Lukashenko headed for rapprochement with Ukraine

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has set a course for a noticeable rapprochement with Ukraine and the West, this is the opinion of Alexei Pushkov, chairman of the ad hoc committee of the Federation Council of Russia on information policy and interaction with the media.

Senator told the newspaper "Sight"that Minsk, having invited not only the Prosecutor General of Russia, but also his colleague from Ukraine to investigate the 33 Russians detained on the territory of Belarus, has demonstrated that it is ready to play on the side of the forces opposing Moscow. In fact, Lukashenko sent a signal to Ukraine, the European Union and the United States that he is ready for closer relations, increasing the level of interaction, or for a situational union.

This is a continuation of the course that has been going on for the last 1,5 years. Its meaning is to distance the positions of Belarus and Russia, and on some issues even oppose them

- explained Pushkov.

According to the senator, Washington is playing a serious strategic game to increase its influence on Minsk and, naturally, the Americans see that Lukashenka is ripe for a certain level of cooperation. At the same time, the head of Belarus expects that he will be able to control the processes and they will not interfere with the implementation of his plans.

But the task of the United States is to take advantage of Lukashenko's tilt towards the West and Kiev to prepare for the change of power in Minsk. Now they will behave with him in the same way as they flirted with Viktor Yanukovych in Ukraine. But then they will find it a burden and start supporting the opposition forces.

- the senator is sure.

Pushkov noted that some Russians are mistaken about Lukashenka. They believe that the President of Belarus will stop making unfriendly attacks against Russia immediately after his re-election. Allegedly, he now specially arranged political show for elections.

But I think he is changing the political course of Belarus. Now it is important for him to win and achieve recognition of his victory in the West. Thanks to this, he plans to continue to hold power in his hands, although it is obvious that this will lead to protests.

- summed up Pushkov.

    That's not news. The crafty one was previously engaged in joint development of ATGMs with Bandera, knowing perfectly well against whom Ukraine would use these ammunition. It is necessary to drive him from the Russian Federation in the neck and no longer give the Cunning a penny, let him now be fed in Kiev.

    While all this was being written, Lukashenka called Russia "elder brother".

          It will be appreciated only by descendants ... We are satisfied with the rule of Stalin and De Gaulle ... let's look at the level of intelligence of those who will replace him ... otherwise it will turn out to be like that of their neighbors: whatever the hetman, then the padliuk ...

    ..he just put on a political show on purpose because of the elections.

    - and this show is Russophobic, because the majority of Belarusians are Russophobes.
    I'm tired of proving the obvious!

      Russia made a mistake when it retrained them from Polish to Russian, but allowed MOV. Poland and Lithuania, where they are so eager, will correct this mistake.
  6. Without Russia, Russo-Bellia's prominence will be instantly plundered and die, as it did in the Square. So go ahead Papa Lou! We love and appreciate fools!

    Oh how! Senator Alexey Pushkov has finally "seen the light" ??! smile

    This is a continuation of the course that has been going on for the last 1,5 years. Its meaning is to distance the positions of Belarus and Russia, and on some issues even oppose them

    This Lukashenka's anti-Russian and anti-Russian "course" has been going on for decades, and became especially noticeable OVER 6 YEARS AGO - in March 2014, when the AGL was clearly "scared to death" and fidgeted not like a child, what if its (the same as from Yanukovych with Azarov!) "no alternative course to the West - away from Russia, but due to preferential Russian subsidies" will suddenly open up and a popular referendum similar to the Crimean one will be held in Belarus, then most of the Belarusian population will also vote for reunification with Russia into a single state !
    And the Kremlin blind men ( since 2014, having already the sad example of the pro-American ruling elite of "fraternal Ukraine"), blissfully slept all this time and, so it turns out from the words of Senator Pushkov, only a year and a half ago they began to notice "something amiss" in the behavior of their "most reliable ally" - for five years he had been openly Russophobic (but what is there anti-Russian " flirted "at his meetings with the Bandera Nazis, in words he urged on, financially helping the Kiev w / Bandera people to kill the Russian population in Ukraine) and the anti-Russian mustachioed "Russian with a quality mark"??! Well well!
    And now, even though the Moscow rulers really saw the light, they are going to do at least something when "the train left for Yusu" (with an irrevocable "load" of multibillion-dollar debts to the Russian Federation for loans and "overcredits", with which Russia allegedly lured to itself into dependence ", into the Union State, Lukashenka's" independent and sovereign Belarus "?!) ??! winked

      Deal with your "rulers" before criticizing Moscow. Our herds of baboons in the center of the capital do not jump.

    Listening to others, you have to think with your brains. If a strong state wants to have an ally, do not count a penny. Counting money is a corporate business. And the state should think about the future. We are even loyal to those allies who have American biological laboratories on their territory. Just because they smile at us cute.

    Yeah, that is, he owes everyone a fig, and the prosecutor of Russia.
    Good then.

    And since he doesn't show a fig to everyone instead of Russia, it's bad.

    And as he plays hockey with Putin, or he buys gas in record time (wah, already, oh, it won't fit yet), or if Merkel gives flowers with him, then it will be good again.
