Not same focus but..
Even if they don't mind getting slammed as the evil foreign power always trying to topple govts :p the govt type of espionage or power struggle within Belarus between pro Russians and non-pro Russians is hard for outsiders to interfere on all levels. I doubt anyone or at least not me will be blaming Belarus for eternity if they support Russia whatever the reason. I mean Japan, Germany were on Axis Powers and Russia were with the Allies during WWII..

I get nervous whenever the discussion swings this way esp seeing the pro-ukr trying to help the war by tweeting recently abt Russia in this direction. Going there is imo a very bad idea because Ukr's own history with Crimea (which for a brief period was autonomous as self-declared) is not a great one to know for the context of the ongoing war if you want Ukr to win. The war has gone on for 1 year pretty much with most of the world totally supportive of Ukr and not bothering to know what the 4 regions are called or their very convoluted past with Ukr and Russia which is great cuz once you know, the only downside is losing some support, no upside at all. The public is very fickle..
Exactly.. that is also why everyone supports Ukr because there is that Ukr / Russia delineation. Both of you are sovereign so whatever the history, no matter whether there could be any group in particular getting the short end of the stick, these are internal affairs of Ukraine and the golden international rule is you don't interfere at all, safe for the usual useless strictly verbal politicking. Russia's declaration of war is purported to be intervention by action. Purported and a fake cover story if it is doesn't matter - it is the very same type of help that you wish for and very frustrated why the world doesn't seem to be doing for Belarus and Ukraine..I emphasize that none of this in any way justifies Russian intervention
