In view of:

  • the direct threat posed by the actions by the illegal regime to involve the Republic of Belarus in the war, loss of independence and territorial integrity of the Republic of Belarus due to its participation in union agreements on cooperation, signed in violation of democratic procedures and after the anti-constitutional coup of 1996, which also became a mechanism for supporting the authoritarian system in the Republic of Belarus for 28 years and contributed to the forceful retention of power by Lukashenka in 2020, contrary to the will of the Belarusian people;
  • the use by the Russian Federation of controlled international organizations and unions for its political, economic and cultural expansion to neighboring countries;
  • the gross violation by the Russian Federation of all international agreements and norms of international law in its aggressive war against Ukraine;
