After the remnants of Belarusian diplomats left Ukraine on March 20, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry announced the possibility of large-scale involvement of the Belarusian army in the Russian aggression against Ukraine in the coming days.

It will be recalled that our Association has repeatedly covered the involvement of the Minsk dictatorial regime in “supporting” the economy of the occupied Crimea over the past two years and we paid special attention to the Russian-Belarusian mafia that de facto controls over Ukraine’s maritime fisheries.

It is noteworthy that on the eve of the probable attack of the Belarusian army, the staff member of Russian intelligence, “Union integrator” Semyon Uralov issued in the Russia-controlled “Sevastopol” edition “ForPost” a “manifesto” on the “Union State” of Russia and Belarus.

In particular, the aggressor’s personnel propagandist states that “Sevastopol is doomed to increase its foreign trade turnover with Minsk by seven miles”, in particular in the spheres of “defense and tourism”.

At the same time, the author of the “manifesto” is forced to admit that under sanctions from civilized countries ‘market games are over” and that now “there will be no market but there will be bilateral relations” on which Russia will become a “wholesale base”.

Interestingly, that Mr. Uralov admitted in the same interview that “if we sever economic ties with the West, the territories will lose something” and that “the Union State may even emerge in China”.

It is noteworthy that the “manifesto” does not mention Lukashenko and his visit to Crimea, that repeatedly announced by the occupiers in 2021 but did not happen. It is obvious that Russia is pragmatically assessing the dictator’s sad fate after the destruction of his army in the framework of hostilities in Ukraine and that Russia is already preparing its own “military administrations” to control Belarus.
