The invasion of Ukraine is such a blantant unproked act of aggression, that is would seem no country on our planet would support Putin’s war. But, three countries have, Belarus, Iran and Chechnya. And I suspect others will follow, such as Syria and North Korea. Other countries will simply look the other way, such as India, China and UAE, which abstained when a vote was taken in the UN Security Council.
Chechnya and Belarus are essentially corrupt puppet regimes of Putin. Currently, Chechnya is now under the rule of its Russian-appointed dictator, Ramzan Kadyrov, with no respect for human rights and will plunder his country just like multi-billionaire Putin (see links). Belarus president . Alexander Lukascheko won his sixth term in office in 2020 in a rigged election (links below).
No need to go into detail on Syria’s and North Korea’s presidents. They have little respect for international law. Iran is a supporter of terrorism, in Iraq and Lebonon.
We shall see after the General Assembly votes today, which other countries support the invasion of Ukraine and which ones would prefer to look the other way. As members vote, the war will rage on.
The news is filled with the 40 mile long convoy of Russian tanks and armored vehicles, all headed to Kyiv. Today could be the bloodiest day of all. My prayers go to the brave Ukrainians as they defend their country.
Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus
Ramzan Kadyrov, President of Chechbya

One thought on “Friends of Putin”
The vote to condemn the Russian invasion in the General Assembly, was a non-binding resolution. It passed with 141 countries in favor, 35 abstentions, and 5 opposed the resolution. Against the resolution were Belarus, Syria and North Korea (all corrupt dictatorships) and Eritrea (a bit of a surprise). But Eritrea has a worse human rights violator than North Korea. According to Wikipedia, “In June 2016, a 500-page United Nations Human Rights Council report accused Eritrea’s government of extrajudicial executions, torture, indefinitely prolonged national service (6.5 years on average) and forced labour, and indicated that sexual harassment, rape and sexual servitude by state officials are also widespread.” Both Iran and Venezuela abstained, even though their strong hatred for the US and western allies. India and China also abstained.
