The position of the United Transitional Cabinet of Belarus in connection with the appeal of the Presidents of Lithuania, Poland and Latvia to the NATO Secretary General and to the Heads of State and Government of the Alliance
The United Transitional Cabinet of Belarus welcomes the joint appeal of the Presidents of Lithuania, Poland and Latvia to the NATO Secretary General and to the Heads of State and Government of the Alliance, urging them to take action to counter the threats posed by Russia’s aggressive actions and the evolving situation in Belarus.
We consider it very important that our closest partners clearly understand the problems and threats emanating from Russia and the Lukashenko regime - both for Belarus and for regional security in general.
We fully support the approach that the Alliance should use all possible means to counter these threats. And also that democratic, stable and prosperous Belarus, not subdued by Russia and exploited by the Kremlin’, is important to the Alliance.
We emphasize the need for a proactive strategy of the countries - strategic allies of democratic Belarus to ensure the reliable protection of the independence of Belarus, to promote the democratic aspirations of the Belarusian society and democratic changes in Belarus during the transition period.
We consider this statement of the three member states of the EU and NATO as a clear message in support of Belarus' sovereignty and the need for Belarus to withdraw from Russia's neo-imperial integration projects: the Union State, the CSTO, the EAEU and the CIS.
And we note the need to bring the Lukashenko regime to justice for crimes against humanity, the crime of aggression against Ukraine, and war crimes related to the illegal transfer of Ukrainian children.
