Russia is already immersed in a civil war after the coup launched by the Wagner Group. Belarus could be next.
The situation in Belarus is beginning to be as confusing as in Russia. News has been published that the business jet of dictator Aleksandr Lukashenko, an ally of Putin, would have flown to Turkey. The plane, a Canadair CL-600-2B19 Challenger 850, registration EW-301PJ, was detected last night on Radarbox taking off from Misk and headed for the Turkish coastal town of Bodrum.
This afternoon the Kastus Kalinowski Regiment, a unit of Belarusian volunteers fighting alongside the Ukrainian Armed Forces, has released the following video (the video is in Belarusian, you can activate the automatic subtitles in English in the lower bar of the player):
This is the transcript of the video:
"Favorable conditions for the destruction of the dictatorship are rapidly approaching. This is the beginning of the end of the great tyranny! I appeal to all Belarusian military personnel. Do not participate in Russia's internal conflict this civil war does not concern us.
Another one thing is important for Belarusians. The time is approaching when you will be faced with a choice to carry out a criminal order or the oath that you took on loyalty to the Belarusian people. We have a huge reserve on the territory of Belarus, which includes active military, reserve military and ordinary citizens who are ready to act and liberate Belarus from dictatorship and occupation.
We will need people for decisive action. Prepare to join the self-defense units. Every city, every quarter, every street must be ready to control its own territory and maintain order. Soldiers, reservists, Belarusians - Wait for our signal! The time of freedom is approaching!"
This Belarusian military unit was formed in March 2022, under the name of the Kastus Kalinouski Battalion, taking the name of Konstanty Kalinowski (1838-1864), a Polish hero who participated in the Uprising of 1863 that carried out Poles, Lithuanians and Belarusians against the Russian Empire. Today the unit has grown to the size of a regiment.
