*Belarus confirms teddy bear air drop

Belarus has finally confirmed that an airplane “invaded” its territory earlier in July to drop a payload of teddy bears holding signs promoting free speech, infuriating a regime often known as “Europe’s last dictatorship”.

Confirmation came on Thursday from Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko at a meeting on the modernisation of the country’s armed forces, according to Russian news agency Interfax. “This plane was discovered in time, but why didn’t the senior officials stop the flight?” asked Lukashenko. “Where did the fault lie? In these bungling officials or some error in the airspace control system?”

*Generals fired over teddy bear invasion

President Alexander Lukashenko dismissed the country’s top border control official and the top air force commander after the July 4 incident, in which a biplane flew over the border from Lithuania to airdrop the stuffed toys.

The bears were attached to little parachutes and held signs calling for freedom of speech and human rights.

“The chairman of the State Border Committee Major General Igor Rachkovsky and Air Force and Air Defence Commander Major General Dmitry Pakhmelkin are dismissed from their posts for inadequately carrying out their duties,” the president’s office said.
