Alternative Version Of Who May Be Behind The Minsk Special Operation

On May 23, a plane of RyanAir airlines flying from the Athens to Vilnius carried out an emergency landing at the Minsk airport, following a bomb alert. This is widely claimed to be a special operation ordered by President Alexandr Lukashenko aimed at arrest of one of opposition figures Roman Pratasevich, who was on board.

Lukashenko Lashes Out After BBC & Others Admit Detained Activist’s Ukrainian Azov Battalion Ties

Belarus’ long time leader Alexander Lukashenko has spoken out on Wednesday over the Ryanair diverted flight saga, pushing back against widespread accusations coming from the former Soviet satellite country’s opposition but especially Western leaders that his security services engaged in “state hijacking” of the airliner carrying activist and blogger Roman Protasevich.

‘They say code is red’: transcript of controller telling plane to land in Minsk

A Ryanair pilot who landed his plane in Belarus on Sunday repeatedly questioned information about an alleged bomb threat, before ultimately agreeing to land in Minsk, according to a transcript released on Tuesday by authorities in Belarus. Belarus scrambled a warplane to escort the flight, which was en route from Greece to Lithuania.

Vlad and Luka had a great time in Sotchi with lots of grins and laughs. I think i have a hunch what they were laughing about.

Thanks for drawing our attention to this, Duran. Most interesting. It’s certainly a plausible explanation. The incident was perfectly timed for the western neocons to exploit, as these stories always seem to be. It should be a lesson to all those employed by these people that they can find themselves ditched at any time if their controllers think this can serve their purpose. It may well be that Navalny is in the same boat.

After thinking about it, I am inclined to agree with Alex that the theory that Protasevich may have been found expendable and was thrown under the bus seems credible. Since the days of Reagan’s dirty wars, the US was in the habit of protecting its stooges. We also know that every Big Wig behind efforts to overturn the Venezuelan government were routinely supplied to US visas, so that they would have a safe and quick escape in case they failed. The city of Miami is filled with mansions now owned by these people. But when the Bolivian coup failed, the… Read more »

Alex C,
Were you trying to tease out a comparison between Protasevich and the White Helmets, when you mentioned the BBC’s coverage?

I think theWest bent over backwards to save the White Helmets. Remember that supine Hollywood bigwig George Cloony made a full-length documentary about the White Helmets terrorist mercenaries, glorifying it as super heroes, and the equally supine members of the Academy of Arts and Sciences awarded it its biggest prize, the Oscar. The creator of the White Helmets, a Brit, has since committed suicide. Not surprised the BBC covered the WH in a big way, as they were one of the UK’s major contributions to the Usraeli effort “Assad Must Go.” So with Clooney’s and the Academy’s help, the White… Read more »

The saying goes, “Nobody is indispensable”. The US has decided, Protasevich is dispensed with. Let’s hope he doesn’t find any Novichok or polonium when the Russians let him go.

It appears that the girlfriend of Protasevich was also aware of the plan to discard him 🙂

I think Alex is right about Protasevich being expendable and pushed under a bus. Kissinger once said “To be an enemy of America can be dangerous, but to be a friend is fatal.”
Empires have no friends only servants.

Are you suggesting that the BBC is complicit in misleading the public?

You people have no breeding and you watch too much TV drama.

How dare you suggest that the BBC drama department are part of the

insane false flag conspiracy!

Obviously this plot was a CIA-RFERL script.

The BBC is innocent, totally innocent.

Lufthansa is very annoyed, the BBC should not meddle in EU affairs.

Perish the thought that the BBC is, and always has been, the Town Crier of the puppet masters who control the UK.

The red flag to me was the ‘Hamas’ meme. It’s not even remotely plausible, and that coupled with the indecent haste of the EU/US/UK clowns ( as always ) to immediately find the ‘victim’ guilty within a few hours is yet more proof of a dastardly plot that mimics comic books and Hollywood propaganda.

I think you should look at the particular flight plan exactly where and for how long it would take to transit Belarus. Then….where would the MIGtake off from….how long to scramble and synchronise with theRyanair plane…..allowing for all this sufficiently before the border and to change to Minsk. It is not clear when the MIG met the plane..after the pilot agreed to divert..plane immediately turned to Minsk….or waited until MIG arrived…or MIG met it on the way to Minsk Now if a MIG is always in the air on patrol or had to be in the air before Ryan transited… Read more »

Well….moon alabama article 31 May seems to provide info that the MIG was scrambled only after the 14 min discussion to conform diversion was taken…….still be interesting to know from where…scramble time and time to meet plane….seeing as the flight path appears to be quite close to the border… I have seen a reference to a holding path though…..
