The decision remains to be approved by parliament, which is taken for granted. The force command is expected to last 180 days. The mission was decided at the request of Warsaw.

The Czech Republic participates, together with Hungary, Slovakia and Poland, in the so-called Visegrad team.

The West has recently accused the Belarussian regime under President Alexander Lukashenko of orchestrating the current immigration crisis in retaliation for the European Union’s imposition of sanctions on Minsk over its crackdown on dissent. Minsk denies it.
