All American citizens currently residing in Belarus have been given a clear and stark warning – They need to leave immediately. The threat of Belarus entering the war in Ukraine puts Americans in the country at risk.
Mass American Evacuation
The United States is sounding the alarm, urging Americans in Belarus to evacuate immediately as a war in Ukraine casts shadows over the region.
The U.S. Embassy in Minsk issued a chilling advisory, revealing the perilous risks of staying in Belarus, “Do not travel to Belarus due to Belarusian authorities’ continued facilitation of Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine.”
The U.S. embassy delivered a stark message—Americans must leave Belarus immediately, with limited exit options via Lithuania, Latvia, or air travel.
The embassy cited the alarming effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and warned Americans of the dangerous buildup of Russian forces in Belarus.
Civil Unrest or Detention Risks
The embassy listed multiple risk factors, including enforcement of laws and the potential for detention and civil unrest.
The embassy raises the alarm about closed border crossings, warning that exit routes from Belarus are diminishing, leaving Americans trapped.
Members of the European Union, including Lithuania, Poland, and Latvia, contemplated shutting more border crossings.
A shocking revelation emerged—flights to London from Minsk skyrocketed to staggering prices, reaching as high as $10,000 with complicated layovers.
Arrests for Flights via Moscow
Flights via Moscow might seem tempting, but beware— arrests and threats await, causing the United States to advise against travel to Russia.
The United States issues grave advisories, cautioning against travel to or through Ukraine, as transportation to Ukraine remains extremely limited and dangerous.
A dark reality emerged as Americans must rely on themselves as U.S. government assistance may not be possible.
Belarus’ position on a map makes it a potential stage for Russian attacks on Ukraine from beyond Russia’s borders, raising dire concerns.
A Target for Russian Aggression
A nerve-wracking scenario emerged, pointing to the Suwalki Gap—a thin corridor between Poland and Lithuania—as a potential target for Russian aggression.
An expert warned of harrowing consequences as the Suwalki Gap’s capture could isolate the Baltic states from NATO, “were Putin to seize the [the Suwalki Gap], the three Baltic states would effectively be cut off from the rest of NATO.”
Expert Ian Brzezinski urged immediate action, advocating for NATO military exercises to take place at the gap immediately in preparation.
