The data given shows the scale of the involvement of the Lukashenko regime in the war on Putin’s side. This is another proof of Lukashenko’s complicity in the aggression against Ukraine, along with the provision of training grounds for the mobilized soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces, missile strikes from the territory of Belarus and, of course, the invasion of the Russian Armed Forces from the territory of Belarus in February 2022. Lukashenko, like Putin, is a war criminal, and he must be held accountable.
