It is known that Poland played an active role in destabilising the situation in Belarus after the presidential elections in 2020, as well as in the attempted coup in the spring of 2021.
Russia is not a party to the conflict (in the Donbas). The Ukrainian authorities are not implementing the agreements signed in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, in order to settle the conflict, especially by refusing to grant the lands of the two "people's" republics a special legal status.
The aim of these messages is to present the situation in Eastern Ukraine as an internal conflict, ignoring irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in the region since February 2014, which has been well documented already for years, making it part of the conflict in Donbas, and is, consequently, bound by the Minsk agreements.
On that note, the Minsk agreements do NOT require "special legal status" for the territories not under government control. Martin Sajdik, who acted as the OSCE mediator, indicates that the Minsk agreements point to a solution on the special status of the Donbas within the decentralisation of Ukraine, emphasising that “The word autonomy does not figure in the Minsk agreements”, it is Russia’s unique interpretation.
On 21 February 2022, in violation of international law, President Putin recognised the independence of two breakaway regions of Ukraine and ordered Russian forces to perform so-called 'peacekeeping' functions, which is yet another Russian invastion and a clear violation of the Minsk agreements.
