We state that the Republic of Belarus is temporarily occupied territory, the Russian Federation is an occupying country, and the Lukashenko regime is a puppet government. And we call on our allies in the democratic movement to support this position, and on our foreign partners to provide an appropriate international legal assessment of the situation.
As a result of the broad international recognition of the occupation of Belarus by the Russian Federation, it will be possible to effectively promote the following questions of principle:
1) Preservation of the territorial integrity and independence of Belarus. In this context the international recognition of Belarus as temporarily occupied territory is an important preventive measure to protect our country’s sovereignty, since any possible actions of the occupiers to change the legal status of the occupied territory will have no effect in terms of international law, which obliges the occupiers to abandon it unconditionally.
2) On the prevention of the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus and the creation of threats to regional security.
3) On assessing any activity of Belarusian citizens to oppose the Lukashenko regime and the Russian occupation as actions taken as part of the national liberation movement to defend the sovereignty and independence of our country.
4) To deprive Lukashenko’s puppet government of its international legal personality and suspend the membership of Belarus in international organizations (UN, IMF, Interpol, etc.) until the occupation is terminated and a new government is democratically formed.
5) To synchronize sanctions against Russia and Belarus as an occupied territory and eliminate opportunities for Russia to circumvent sanctions through Belarus and use our country as an offshore zone.
