On Monday, Alexander Lukashenko met with Vladimir Putin in Sochi. During the conversation, among others he shared with Putin his view on the mass departures of Russians who want to avoid mobilization. – Well, let them run, 30-50 thousand, let them go. I don’t know how you relate to it, I didn’t care there, as thousands left in 2020. Most want to come back now, they ask us to take them back, he said.
Belarus and Russia form a union state, and Belarus has provided Russia with territory to attack Ukraine, but without sending its troops to the territory of the attacked country. The authorities and official media regularly assure that Minsk supports Moscow and that “they will not allow their ally to be stabbed in the back.”
