“There is no limit to Putin's cunning”: Belarus reveals the goals of distributing Russian passports


Minsk’s independence from Moscow is very worrying for the United States. The Belarusian version of the Radio Liberty edition, funded, as you know, by the US Congress, exposed another “cunning Putin plan” aimed at creating the “fifth column of the Kremlin” in the Republic.


What gives grounds for “fighters for democratic values ​​and institutions” to draw such far-reaching conclusions?

As you know, President Putin signed a law that greatly simplifies obtaining citizenship of the Russian Federation to persons who previously had a USSR passport. Now, to obtain Russian citizenship, you do not need to give up your (for example, Ukrainian or Belarusian), live in our country for three years and have a proven source of income. Indeed, now getting a red passport with a double-headed eagle has become easier than before.

Why this is done right now is easy to understand. Our country is still experiencing problems with depopulation: mortality exceeds birth rates, despite active measures of state support for the latter. The population continues to decline by several hundred thousand people a year. UN official forecasts on this score are very pessimistic. Depopulation affects the shortage of workers. As the Belarusian version of Radio Liberty points out, among Russian men of working age, mortality is ten times higher than in Europe, and for women four times. Emigration and brain drain exacerbate this negative trend. The authorities make up for the shortage of labor at the expense of migrants from neighboring countries.

The publication indignantly notes that Russia intends to tackle demographic and economic problems at the expense of neighbors, primarily Ukraine and Belarus. According to him, Ukrainians and Belarusians, seduced by Russian salaries and “free” passports, will leave their homeland, and among them will be highly skilled workers. Why holding similar policy The USA or EU countries do not cause such a negative in Radio Liberty, it is unclear.

Everything would be fine, but the perspicacious journalists of the Belarusian edition saw an indispensable “cunning plan”, according to which Putin intends to strengthen the Kremlin’s control over the post-Soviet space. They cite South Ossetia as an example, whose residents received Russian passports, which gave rise to intervene in 2008 in response to Georgian aggression. A similar distribution of passports is now carried out in unrecognized DNI and LC. Further, Radio Liberty depicts how Minsk’s independence could suffer from this.

According to official data for 2015, over 470 thousand Belarusians worked in Russia, in reality, much more. Having received passports with a double-headed eagle without any problems, they can lose their jobs due to the economic downturn and begin to return home by representatives of the “fifth column”:

Imagine a situation between Belarus and Russia, a conflict begins, similar to the one that happened between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. This is not hard to imagine, especially now. And Moscow will decide to put pressure on Minsk, using its citizens. For example, it may threaten to create something like “DPR” and “LPR” in the Belarusian version. Which side will people with dual citizenship be on?

What a twist. There is no limit to the “geopolitical treachery” of Vladimir Putin. It is hoped that at least some conclusions from the practice of creating "unrecognized republics" are drawn, and in case of conflict the issue will be resolved immediately and directly with Minsk. This is a joke, of course. Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians need to be friends, to prevent international conflicts between our countries and to resolve all problems through negotiations.

Much more curious are the “recipes” that Radio Liberty promotes in order to prevent “Russian expansion”. Among them, the formation of “Belarusian patriotism” and “national identity” are all the prerequisites that led to the Ukrainian Maidan. Finishes the publication with a sad conclusion:

The current regime is hardly capable of this.

This is Alexander Grigoryevich, who wants to be friends with the West and uphold "democratic institutions", note.

    The problem is solved very simply, the leadership of Belarus needs everyone, especially their citizens to prove independence is more profitable than unification with anyone. Take Switzerland, there are many citizens with dual citizenship. No need to repeat the mistakes of the USSR, when people were kept by force in the country, they were not allowed to leave anyone.

      And who did they keep this in the country by force, do you mean the "fifth column", those who considered my country a "prison of nations"? So they moved away from here during the time of Gorbachev, but for some reason many of them returned back to the country they hated ... Well, now, you hating Russia, why don’t you scatter your longed-for Europe, England, America, when Now all the roads are open for you there, but you live in Russia, and here you spoil it. There are so many people like you who have fled from here to a European paradise, now rushed back to Russia, this "prison of peoples", with their children and households, to save their own skin, and not die there from the coronavirus and other nasty things, with a cry - Russia, help.

      And who is kept forcibly, who is not allowed to leave?
      According to the tradition that has been established not so long ago, those who do not want to go anywhere, professional wrestlers with “cut” speak more and more about the ban.

    The problem is not that they are not going to Russia, they are going the same way. According to the UN, for 2019, there are 50 million migrants to the United States, Saudi Arabia and Germany - 13 million each, Russia in 4th place - 12 million.
    The problem is that they also come from Russia, during the same year 10 million Russians left to work abroad, more than only Chinese - 11 million, Mexicans - 12 million, well,
    most Indians work abroad - 18 million
    Simplified citizenship may be a step in the right direction, but this is clearly not enough.

    In general, the maintenance of territories that are not part of the state at the expense of taxpayers is immoral.

    As you know, President Putin signed the law, significantly simplifying the acquisition of citizenship of the Russian Federation by persons who previously had a USSR passport. Now, to obtain Russian citizenship, you do not need to give up your (for example, Ukrainian or Belarusian), live in our country for three years and have a proven source of income. Indeed, now getting a red passport with a double-headed eagle has become easier than before.

    That is, residents of the "independent" and "sovereign" post-Soviet "states" who previously had a USSR passport and still not having entered the citizenship of these "states". After all, it is somehow formulated in the decree ?!
    And the citizens of Belarus to obtain citizenship of the Russian Federation also need to have a residence permit in Russia ?! But yes, now, having a Russian residence permit, you do not need a residence qualification of 3 years and have a proven source of income ...
    So the American "Radio Liberty", in its usual way, "escalates the situation" of frenzied anti-Russian people (as these Fashington goebbelsuhs used to frenzied frantic anti-Soviet!), tricks and distorts counting on uncritically minded inhabitants - it’s far from easy for former USSR passport holders and Belarusian citizens to obtain Russian citizenship, although the current decree makes this procedure easier!

    In principle, I am glad that in Russia, the Russian authorities, the volens-nolens, now, pretty "pecked by a roast cock (bald eagle)", began to remember more about the Russians, the largest divided people in Eurasia, and are trying to somehow collect millions of us, lost in 1991, to a heap, so that everyone, in the face of a common danger, to act together (Otto von Bismarck compared us Russians with droplets of mercury that always merge together, even if they were artificially scattered winked)! good
    Let's hope that the Collector of Russian Lands V.V. Putin, as in the recent history before him only I.V. Stalin, will be able to do this. wink

    And, Russia gives out passports about once a year.

    But while on the street there are already many people from Asian republics. Cashiers, sellers, builders, waiters, workers, housing and communal services, this summer and at the IFC noticed poorly speaking ....

        - it remains to add the cynical: "Come along!" They are people close to us, we have a common centuries-old history - you are a "legal journalist", you need to know this.

        Sergey, all this, of course, okay (about hairdressing salons) ... That's what bothered me in your article:

        They cite South Ossetia as an example, whose residents received Russian passports, which gave rise to intervene in 2008 in response to Georgian aggression.

        Why didn’t you indicate that the REASON for the intervention in the Georgian aggression of the Russian Federation was the KILLING of OUR PEACEKEEPERS, and not the fact of aggression per se? Or do you think that the American edition said everything correctly? Well, with the same success today, we can intervene in the genocide of the "Ukrainian" government against our citizens in the Donbass! Indeed, now there are OUR citizens over 300.

    In my opinion, that from Ukraine, that from Belarus, that from other republics, let the Russian-speaking people come, transport families and live to their health. This will save many not only from economic, but also linguistic and other problems.

    Well, to believe in “Freedom” - disrespect yourself.
