Belarus refused to get hung up on cooperation with Russia

Given the Treaty on the Union of Belarus and Russia, which has been in force since 1997, individual statements by official Minsk look rather contradictory.

According to the Belarusian state agency BELTA, Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said that the republic will not get hung up on cooperation with Russia.

The agency quotes the head of the Belarus Foreign Ministry:

Belarus will move in the direction that will correspond to its national interests. Our principled position is that we cannot and should not be friends with someone to the detriment of someone or against someone.

In his statement, the main Belarusian diplomat noted that cooperation with Russia is valuable for Belarus, but it does not need to "go in cycles", but, on the contrary, it is necessary to "diversify" international relations.

It would be quite interesting to find out where the head of the Belarusian diplomatic department sees the line that divides the “brotherly people”, which should ensure that the republic’s budget is full and the need for “diversification” of relations with its cheap oil?

Let's hope that with such statements Makei was just trying to “weight up” the position of the Belarusian leadership before the meeting of the two presidents to be held tomorrow.

    cooperation with Russia is valuable for Belarus, but there is no need to "go in cycles" on it

    As soon as Russia stopped giving, there was no need to get hung up right away and cooperation was only one gate - Belarusian. In no way and never did Belarus support Russia, from her there was always one word "give" and more. And if it seemed to Lukashenka that they gave little, he would immediately throw hysterics, shouting that he would stop making friends with us and leave for the West. What can I say. They fiddled with him for a very long time. They indulged him, gave him, and now let him go wherever he wants, go there, just need to warn him - then let him not fly to us with suitcases by helicopter, like Yanukovych.

    This is the "moment of truth," as Vladimir Osipovich Bogomolov, a former frontline intelligence officer, would say.
    The “gray cardinal” apparently decided that Lukashenka’s authority “among the people” had already been undermined enough and it’s time to get out “from the shadows” into “news frontmen” in order to have time to “unwind” more in the eyes of the public and run for the next presidential election ?! winked
    His "working" euphemism "diversification of international relations" is a crude verbal disguise of the same pro-Western "cunning" position of "lovingly sucking calf" short between chairs and folders winked which ruined (essentially the same ones as Lukashenko and Makei) of the Ukrainian Judeo-Mazepinians Yanukovych and Azarov. request

    Tired of the idle talk and importunity of politicians in Belarus.

    At such a pace, it seems to me that Klitschko may have a competitor with his masterpiece:

    And today, tomorrow, not everyone can watch. Rather, not only everyone can watch, few can do it

    Our principled position is that we cannot and should not be friends with someone to the detriment of someone or against someone

    In Russian, it sounds like this:

    I will not be friends with you, because that uncle doesn’t like it ...

    Cowardice or stupidity?

      Substitution and instrumentalization of concepts. bully It is also encountered in private life quite often, especially when it comes to money or any other preferences. More precisely, this would be called the "necessary" acquaintance with someone who has a certain resource / s.
      But this does not attract friendship, friendship is disinterested and today the thing is very scarce.

    It is possible, of course, as in most comments, to determine the vector of Belarus' movement to an address that is very popular in Russia. At the same time, declare in the spirit of Polykhaev - the hero of the novel by Ilya Fainzilberg and Yevgeny Petrov: "I won't give beds, and washbasins!" You can, but not from a big, sorry, mind. This is not about Lukashenka or Makeia. The main question is where will Belarus go - to Europe or Russia? The cards were laid down so that batski has zugzwang. Whether you like it or not, you need to signal Moscow, something like SOS, like "Forgive us, Leopold!" Otherwise, you will not be in power. That, taking into account the official psychiatric diagnosis of Alexander Grigorievich, it is like death. Therefore, it is very likely that the Russian Federation will support Lukashenko. Despite all his demarches and insults to the Kremlin. Then there will be a pause and he will leave, with the filing of GDP. In an amicable way. The idea of ​​sitting on two chairs is multi-vector - that is, it has outlived its usefulness. As for me, it is rational and reasonable. Better than closing the ring of enemies in northwest Russia. She is already in a very, to put it mildly, unfriendly environment.
