The Kremlin publication of RIA Novosti published, to its credit, a fairly good infographics about the routes by which migrants get to Belarus. But there is a nuance…
At the 15th second, the publication shows routes from Syrian Damascus to Belarus through Dubai, Moscow and Beirut. Only at the end of September, we published an investigation, where we confirmed that the private Syrian airline Cham Wings Airlines operates direct flights from Damascus to Minsk. Since September 10, it has been transferring about 400 migrants a week to the Belarusian capital.
Why didn’t the Kremlin publication show this flight? Maybe the fact is that Cham Wings Airlines is involved in the transportation of weapons and militants of the PMC «Wagner». The investigation into this was previously published by Reuters. Cham Wings Airlines transported Russian mercenaries from Rostov-on-Don to Syria to support the Assad regime.
