Igor Kizim threatened the republic with diplomatic war
Ambassador of Ukraine to Belarus Igor Kizim gave a demonstration performance to border guards. It all started with a simple request to open the trunk to check things. The video of the conversation with Kizim hit the Internet.
The incident took place at the customs clearance point "Novaya Guta", the portal Tut.by reports. The ambassador crossed the Ukrainian-Belarusian border. The border guard, referring to the legislation, announced his intention to check Kizim's car.
At the request of the border guard, the ambassador replied that, according to the Vienna Convention, he is not obliged to provide his personal belongings for inspection without good reason. After all, a diplomat simply crosses the border of the country in which he works.
The border guard said that he had no intention of inspecting Kizim's personal belongings. He just needs the diplomat to open the trunk of the car.
Igor Kizim reluctantly got out of the car. Then the fun began. He burst into reproaches.
"We are starting a diplomatic war. Do you want this?" The ambassador threatened.
Earlier, Kizim complained that he had become a victim of provocation by the Belarusian border guards. The diplomat said that this was a violation of international law.
