Protection from Russian occupiers: why Poland should be ready for an uprising in Belarus
General and ex-Deputy Minister of Defense of Poland Waldemar Skrzypczak suggested that a popular uprising could start in Belarus. Poland should support the Belarusian opposition, because after the death of the self-proclaimed President Alexander Lukashenko, Russia wants to occupy Belarus.
This opinionChannel 24 was voiced by political strategist Mikhail Sheitelman. According to him, Russia has shown that after Lukashenka's death it plans to choose who to put in the presidency.
Tikhanovskaya should take the presidency
Sheitelman suggested what scenario Skshipchak had in mind. In the event of Lukashenka's death, oppositionist Svetlana Tikhanovskaya and her team should come to Minsk, come to the presidential administration and take the chair of the leader of Belarus.
As the political consultant noted, Tikhanovskaya will be defended by the Belarusian regiment of the Kalinouski Armed Forces of Ukraine and other Belarusian fighters. The army of Belarus will immediately take the side of the opposition, because Lukashenka will be dead, and the dictator will have no successor.
Lukashenka is not recognized by anyone. Suddenly President Tikhanovskaya appears. Prior to that, she was not formally recognized, but if she sits in this chair, she will be recognized by the countries of the West. The situation is different in Belarus and Russia. Belarusians have a potential president who was legally elected in the elections,” he said.

Poland will defend Belarus from Russia
Mikhail Sheitelman is convinced that Poland will defend Belarus from Russian invaders. Kremlin speaker Dmitry Peskov has already reacted to the statement of the Polish general. This suggests that Russia wants to occupy Belarus after Lukashenka's death.
Indeed, Belarus will need to be protected from the Russians. Russia considers Belarus as its colony. They want to decide who to put in president. Poland's warnings turned out to be correct. Russia “burned out” that it has a plan to occupy Belarus in the event of Lukashenko's removal from power, the political consultant believes.
Assumption of an uprising in Belarus
- General and former Deputy Minister of Defense Waldemar Skrzypchak is convinced that a popular uprising will take place in Belarus. He stated that Poland should support the units that will carry out the operation against Lukashenka. It is the armed Belarusians who are fighting against Russia in Ukraine that can start an uprising in the state.
- According to the general, this uprising, which the troops can start, will also be supported by the Belarusian people. At the same time, the power of the self-proclaimed president does not have sufficient military capacity to prevent a popular uprising. Russia will not be able to help either.
- The aggressor country has already reacted to this statement. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia would “liberate” Belarus if the people rise up against Lukashenka. He also did not forget to call Poland an enemy state, which allegedly “is literally in hysterics of Russophobia.”
