In the Foreign Ministry of Belarus, British military attache White Boycott Timothy and Deputy Ambassador Lisa Tumwood were accused of the “destructive nature of the activity.
“On November 8, 2020, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus decided to declare two diplomats of the Embassy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Belarus persona non grata in view of activities incompatible with the status of a diplomatic agent, as well as with the objectives of being in the Republic of Belarus,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Anatoly Glaz.
At the same time, Belarus called such a decision “forced” and stressed that “they do not close the doors for dialogue with their British colleagues and leave them open”.

Both diplomats had already left the territory of Belarus.
