point in it. Although, of course, I am not a politician in Belarus. :)

              And he also has no right to touch anything at the "usual" vehicle during the inspection. In any case, our border guards especially emphasize this, even when the crew says "yes, everything is not locked, look what you want." The border guards only show with a finger what to open, without even touching, or even verbally.

                Yes, that is right. I absolutely agree with you. But a colleague wrote correctly - to open the trunk yourself - inspection. Ask the owner to do it - inspection. The border guard did not conduct a search. And the rest is not the point. Tomorrow will be forgotten

                Do you understand what is the matter ... His superiors did not need such a statement from the word at all, and even more so clumsy (and we have forgotten how to do it more subtly). But all this was necessary for Lukashenka with one single purpose, namely, to get another bonus in the upcoming talks in the Kremlin.

                So he intercepts radio communications from Berlin (ha-ha), so he promises to send potassium to Russian ports (and he did not do this even when he was offered a huge discount), and now he nightmares the ambassador of Ukraine and just shouts: "I'm for you, Volodya. Look, I even showed Ukraine where the crayfish winter. "

                Everything fits perfectly under this logic. Indeed, without the knowledge of A.G. such things don't happen here.

            We have small-breds in general arranged a shmon on the plane, and without the presence of a crew, that categorically prohibited. This was at the beginning of the Skripals' epic.
            And I repeat once again, neither the crew nor the diplomatic workers of Russia were invited to this scam.
            Nobody knows what they could have thrown there and other provocations.
            However, it worked.

      Inspection and inspection are two different things.

      Where is the line? To look into the trunk, in my opinion, is already an inspection. In any case, the border guards at our airport think so. To "check the trunk" for them is to open it and look inside, even if it is the trunk of a small Cessna-525, the size of a car and can be seen through without sticking your head.
      And "inspection" is really to inspect the car from the outside, along the outer contours, so to speak. Without changing the configuration and without opening the internal volumes - without opening trunks, doors, etc., without sticking your head into the cabin.

          It's lazy for me to delve into an unfamiliar set of documents, but our border guards call the most voluntary opening of the trunk by the owner of the plane with their own hands "inspection". At regular border crossing by a law-abiding person. Standard procedure: "open this [point with finger] without touching": trunks, technical compartments, cabinets with appliances, etc. At the same time, without touching anything inside, if everything looks legal there. The standard report on p / st - "Inspection started" / "Inspection completed".
          Maybe you are confusing "search" and "search"? It is possible that the border guard in the video was quite sincerely confused about the differences between "inspection" and "inspection" - I spoke about them elsewhere in the thread.

    But I’m wondering which of the governments of Belarus this ambassador promised to start a diplomatic war? The one that Ukraine does not recognize, or the one that shrubs around Europe? Or is he still so, abstractly, with all the Belarusian janitors, including, going to fight? But I'm afraid that the janitors in their answer will teach this "settlement" to many new dip.expressions.

    Gross violation of the Vienna Convention. The reason is clear - Lukashenka is afraid that someone from those whom Lukashenka would like to imprison will be taken out to Ukraine.
    Obviously, the border guard did this not on his own initiative, but on orders from the very top.
    At another time, the border guard for such an inspection would have been kicked out with a bang, but now is a special time, the authorities themselves ordered.

        Dissidents, and not only dissidents, were often taken out in the trunk of a car with a diploma, which is not subject to inspection. Apparently, they suspected that the ambassador was taking someone out, there would be a scandal. But it turned out to be a mess.

                  Everything is simple for you.

                  If something looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then this is probably a duck.

                  Dissidents, and not only dissidents, were often taken out in the trunk of a car with a diploma, which is not subject to inspection.

                  That is, you admit that Western diplomats have always been engaged in illegal activities and interference in the internal affairs of another state?

                  Try to explain ... If you can.

    My personal car was inspected by Belarusian border guards in violation of international law.

    It is interesting when they need Ukrainian officials to recall and refer to the norms of international law.

    Igor Kizim, who holds the post of the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Republic of Belarus, announced the beginning of a diplomatic war between the two countries to the employee of the Belarusian border service.
    And did you threaten the dog of the Belarusian border-customs service? laughing

    How would you like this "Ukraine" to sooner become a part of the EU. Areas of Poland and Hungary, and of Romania.
