On Wednesday (17), President Vladimir Putin announced the mobilization of 300 a thousand reservists to fight in the conflict. According to the independent Belarusian newspaper Nasha Niva, the Lukashenko regime issued a verbal order to identify possible Russian reservists.

Since Wednesday, several have tried to flee to other countries, by car or plane, and Belarus, despite its proximity to the Kremlin ( allowed its territory to be used to invade northern Ukraine at the start of the war), is a potential escape route because there are no border controls between the two countries.

According to sources heard by Nasha Niva, this persecution consists of contacts with owners of properties rented by Russian citizens, monitoring of new cars with Russian license plates (which are being tracked) and verification of documents.

The Belarusian Telegram channel Maya Kraina Belarus, which, like Nasha Niva, was declared “extremist” by the Lukashenko’s regime, in formed that police officers at the airport in the capital, Minsk, also began monitoring men with Russian passports passing through the terminal.
