The embers of warfare are igniting. Everyone seems to be utilizing the continuing turmoil as a possibility to assault their enemies. Belarus and Lithuania are akin to Russia and Ukraine in that the individuals dwelling there have many genetic and cultural similarities. Lithuania has partnered with the West, becoming a member of NATO in 2004, whereas Belarus has proven loyalty to Russia. The 2 nations share a 420-mile border (680 km) with six border crossings, however Lithuania applied “non permanent” closures to a lot of crossings because of “geopolitical circumstances.”
Russian Wagner Group mercenaries had been believed to be on Lithuanian territory this previous August, sparking the preliminary border crossing closures. These non permanent closures had been by no means lifted and the Belarus authorities is now threatening warfare. Russian troops have already been positioned in Belarus for a while. “Lithuania has successfully banned us from transferring our items throughout the border. Beneath all norms of worldwide regulation, such a step is taken into account financial aggression,” the Belarusian official mentioned. “From the point of view of basic logic, we have every reason to use the force of arms to break through a corridor that is vital for us.”
The Neocons are shouting ARTICLE 5 as they’re merely ready for somebody to make the primary transfer so they don’t have to create a false flag occasion. Belarus seemingly is not going to make a transfer with out Russia’s approval, and Putin has been very strategic to date. The query turns into how far nations may be pushed till somebody makes the primary transfer.
