USA urged airlines to observe "extreme caution" when flying over Belarus

Washington decided to intensify sanctions pressure on the "Lukashenka regime", White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on May 28, 2021.

On June 3, restrictions on nine enterprises in Belarus, previously lifted by the United States, are to be resumed. Currently, the US Treasury is studying the possibility of introducing personal sanctions against Belarusian officials (“key figures of the regime”), which will still have to be approved by US President Joe Biden. In addition, Washington is suspending the 2019 air services agreement with Minsk.

Psaki clarified that these measures are being taken to put in place and then bring to justice the authorities of Belarus, as well as to demonstrate solidarity to the US allies and support for the Belarusian people. Washington called on Minsk to urgently release all "political prisoners "and start a dialogue with the" leaders of the democratic forces "for the earliest possible early" fair elections "of the head of state under the supervision of the international community. She explained that the US reaction was related to the emergency landing of the plane of the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair on May 23 in Minsk and the detention by the Belarusian authorities of the former editor-in-chief of the NEXTA Telegram channel Roman Protasevich.

At the same time, the US State Department issued a warning for travel to Belarus, and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) warned air carriers about the need to exercise "extreme caution" when flying over Belarus.

Note that the "leaders of the Euro-Atlantic movement" from Kiev, on May 26, before the decision of the European Union, stopped air communication with Belarus. At the same time, it is alarming that it is Ukraine, neighboring with Belarus, that has the greatest experience in the world in destroying flying airliners with people on board with their missiles. Therefore, the warning from the United States, apparently, is worth heeding, since the Americans would not have been in vain to touch upon such a sensitive topic as flight safety.

    About 30 years ago, the American cruiser Vincennes shot down an Iranian passenger airliner Airbus A300B2-203 with a missile. On board the plane, flying IR655 Tehran - Bandar Abbas - Dubai, there were 290 people. Despite the obvious involvement of Washington in these events, the White House refused to admit guilt. The captain of the ship, who gave the command to destroy the civilian aircraft, received one of the highest state awards of the United States. Historians and military experts agree that the actions of American sailors are a war crime.

    The United States categorically refused to admit its guilt as a state. Presidents Reagan and Bush took turns speaking roughly in the sense that Washington will not apologize, no matter what the facts.

    It is, in principle, dangerous for civilian aircraft to fly everywhere, because the state people with their "infallible" aegis have flooded everything ...

    A September 11.09.2001, XNUMX For the first time in history, all civil aircraft were landed on the territory of the United States and Canada, ALL COUNTRIES, just in case, except for those that belonged to the police or performed medical flights; this has affected tens of thousands of passengers around the world. In the information chaos, there was the bitterness of the detention of suspects and information about false bombs and terrorist attacks.

    Where is the indignation, the actions of the dictatorial regime? And they are not, because everyone is intimidated and afraid of possible punishment. For in the arsenal of the empire of good and the media, and economic sanctions, and the army, and illegal prisons, and jackals with their hands up to their ears in blood ...
    And Lukashenka is already stupidly afraid, because I think he knows what they want to do with him, so health to you, cold sanity and patience ...

      In order to argue, you must clearly state the reason for the dispute.

      And the "redhead" will soon go to a rapprochement with ... not her, not with Russia. Unfortunately.

      And with whom is the redhead going to approach?

      PS If you are talking about China, forget it right away ..
