"Brilliant KGB Operation": How Russia and the World Reacted to Ryanair's Landing in Minsk


On Sunday, May 23, a Ryanair passenger plane, flying from Athens to Vilnius, was forced to land at the Minsk airport. The reason for the plane's landing was information about mining on board. Among other passengers on the liner was the founder of the telegram channel NEXTA Roman Protasevich, who was immediately arrested by the Belarusian security forces.


According to the deputy of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Lysakov, the KGB of Belarus carried out a “brilliant operation” to force-land a “mined” aircraft and detain the former editor-in-chief of the telegram channel banned in Belarus. Lysakov called the possible harsh sentence to Protasevich and his subsequent pardon by the Belarusian president “the cherry on the cake”.

Meanwhile, many Western policy reacted negatively to the operation of the Belarusian special services. The Greek foreign ministry called the Ryanair landing "government piracy."

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called the incident a dangerous incident that should be investigated by international experts. In addition, according to Stoltenberg, Minsk must ensure the return of all passengers and crew members of the liner. Head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen noted that those on board should be able to continue their flight to Vilnius.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, in turn, believes that the arrest of the plane by the Belarusians is an "act of state terrorism." For the Polish Press Agency, Moravetsky clarified that the actions of the Belarusian authorities are “a crime of Lukashenka against the public,” adding that the Ryanair plane flew accompanied by a MiG-29.

    And when did the "collective West" land the planes in this way? That is, by reporting a bomb planted? Such a trick will cost a "strong potato" very dearly. Foreign airlines will simply stop flying to Belarus and over its territory, and Belarus itself may simply be excluded from ICAO. Then Belavia will only be able to fly to Russia. Well, one must be so wildly afraid of the opposition in order to arrange such an international scandal with such terrible prospects for oneself. ...

          When the Fashingtoners carried out a cyberattack on Iran's nuclear facilities (I will not say anything about the attacks on our Sberbank websites and government agencies), or the elimination of the Iranian general by the US intelligence services despite the fact that these countries are not officially at war.

              In essence, so in essence, eat, do not crap! - liquidation? Nothing, how loud it is! laughing If the task is to poison, then anyone (who studied chemistry in a Soviet school, and not according to the Western Bologna system), not even an FSB officer, will send to the next world and not a single doctor will pump it out, in construction and for radio amateurs "free" slurry, two drops - to call the ambulance on the pocket phone, the sympathizers "will not reach". And here everyone is slightly etched, yeah laughing
              Eh, Borka was not near the Spassky Gate, for the sake of beauty, CNN pictures were shot, resisted, grabbed the railing of the bridge with claws, had to finish off there and drown a pistol with a febos certificate in the river, otherwise a lot of people ran into a "quiet place" to screech. The communists have also "burned the Reichstag despicably" at Adolf !? wink Your owners and Alaizych have not changed their methods, stereotyped, the main thing is that the wall-covered people hawk and do not choke. good
              They still find out who called "for the bomb" on the plane, but your owners do not hesitate to simply lift fighters with full ammunition to intercept passenger aircraft, without any explanation, and force them to land (and regularly shoot them down with air defense).
              Across Russia, in cities for as long as 3 years, several times a year evacuation of schools and stations on calls about mining from xoxland, the Ministry of Emergencies, miners, cops, ambulances. False, but - regularly! Something I have never heard the screeching of indignations from your "civilized" sides, eh? wink
              For interest - cyberattacks regularly occur on Sberbank (and not only), and the systems are frozen, but their own security works, they stop these mangy pens, only, like yours, no one yells with a crazy baboon that this is the USA.
              If you had something on Russia with a real proof, you would have squealed on all channels.
              Well, you have to be such a single-celled brain to believe in the western "highlike" I get on!

          The Americans just planted and the Austrians at their request. Don't you care? Is it all about the "procedure"? If Lukashenka just landed the plane, would you clap your hands?
          Do you have evidence that Belarus has something to do with the message?

In the kitchens you scold the tsar and the boyars in every possible way, and in the elections you unanimously choose the permanent one and his EdRo and vote together for zeroing. As for the FRG - the Germans were dissatisfied with the reunification, no? And yes, the whole point is in the procedure. To plant even just under the pretext that there is a dangerous criminal on board is one thing, but what Luka did is precisely state terrorism. And he will have to pay very dearly. .And all because he was mad with fear and lost all adequacy.

              Reunited with Russia will be even more satisfied. We do not practice repression and a ban on the profession, but the Federal Republic of Germany was engaged in this.

              The pilots made their own decision to land. The author of the message is unknown. The handwriting is very similar to the figures from your Tortuga. Not so long ago, "33 heroes" wanted to land at home. Now, by order of the curators, they have created a pretext for the introduction of new sanctions.

Yes, and it is the Kremlin that is crap, in all directions, and retribution will, of course, be inevitable. It was funny to read nonsense about the pilots who "Made a decision on their own." And the fighter that gave the landing signal advised them to "make a decision" :))) And the author of the message, of course, is unknown. Well, yes, yes :))) And what was the Germans asking? the table went on foot, and I remember well what celebrations were among the people about the reunification. And why will the Germans be reunited with the Russians? Is this one people? And yes, choose an ampirator and then scold him in the kitchens for all the crusts, this is your favorite pastime .

                  And what is nonsense? Everything is done in strict accordance with the rules of the same ICAO. Do not pass on your own anonymous call to Lukashenka.

                  Yes, and it is just the Kremlin that is shitting, in all directions, and retaliation will, of course, be inevitable.

                  And how is this expressed? What will retaliation look like? You have already froze your ears to spite the Kremlin, the list of other organs suitable for this is not great laughing

                  Perhaps this is news to you, but in such cases, a fighter is always lifted into the air. How did you decide that it was he who made him?

                  And the author of the message, of course, is unknown. Well, yes, yes :)))

                  And what could the Germans ask?

                  Why are you going to ask them this time? Double standarts?

                  Maybe you then walked under the table on foot, but I remember well what celebrations were among the people on the occasion of the reunification.

                  Judging by what you have written, you can still walk under the table calmly, only on 4 bones. Don't worry, the celebrations to mark the entry of the GDR into Russia will be no less grandiose.

                  And why would the Germans be reunited with the Russians? Is this one people?

                  You argue in an interesting way. are you not against the reunification of Russia and the LPR? After all, this is one people, by the way, he lives to the west of these regions. smile Russia is a multinational country, we do not have discrimination based on nationality and language, we will also accept Germans into a friendly family.

                  And yes, choose the amperage and then scold him in the kitchens for all the crusts, this is your favorite pastime.

                  How do you know about our favorite activities? By the way, we have something to discuss the Internet. Did you stay in the 80s of the last century?

                  And we will simply choose whoever we want. Our president “is appointed only in some inflamed brains.

                  Did I talk about presidents? I wrote about the premiere, whose "prediction" about the name of which Viktorii made was extremely accurate. lol you really choose presidents yourself, judging by the results you think with inflamed brains.

            There is no need to talk nonsense. There is still some difference between "Aussie" and "Vessey" in some places, but no one considers them second class. I have been to Berlin and Dresden more than once. As I understand it, if anyone has nostalgia for the GDR, it is only some old people who received socialist nishtyaks. The absolute majority of the "Aussies" would never think of returning the GDR.

    Is a referendum the only way? In the spring of 1990, at the first free elections to the parliament of the GDR, new parties that associate themselves with the CSU / CDU won, the program of which is based on the point of German reunification. When the unification agreement was ratified, 79% of parliamentarians voted in favor. This was approximately how the supporters and opponents of the unification were distributed. In Germany, the percentage was slightly higher.

      You yourself wrote that the parliamentarians voted for the agreement. Nobody asked the people. However, the Germans are no strangers, they also do not elect a chancellor. Otherwise, they will choose neither, the occupation administration will be unhappy. Do not worry if, before the entry of the GDR into Russia, the elections will also go right and the deputies will vote accordingly. And of course they will be declared the first free smile

    According to the deputy of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Lysakov, the KGB of Belarus carried out a "brilliant operation" for an emergency landing "Mined" flying machine

    That is, the Belarusian special services deliberately committed an act of "telephone terrorism", thereby exposing the crew and passengers of the civil aircraft not only to severe psychological stress, but also to the non-illusory risk of panic on board with all the ensuing consequences.

    The State Duma deputy called it a "brilliant operation."

    The Belarusians did the right thing, well done. There is no need to lisp with the scum. And the Lithuanian diplomats were expelled on the case. Russia, as an ally of Belarus, now needs to kick off the diplomats of the Baltic mongrels. If Russia does not do this, then it will once again be a betrayal.

    For the Polish Press Agency, Moravetsky clarified that the actions of the Belarusian authorities are “a crime of Lukashenka against the public,” adding that the Ryanair plane flew accompanied by a MiG-29.

    Something Pole Tabak does not bark about the fact that at the behest of the n-owls, the plane of the President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, was landed in Vienna, or how the Turks landed a passenger plane in Syria.
    It is high time to start talking with wolves like a wolf. Wolves do not understand any other language. Belarusians are great !!!
