'Bear Drop“ examined by the Presidential Commission

Currently the Commission of Belarus' President inspects all formations and units of the Air Forces and Air Defense Forces of the country.

According to BelaPAN, the reason for this is the information on July 4th illegal border crossing of the single-engine airplane with Swedish crew, which is dropped teddy bears over Ivyanets and western outskirts of Minsk.

The commission includes representatives of the Security Council and the Ministry of Defence.

We remind, teddy bears were dropped over Belarus by the representatives of Swedish PR firm Studio Total.

On July 5 the representative of Studio Total Thomas Mazetti published on the SVT channel website his message, where he said that was one of those who invented, organized and carried out the flight to Belarus. According to Mazetti, he and his colleague in the Studio Total Hannah Lina Frey were on the plane. Support of the action in Lithuania and Belarus was carried out by Linda Carlson and Per Cromwell. They took pictures from the ground and had to try to pick up the pilots, if an attempt to bring them down had been made. According to Mazetti, they spent in the air 1 hour 20 minutes in total and during that time "landed" about 800 teddy bears over the villages and towns of Belarus, including Minsk.

Ministry of Defense and State Border Committee of Belarus declared there were no violations of the airspace border.
