"This gap is final": the expert assessed Lukashenka's statements about Russia

Statements of the Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko that Belarusians and Russians have ceased to be fraternal peoples, and have become only gas and trade allies, is flawed and means a break political the authorities of the two countries. This point of view was expressed by political scientist Ilya Grashchenkov in an interview with the Belarusian information resource "Euroradio".

The leader of Belarus began to make such harsh speeches after the arrest in his country of 33 soldiers of the Russian PMC "Wagner".

Belarus is now for Russia similar to Ukraine - it is also, in spite of everything, one of our main economic partners. But politically Kiev is Moscow's second enemy after Washington. Therefore, the official Minsk can become a real enemy for the Kremlin. This gap is final. But this will not affect relations between peoples.

- noted Grashchenkov, recalling also that 80 percent of the Belarusian economy is focused on Russia.

It was difficult to predict such a dramatic change in relations between the two states - until recently, both presidents played hockey and talked about the Union State. The publicist Anatoly Wasserman believes that Lukashenko is now repeating the mistakes of Yanukovych, who flirted with local nationalists - while the Belarusian leader is losing his pro-Russian electorate.

Most likely, Lukashenka will win the elections. But the fact that he is now trying to play into the hands of the anti-Russian forces may be dangerous for him personally. Probably, the President of Belarus became a victim of a pro-Western encirclement - something similar happened with Yanukovych. Maidan can also be organized against Lukashenka

- emphasized Wasserman.

    When America needs an ally against China, it will surrender to Moscow all the Eurolimitrophs with their giblets, without hesitation. This has happened more than once. And annoying dictators are usually eliminated by the CIA.

      Correctly noted, in a big game, pawns are sacrificed ... Only amendments are needed, in Belarus the enemies put everything on the presidential elections (the decisive assault), on their protege and against Lukashenko, therefore the meanness is innumerable, including those from compradors in power in the Russian Federation. .. Note: Russia is losing allies and friends, it has lost almost everyone whose merit - the compradors in power in Russia - are essentially anti-Russian forces ...

          So Emperor A-2 allowed representatives of the clan of Germany to reign in Bulgaria (why - bribes and the influence of pro-German forces at court), so such a German tsar reoriented Bulgaria to pro-German and against Russia (history needs to be studied) ...

        For a start, it's a good idea to decide who these lost friends and allies are? And, of course, Russia is to blame for everything. belay Directly some kind of "new-Ukrainian" approach, Moscow is to blame for everything. laughing Maybe they themselves wanted to get lost and did a lot for this?

    But relations between peoples will not be affected.

    .... Well, yes, well, yes, that's just in Ukraine, even those who were once Russians, I'm not talking about Galicians and Ukrainians, have become fierce haters of Russia, who are now killing their fellow brothers in Donbas - for 30 years, you can brainwash anyone with Bandera and Ukronazism, and make them into a sort of Ukrainian Mamluk. And Belarus is full of its own Natsiks, "zmagarei" and "Litvin", who also fiercely hate Russia and its people, and nothing else can be expected from them except hatred for us. But Lukashenka, as they say, went for broke - to the end and with a win, and apparently, he has good reason for this on someone's outside help, otherwise he would not have dared to make such a speech. Well, as they say, we will look at after the elections, and what our "guarantor" will give us in response to Lukashenka's threats - can we really swallow again ...

      Is it not clear that for ten years the "guarantor" is only a screen for others, according to the majority of liberal thieves, and politics: surrender everything, rob everything and escape with billions a minute before the collapse of Russia ... They will, of course, be thanked for surrendering the interests of Russia, like Gorbachev, Kozyrev, Kalugin and others ...

    People! What is it? After all, the bald man considers this fascist Minsk cattle a "friend"! He considers the enemy of Russia "FRIEND"! But is Putin himself a friend of Russia if he chooses THIS beast as his friend? It is necessary to check the FSB of Russia, Putin, for "loyalty to the people of Russia and Russia itself"! It seems to me that this is treason!
