Russia decided to boycott presidential elections in Belarus


The Central Electoral Commission of Russia decided not to send its representatives to the presidential elections in Belarus. The official reason for this step is the lack of an invitation from the Belarusian side and the opaque situation with the coronavirus pandemic in the country. Ella Pamfilova, chairman of the CEC of Russia, stated this.


Pamfilova also noted that the Russians will not be able to arrive in Belarus as part of the OSCE ODIHR (Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights) mission - the fact is that this organization received an invitation from Minsk too late.

In fact, it is highly probable that Russia decided to boycott the Belarusian presidential elections in connection with the scandalous statements that Alexander Lukashenko has been making lately - they are associated with the recent detention near Minsk of three dozen people in military camouflage associated with the Russian PMC Wagner ". According to the heads of Belarus, these people were specially sent to his country to unleash a "real massacre" in Minsk.

The sixth presidential elections in the country's modern history are scheduled for August 9. The preliminary voting, which started on 4 August, will end on 8 August. At the moment, five candidates are running for the post of President of the Republic of Belarus: Alexander Lukashenko, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, Anna Kanopatskaya, Andrey Dmitriev and Sergey Cherechen.

    It is impossible to imagine more betrayals by the clan ruling Russia, the elections in Belarus ...
    Russia must get rid of internal traitors and parasites, and most importantly, these are obvious enemies, then mutual understanding and the path to associations and unions will go ...

      Russia must get rid of internal traitors and parasites, and most importantly, these are obvious enemies, then mutual understanding and the path to associations and alliances will go ...

      Suppose traitors were shot, parasites were hanged, sympathizers in the Kolyma. What will change after that?
      Lukashenka will say - well, that's another matter, good we will unite. yes On what conditions?
      Will the new renewed power give the chairman everything he demands? So he will not need the union in this case. There is another option, to put Lukashenka on the Russian throne .... Other options will not suit him. request And then what to do? New renewed power at the expense? This is usually done. winked
      Something I doubt about the ancient proven method - there is no rain, so you have to make a sacrifice. This is a cargo cult of some kind. Maybe you just want to pour blood?

        G. Lukashenka has a last term, if, of course, everything goes as usual ... There is no sense or need to unite with Belarus ... The governments of both states should not shit on each other ... Only from the Russian side were unseemly steps taken ( Belkali and other attempts at the criminal seizure of leading enterprises by thieves-oligarchs of the Russian Federation) ... If the government of the Russian Federation loses the last ally, then such a government must be replaced ...

          I doubt that Kolenka hasn't grown up yet, and as always it doesn't work out anymore.

          There is neither sense nor need to unite with Belarus ...

          True? Maybe we should also divide Russia into smaller plots? If there is no sense and need for this, why should Alexander Grigorievich be pleased to broadcast about this for decades?

          The governments of both states should not shit on each other ... Only from the side of the Russian Federation were unseemly steps taken (Belkali and other attempts at the criminal seizure of leading enterprises by thieves-oligarchs of the Russian Federation) ...

          Is everything decorous and noble on the part of Belarus? We will not notice the sanction and support of the junta in Ukraine? Where are the new fish factories? Free fish have been scooped for decades, they promised to develop processing in our territory. Examples can still be found decently.

          If the government of the Russian Federation loses the last ally, then such a government must be changed ...

          And the government of Belarus does not need to be changed? Or are they not losing their last ally now? Or do you mean that Lukashenka, as an ally, refuses to commit, and we should not do this?

            If populists come, then Belarus is a direct road along the path of Ukraine, Moldova - this is the main problem ... G. Lukashenko in Belarus, V. Putin in the Russian Federation, the same problems ...

              If populists come, then Belarus is a straight road along the path of Ukraine, Moldova - this is the main problem ...

              And what to do with it? Pay extra to keep populists in check? Maybe the same Moldova and Ukraine to start paying?
              Any post-Soviet republic has its own "elite" who consider the country their cow and they are going to milk it on their own. A more or less zealous owner, a cow that regularly gives milk, will not sell. It's another matter if a cow is sick and gives almost no milk, then for a certain fee they are ready to sell it into good hands, where they will fatten and cure it, but if they offer a high price at the meat processing plant, then it will go there. We observe approximately the same picture. The main problem of integration is the opposition of local "shepherds". Our "elite" is no better in this regard, but in this case it is on our side. The Russian "Burenka" looks promising, they are not going to sell it and would gladly buy neighboring cows for their herd.

              G. Lukashenko in Belarus, V. Putin in the Russian Federation, the problems are the same ...

              Do we have the same problems? And what? If you mean "long reign", why not add to the Merkel comparison?

                Merkel is sitting out her last days, the order of leaving was announced two years ago and with German punctuality everything is going according to plan ... When there is something to milk, and Belarus has the industry and agriculture created by G. Lukashenko, it will be enough to steal for a five-year plan, the United States and others will to hold Belarus in close embrace, like Ukraine ... The prospect is gloomy, Armenia has already departed according to the "Georgian" scenario, only in Russia the media are silent ... That is why it is necessary to change both leaders with twenty years of rule - the pension is tired of waiting ...

                  Something about her Napoleonic plans, which she hadn't left before? How do you determine how old is normal?

                  When there is something to milk, and Belarus has the industry and agriculture created by G. Lukashenko, enough to plunder for a five-year plan, the United States and others will hold Belarus in close embrace, like Ukraine ...

                  They are milking it right now, and to steal it means they have already put it up for sale. If they offer the "blue-eyed" USA and others, it means that they will keep them and take them to the sauna ... like Ukraine.

                  The prospect is gloomy, Armenia has already departed according to the "Georgian" scenario, only in Russia the media are silent ...

                  Why are the media silent? Maybe you are selectively watching? Armenia, first of all, has not yet withdrawn. Secondly, maybe let him go if he wants to? And we will establish relations with Azerbaijan.

                  Therefore, to change both leaders with a twenty-year rule - the pension is tired of waiting ...

                  In Ukraine, they change regularly, in Italy, there was a time, they changed it almost once a month ... In the United States, everything is in order with the change, but the results are not impressive, you can find a lot of examples. I do not see a direct relationship between the regular replacement of management and the results of their activities.

              Name at least one candidate. Didn't I understand until now that all the "candidates" there are clowns, put forward by Lukashenka to show the Russian elite, who have no programs, no significant parties, no slogans for the people. Only fascist leaflets and praise of the methods of Adolf Aloizych. By saying that the most pro-Russian of all is Lukashenka himself? In order to be afraid of getting this idiot with a portrait of Hitler at her side, she made me take the newly revived pro-European dictator into fraternal embrace.

        It's much easier! Leave Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia alone. Do not meddle in their internal affairs - let them live their own lives, it will be easier for everyone. Would you argue that Russia does not interfere? There are 1001 proofs that this is not the case.

    And so you want to destroy the economy and enterprises of Belarus !? "So I want to eat, there is no place to spend the night." All these conflicts have been sucked out of thin air, just to frame Lukashenka and provoke him. Unfortunately, Lukashenka is malleable to provocations. After all, I must understand that this is a setup before the elections. He detained and released, and he began his game. Misbehaving.

    What if you put together the whole puzzle?
    I have a strong suspicion that Lukashenka did more than just make a mistake. He sold out with giblets. Yesterday I thought that this whole story was calculated for domestic consumption. But today there was also other information. That is why such a sharp reaction from Moscow.
    If my suspicions are correct and this whole story is a direct betrayal of Moscow, then Lukashenka is already toxic material for the Kremlin. There will be no more forgiveness.
    One can forget about fraternal or allied Belarus.
    For Russia, this is, if not a catastrophe, then a very painful blow. I often repeat that now the situation is in the spring of 1943. All the Baltic States, Belarus and Ukraine are under the enemy. Look at old maps and front lines from 1943. The only bright spot is Crimea and Kaliningrad.

      I strongly disagree. Not under the enemy, but together. And the stain is not the only one. All of Russia - isn't it bright and worthy? Has she become in any way flawed? The disadvantage of the country is not in territory and not in finances. The flaw is in people. There are many Jews here. Look at HOW they defend their homeland (for many - the New Homeland). Are we worse?

    Correct solution. "Elections" in Belarus? Choices between whom and whom? Between one ... and bogus, organized in a hurry, gathered in a handful, suddenly, without programs, ideas, but with slogans, more and more Nazi, the closer to the election date. As proof that any other fascist will be worse than this ..... It has already reached the point that Adolf became an example to follow. We arrived, as they say. I see this as a clear demonstration of Russia.
    The absence of observers, not participating in the discussion of candidates, gives Russia a free hand. Not participating in the Sabbath is a principle. As non-participation in the Maidan elections of Ukraine. Apparently, the script of the orgy was written in one office, and in handwriting.

    The Central Electoral Commission of Russia decided not to send its representatives to the presidential elections in Belarus.

    With two hands "FOR"! I welcome this decision. I hope that the leadership of the Russian Federation will be decisive enough to go to the end and not recognize the results of the elections, in which the Belarusian CIRC will declare the AHL.

        And to think - not destiny? Or nothing? NON-PARTICIPATION in outrages is the main thing. They simply took into account the mistake with the "elections" in Ukraine, actually recognizing Poroshenko. And then Zelensky. The indistinctness of politics allows the Sabbath to roam, soiling ourselves in indulgence.

          Non-participation has already been in Ukraine. I mean about the agreement with the German and French representatives about guarantees to Yanukovych in case of his actual removal from power. It was worth then to join this and give such a guarantee. Let me explain. If Russia gave guarantees (and as we know, they were violated by Germany and France), then Russia could independently take control of the situation at the request of Yanukovych (legally send troops to suppress the rebellion). What did it lead to?

            You are crazy. Yanukovych did not dare to carry out a police operation in one city - Kiev, substituting all his own under the guillotine, and what if he asked to introduce the Russian regular army? He signed some kind of agreement with European guarantors and immediately abandoned them. Believe a crook? For a former criminal, and a spineless brute, to get into a porridge in which we would now cook up to our nostrils in our own blood? Isn't it better to watch how Ukronazis are being killed by their own fellow citizens, helping them in their hard work? And what if the Crimeans categorically announced their accession to Russia, having held a referendum with SUCH results, and the Donbass people declared a status that no one could formulate, and as part of Ukraine? No, you have the devil ate your mind.

              Yanukovych asked for help from Russia after his removal. It was then that it was possible to bring in troops, although this is not the best way.
              Did not understand you. Who refused Yanukovych? As far as I remember, he called on these guarantors to influence the situation, but in response he was silent. After he asked for help from Russia.
              You state it quite logically, if not for a small discrepancy. The militias could have reached at least Kiev and further, but in that case, why were they stopped?
              I do not understand this "cunning plan". They outsmarted themselves and gave time to these Ukronazis to arm themselves.

                Yes, I'm right about the devil. The detached leader is a private person, nobody, and he is of no interest to anyone. Not for his former friends, not for his real enemies. What is the difference between a detached person and an unassigned person? Call upon, you are not our appointed, an army to suppress discontent somewhere in Mozambique. Will they run to execute? Boring with you. You make foolishness for stupidity.

                  Cleverly, you tried to get away from a direct answer. If everything was as you say, then why stop the militia? In order to create a long-term conflict in which both sides will destroy each other? So this is the main goal?

        Are you able to chop off only one area (as you said)? Are they incapable of more? Don't you know how to act differently? All of Belarus will have to be taken under control. And this moment had to come sooner or later. It's like a moment of truth. So let's see what kind of allies you are of the people of Belarus. Luke doesn't count.

    The main thing is that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has time to express its concerns and Zakharova danced the Kalinka, and the guarantor had time to strike first, although, perhaps, he is not the first, he has not yet been cornered. Well, the Wagnerites themselves are to blame, no one asked them to help Donbass, they did it voluntarily, at the call of their soul.

      What is happiness? This is to want to go to the toilet and run. You didn't reach. In light of recent reports, there was no Wagner there, no RUSSIA business travelers. There was, as always, an idiotically executed special operation by the SBU. Keep running. Maybe you can still learn to keep up.

    Russia has decided to boycott the presidential elections in Belarus.

    All that remains is not to recognize the election results in advance, to declare them a coup d'etat, to call them the "Zmagar junta."
    Then, shoot yourself in the foot.

        Losing the last ally is not even shooting in the leg. Higher.))))
