The Verkhovna Rada registered a draft resolution on recognizing the territory of Belarus as temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation.

This was announced by one of the initiators of the project, People’s Deputy Oleksiy Honcharenko.

«Lukashenko helps Putin kill our citizens, destroy our houses and infrastructure. Russia has already carried out the actual Anschluss of Belarus, and Lukashenko is only fulfilling the whims of the Russian dictator. It is necessary to exert maximum pressure on this illegal regime!“, the message says.

In particular, the project deals with:

  • an appeal to the international community with a request to recognize the territory of Belarus as temporarily occupied by Russia;
  • depriving Lukashenko’s government of international legal personality;
  • termination of Belarus’ participation in international organizations, to synchronize sanctions against Russia and Belarus as an occupied territory, and to eliminate the possibility of the Russian Federation circumventing sanctions through Belarus and using this country as an offshore zone.

We will remind you that the General Staff of the Armed Forces does not rule out a second attack by the occupiers from Belarus, this time the target may be the western regions of Ukraine. ISW analysts consider the risk of an attack on Ukraine by Belarus to be low.
