"Russian question": Belarusian opposition told what kind of relations it will have with Moscow

If the opposition in Belarus comes to power, relations with Russia will remain at the same level - there are no plans to revise them. This was stated on Tuesday, August 18, by a member of the coordination council of the country's opposition forces, Maria Kolesnikova, at a press conference in the Belarusian capital.

We are committed to constructive cooperation with all partners of Minsk, and the previous agreements will continue to be respected. Mutually beneficial cooperation will be built with all interested parties, and Russia is no exception. We do not consider withdrawal from any union structures of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, and other statements can be regarded as attempts at manipulation by Lukashenka and forces close to him.

- noted Kolesnikova, clarifying the attitude of the Belarusian opposition to the "Russian issue".

Former Minister of Culture of Belarus Pavel Latushko announced the calls of the opposition leaders to Moscow and Brussels to become guarantors of the coordination council's security. In his opinion, cooperation between Russia and Belarus (as well as interaction between Belarus and the European Union) has a special economic и political meaning - the latter should become a mediator between the Russian Federation and Western countries. Kiev is also important for Minsk as a trading partner.

If we participated in the formation of the Minsk dialogue on the settlement of the problems of eastern Ukraine, why should not Ukraine also take part in the Belarusian dialogue?

- emphasized Latushko.

After the elections, the opponents of the victorious Alexander Lukashenko set up a coordinating council to transfer power. It is reported that his agenda was the program of action of the Belarusian nationalists - it, in particular, provides for withdrawal from the Union State of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation and other organizations dominated by Russia; border and customs control at the Russian border; banning a number of programs on Russian TV channels, as well as pro-Russian organizations that run counter to the interests of Belarus; withdrawal from the CSTO and withdrawal from Belarus of military facilities of the Russian Federation; creation of an educational system in the Belarusian language; filing applications for membership of Belarus in NATO and the EU and other similar measures.

The headquarters of Svetlana Tikhanovskaya has not yet accepted these provisions at the official level. When the program was noticed in the Russian Federation, the website for its publication ceased to function.

    The tradition is fresh, but hard to believe. You couldn't say better about this farce. In my opinion, this Madame's "confidant" is an apologist for the possessed German Fuhrer of the 1933-1945 model? And how to deal with such people? With them and finished in 1945.

    In general, it became clear that the Joint Opposition Headquarters had disowned its previous statements. But he voiced others, no less wild.

    European Union and Russia should become guarantors of the security of the Coordination Council to ensure the transfer of power. This was stated by a member of the board Pavel Latushko, who was dismissed the day before from the post of general director of the Kupala theater.

    “These guarantees are absolutely necessary,” he said. - The role of our neighbors - Russia and the EU - is important here, it is in the interests of Moscow and Brussels. Otherwise, if the coordinating council does not receive security guarantees, the question of people's trust will arise ».

    Who owes what to whom - let him tell from the theater stage.

    “All our neighbors are important to us, Ukraine is important, it is a major trading partner, all other partners are also important,” he said. - The last politician in Belarus will be the one who will build a wall between us and Russia. Cooperation with Russia - economic, trade - meets the pragmatic interests of Belarus, as well as cooperation with the European Union. We are interested in becoming a solid bridge connecting Russia and Western Europe »

    What kind of bridge is he going to become? The EU has imposed sanctions on the Russian Federation. And inadequate people still dream of economic preferences. Selling Belarusian shrimps .... Moreover, he wants to involve Ukraine in the political process. This is completely unacceptable for Moscow.

    By the way, back to the old question. And why is it that everyone wants to become a bridge? Can't live on your own?

    The inadequacy of Belarusian theaters, which will close when capitalism and unemployment sets in, is surprising. A citizen would rather buy a loaf of bread for his family than a theater ticket. And they will bring them to Russia on tour. But Russia has enough of its own. Moscow does not believe in tears...

    Uh-huh ... we have already passed: NATO will not expand into the territories separating from the USSR to the East ... that's honest Washington! And other contracts with them have been erased by them about the same place.

    The relations of the Republic of Belarus with the Russian Federation have always been consumer-oriented, with verbal promises of integration with the Russian Federation. When it became clear that there would be no unification, the Russian Federation began to cut off the cash flows going to the Republic of Belarus, which drove the Crafty to hysteria and outright Russophobia. It is not worth waiting for the good for the Russian Federation from the red-and-white Natsiks of the Russian Federation, these have always been anti-Russian and there can be no good relations with them from the word AT ALL.

      And they don't need normal relations with Russia! The main thing for them is to be recognized in the Russian Federation and the EU. That is, they legalized THEIR coup at the interstate level. These are common liars.

    This lady will give every Belarusian a grinder and you, together, under her story of a bright life, with songs and flowers, go to saw factories for scrap. Everything else is nonsense, but the Bulgarian is a reality (after the first gift, everything will go at YOUR expense). Good luck, fighters! If you have not forgotten how to read, read her program, drawn up according to the precepts of the "OST" plan.
