Bloomberg: Putin tried to convince Lukashenko to create a superpower

There is nothing easier for a well-known agency than presenting their speculations to the reader: it is enough to simply refer to unnamed "sources".

That's exactly what the Bloomberg agency did, telling in one of the articles that Russian President Vladimir Putin tried several times to convince the head of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, to create a "superpower".

According to the authors of the material, they became aware of this from two sources in the Kremlin who claim that Vladimir Putin expects to become the leader of the new Union State and thus retain power after his presidential term ends.

At the same time, the editorial office claims that Lukashenko categorically refused this scenario.

It's pretty funny when a world-class publication so frankly lowers its readers to the level of a kindergarten preparatory group, using a primitive, in fact, trick.

This is by no means the first time that smart-minded journalists are trying to predict what Vladimir Putin will do in view of the end of his fourth presidential term in 2024.

However, you can be sure that any decision by the current head of state will be aimed at ensuring that Russia remains a country with whose interests the world is forced to reckon with.

    Ordinary Russians are not cold and not hot from a superpower. It’s more important that it’s in the refrigerator and how much it will come to the card on the day of salary. Everything else to calm the boobies, watching from nothing to do with the international situation. laughing Speaking of association. Generally not against. If only not at our expense. And they didn’t think of sculpting a showcase. Here, they say, look how they felt good. Only on general grounds.

    All the former lands of Tsarist Russia will enter the orbit, or borders of modern Russia, over time. And this will happen after the next military conflict directed against Russia. This has always been the case in the past 1000 years. NATO is a kindergarten against the Mongol-Tatars. Time has passed, and where is the Golden Horde? Almost all in orbit, or the borders of the USSR, and then Russia.

    Everyone understands that Putin is trying hard to stay in power after 2024. He understands that otherwise only a terrible death awaits him for his failed domestic and foreign policy. Indeed, it was thanks to him that Russia turned into a country with which not only the powers that be, but even mongrels like Poland and Ukraine are not reckoned with. The transformation of fraternal Belarus into an enemy is also entirely on his conscience.

      You yourself voted for this power in 2018. And now Hayate. In the 90s, people like the "red cockroach" Chubais were allowed into power, and now you cannot extinct them. And in Soviet times there was always a "shadow government", but those were more reasonable, since the Great Patriotic War went through.

      Your former, racially correct-faced Prime Minister Tony Abbott threatened to take Putin by the breast. And it all ended with a haze hanging over him from the vitamins he released. This Australopithecus was going to take by the chest the holder of the black belt in judo. Your Australia, Yuri Gennadievich, is mentioned a hundred times less often than "mongrels like Poland and Ukraine." You only spoil the air in the choir of the same performers. And on your own, sorry, your voice is very weak.

    - Personally, I already wrote that Putin is going to become Nazarbayev ...
    - Ie Having voluntarily removed himself from the official state power - to become an omnipotent "gray eminence" ... - For this, he would even voluntarily resign from his post, without waiting for the end of the presidential term ...
    - But with Lukashenko it is impossible to become a "gray cardinal" - he is constantly getting underfoot, forcing Russia to sink to its earthly Belarusian problems ... - it is not "cardinal's business" ... to communicate with him; but you constantly have to ...
    - And Russia already has problems above the roof ... - New Russia, tired of expecting something radical from Russia; Syria, where full of seams and confusion; a serious ripening conflict with Turkey, which could end quite unpredictably for Russia: Gazprom’s failed pipeline policy and still stagnating Russian industry and the entire Russian economy ...
    - So it will take at least a year or two, or even three, to "write off" all this (move the arrows) to the new Prime Minister Mishutin ... And only then ... - already apply to the "gray cardinals" .. ...
