An attempt at provocation during the speech of the Belarusian delegation at the Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) turned into a curiosity with a call to “remove the rag” and not interfere with the broadcast. The video of the incident on February 23 was posted by the Telegram channel Sputnik Near Abroad.
On the recording, a delegate from Belarus reads out a speech, but suddenly several activists with the flag of Ukraine in their hands walk behind him and try to unfold the yellow and blue flag.
The Belarusian diplomat, not paying attention to what is happening, continues his speech, while other participants in the session called on the activists to “remove the rag” and not interfere with the meeting.
