I hope that Belarusian soldiers will refuse to obey orders of traitors and will take the side of the people in order to defend our common interests and our homeland – Belarus. Long Live Belarus! Square-2017!”
These exercises bring no good. We will have to become partisans.
A similar scenario was in the Crimea – the [Russian] Navy base with 30 thousand military men on legal grounds. If foreign troops do not leave Belarus after exercises, there will be problems. Something should be done now, otherwise it may be too late.
We need to fight, not be indifferent, we need to take a stand against Putin’s occupation, against any presence of foreign soldiers in Belarus. Lukashenka was the one who made the decision. He surrendered our culture and language. Workers wake up, young people make all kinds of bikers run away. They [Russia’s pro-Putin Night Wolves biker gang] have no place in our country. People, we will win if we take the street and do not leave it until we win.
The Lukashenka’s regime is not eternal. Sooner or later it falls. And Lukashenka will be liable then.
No one can stand aside when occupants are trying to become masters here! The Russians have already proved their “brotherhood” in Ukraine with their fascist actions, the war, murders of Ukrainians… We must clearly understand it to have an opportunity for a better life of our children and grandchildren.
