Teddy bears vs Belarus air defense

Teddy bears win!

Belarus' authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko has sacked two of the nation's top defense officials after two Swedish advertising agency employees piloted a light plane into the country's heavily guarded airspace, dropping 879 teddy bears decked out in parachutes and slogans supporting human rights.

Lukashenko has ruled Belarus, a nation of 10 million, since 1994, stifling dissent and independent media. He also has boasted about the capabilities of a joint air defense system that Belarus has formed with Russia.
