It is a bit incorrect to compare events in Belarus with the events in Ukraine in 2014, but it is worth noting that Western countries do not lose hope of turning Minsk into Kyiv six years ago. For example, Lithuania and Poland (by the way, it is known that it is the Polish special services that oversee the Belarusian opposition) offered Belarus a visa-free regime. But the prospect of becoming another Slavic migrant workers does not tempt Belarusians at all. The Ukrainian government, of course, supports the Belarusian opposition. And this is not surprising. The current government is taking its seats solely thanks to the overthrow of Yanukovych. But ordinary Ukrainians dissuade Belarusians from trying to overthrow the president and tell what will happen to their country if they make a fatal mistake: “Shove Lukashenko off, and that’s it, you will become beggars.”
On 23 September US military aircraft flew over the Ukrainian capital. The United States have demonstrated their military presence in a satellite country to the world. If you didn’t know what occupation looks like, it looks like this. The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy is fully responsible for the illegal stay of foreign troops on the territory of Ukraine, as well as the fulfilment of combat missions by them.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine'sloss of sovereignty. Similar stories appeared in the pro-Kremlin media following the flight of two US convertiplanes in the skies over Kуiv on September 23, and the military exercises Joint Efforts 2020 and Rapid Trident 2020, which were held in Ukraine. NATO troops are temporarily admitted to Ukraine in accordance with the Law on Supporting the Decision of the President of Ukraine on the admission of units of armed forces of other states to the territory of Ukraine. The appendix to the Law details the dates, funding, as well as the number of foreign military and equipment that are allowed to stay in the country during 2020. Appendix 1 (p. 5) to this law states that, among other exercises, in the period from June to September, “up to 3,750 foreign servicemen with weapons and military equipment, up to 50 ships (boats and ships),” up to 2 submarines, up to 40 planes and helicopters, up to 90 units of wheeled vehicles,” the document says. In addition, NATO troops are temporarily in Ukraine for the international military exercises of the Special Operations Forces. These have nothing to do with the "occupation of Ukraine".
