Historian Yury Felshtinsky believes that the Alliance troops should help liberate our country.

The presentation of the book "Belarus in NATO" took place in Warsaw's "East European House" (Dom Wschodni).

The discussion was attended by the leader of the European Belarus civil campaign, ex-presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov, ex-minister of defence of Poland, former vice-president of the European Parliament Janusz Onyszkiewicz and the well-known Russian-American historian Yury Felshtinsky. The moderator was Natallia Radzina, editor-in-chief of Charter97.org.

Historian Yury Felshtinsky expressed the opinion that Belarus is the key to solving problems in our region:

"The liberation of Ukraine, strange as it may seem, should begin with the liberation of Belarus. The loss of Belarus for Russia would mean that the attempt to seize Ukraine becomes pointless. It has already, as we can see, proved difficult for the Russian Federation, but if Belarus is not controlled, the war is lost for the Russians".

The historian believes that NATO troops should help liberate Belarus:

"We lost time. As soon as it became known that Russia was moving nuclear weapons to Belarus, I started writing articles and giving interviews that NATO should liberate the Belarusian territory in a preventive way. Because the presence of nuclear weapons in Belarus creates an incredible security risk in Eastern Europe. Even now, frankly speaking, I believe that the entering of NATO troops into Belarus is an issue of paramount importance. In a way, it is more important than the liberation of Ukraine.

Moreover, when the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian army was planned, I said quite delicately, so as not to offend Ukraine, that it was necessary to concentrate not on forcing Russian troops out of the occupied territories, but on forming a Belarusian division on the basis of the Kalinousky regiment and entering Belarus. Again, I believe that the liberation of Belarus strategically changes the situation on the Ukrainian front.

Moreover, unlike Russia, where it is necessary to change the regime, but it is quite difficult, Belarus is a pure dictatorship. We know it from the results of the 2020 elections, when Belarus protested in front of the eyes of all mankind. Therefore, regime change in Belarus is a fairly simple operation for NATO".
