If Belarus was NATO member, we’d have made a contribution given our population size and resources. During Soviet era, Belarusian 103rd airborne division was stationed in Kabul during Soviet-Afghan war in the 80s There was  one other airborne division stationed in Kandahar.  103rd was the main division in Afghanistan. There many videos and documentaries on the Internet. We kept the battle flag, awards and traditions.

I am disappointed the 103rd brigade in which I served didn’t help Ukraine to protect its territory. If our division served , we’d have made the difference in Donetsk and Luhansk. But our government wanted remain neutral.

On the other hand, I won’t be able  to fight people of Donetsk. They are russified Ukrainians leaning towards Russia. But they are our Slavic brothesr and sisters.
