Lukashenko hypocritically equalized Belarusians and Ukrainians in disenfranchisement

On September 15, Lukashenko issued a decree equalizing the rights of Ukrainian refugees in Belarus with those of Belarusian citizens. However, the main reason why refugees are forced to come to Belarus from Ukraine is not voiced.

Why are Lukashenko and his propagandists silent about the fact that it was because of the regime's support of Russia's war against Ukraine that all these people were forced to leave their home? Why is it not mentioned that it was because Russian troops entered Ukraine from the territory of Belarus that the tragedies in Bucha, Irpen and many other Ukrainian cities took place? Why is there no mention of the fact that rocket and air strikes from the territory of Belarus deprived Ukrainians of their homes and many of their lives?

And now Lukashenko has signed a decree allegedly "in the interests of the Ukrainians”. The main interest of Ukrainians with regard to Belarus is the end of the Lukashenko regime's aggression against Ukraine.

Lukashenko has actually united the Belarusians and Ukrainians in disenfranchisement. This is the main thing we should understand in this decree of the dictator.
