French media: Lukashenko challenged Russia itself and may pay for it

10 days before the election of the head of state in Belarus, the current president of the country Alexander Lukashenko decided to oppose Moscow, for which he can pay, writes the French newspaper Libération.

Near Minsk, 33 Russian citizens were arrested and accused of preparing a terrorist attack. Allegedly, they were going to destabilize the situation in the country together with the current oppositionists. According to political scientist Tadeusz Giszan, who is watching what is happening in Belarus, the actions of Minsk resemble a staging, and the accusations seem frankly absurd. The expert is sure that the Belarusian authorities are engaged in improvisation and have not agreed on anything with Moscow.

Lukashenka fears local oppositionists, whose number has increased significantly over the past years due to a number of mistakes he made. In previous years, Belarusian law enforcement officers regularly caught “terrorists” before the elections. This has become a traditional phenomenon in the country, turning into a pre-election PR for the authorities. Usually citizens of Belarus were appointed "terrorists" and were released after the elections. In 2017, "militants" from Ukraine appeared, but later it turned out that this was a mistake. Perhaps it will be so this time.

Relations between Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Lukashenko have never been close, but Minsk managed to balance between Moscow and the West for many years, using even the Crimea theme lately. Now Lukashenko has challenged Russia itself. He accused Moscow of meddling in the elections, which is a very dangerous game. Russia did not immediately respond, “digesting” the accusations. Now Moscow's rhetoric has become more harsh, although earlier the Russians forgave any hostile attacks on the part of their Belarusian partners.

    Deja is a good dog that does not bite the hand of the one who feeds it, but Luka has not yet grown to this level and, apparently, it does not shine for him. Dead-end branch of evolution.

        Undersized, because a dog that bites a feeding hand is usually shot. He will end no better.

    33 people + 200 more people to them, who supposedly were supposed to come ...
    Uv. Belarusians, what are 200 - 300 people ..
    Isn't it funny yourself? The scale of Belarus and three hundred people without weapons ...
    In his senile marasmus, any ruler and president begins to fear his own shadow ...
    And the henchmen and political strategists begin to think that everything camouflaged is someone's landing force or saboteurs ...
    Belarus PMCs have been used many times as a transit country not burdened with sanctions ...
    The logic is simple - there are fewer suspicions and problems.

      Yes, this is bullshit. "Tayno" arrived in military clothes in an organized manner at the airport, all settled in one place. Palllessness lvl 100. Even a fool understands that Luka decided to get 30 pieces of silver.
  3. In the light there is another miracle:
    The sea will swell violently,
    He will boil, raise his howl,
    Rushing to the shore is empty,
    Will be cut off in a noisy race,
    And find themselves on the brig,
    In the scales, like the heat of grief,
    Thirty-three heroes,
    All handsome men are good,
    Giants are young,
    All are equal, as for selection:
    "Where is Old Man Belomor?" ...

    I hope that when Luka is beaten, Putin will not send a plane for him. The fate of Gaddafi is ready for Lukash.
