Lukashenko sent a signal with a gun not only to the West, but also to Russia


A helicopter landed on the territory of the residence of the Belarusian president in Minsk on August 23, from which the newly elected President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, emerged. What signal does the leader of Belarus send to the West and Russia in this way? Political scientist Evgeny Minchenko talks about this in an interview with a Russian newspaper "Sight".


Lukashenka's decision to pick up a machine gun symbolizes determination and readiness to take any, even extreme measures in order to stay in power

- the expert considers.

This is a signal to the West - the "Ukrainian scenario" will not work in Belarus, Lukashenko is not Yanukovych, but all the power structures of the country continue to obey the head of state.

Earlier, the Belarusian president spoke at a pro-government rally in Grodno. In an interview with RT journalists, Lukashenko noted that he knew about the upcoming demonstrations in his support - he did not want only open clashes with the opposition.

They were preparing for this - if my supporters appear, a conflict could begin. I was afraid for these people

- Lukashenka said.

However, his withdrawal from AK demonstrates to the whole world that despite fears, he is ready to defend himself and his power with arms in hand.

The head of Belarus also thanked Vladimir Putin for persuading him not to be silent and go out to the people:

I answered him - they say, you will soon hear. Well, we heard

- said the President of the Republic of Belarus.

Thus, Lukashenko sent a signal to Russia that Minsk has no plans to break fraternal relations with Moscow and is grateful for the help that the Kremlin is providing him personally.

    Before picking up a Kalashnikov assault rifle in public, you should, at least, be able to disassemble and assemble it with your eyes closed at "5" in time - like, like even me, a schoolboy, at the age of 14 was able to fulfill this standard during the Soviet era ... laughing tongue

    And so - some "show-off" ... well, who is soooo with a weapon ?! am

      The person and his horizons of understanding the problem are immediately visible. It would be better to be silent.
      The machine gun in the hands of the President is a symbol of resistance. I think Lukas remembered Allende and his attempt to defend his regime. Of course, not a fart, which he did not know how to manage, but a species that mobilizes its supporters. Played ..., finally realizing where the "tricks" and the stupid idea of ​​milking two queens at the same time took him. Kalashnikov in his hands is an oath of allegiance to Russia. This is how I view his movements.

      Well, yes, before the birds flew higher and the trees were thicker. laughing

      .. well, who is soooo with a weapon ?!

      You need to see everything a little easier, take three steps back or to the side. Do you really think that the supreme mullah, who went to the prayer service in Agia Sophia with a sword, knows how to use it with a "5"? I think it is possible, but unlikely, it was a sign to other "sword-bearers" who were there or watched this action on TV or YouTube.
      - some "show-off"?

    I say again that this is a very controversial act. Firstly, in my opinion, he shows that he will not abandon the security forces and it may seem (there is also such an option) that Lukashenka has relied on the power bloc (on bayonets). And secondly, how will Lukashenka's opponents perceive this, as a signal to take up arms too, and this can also radicalize the protests!
    In my personal opinion, here it was necessary to find such moves so as not to heat up the situation even more, but on the contrary to reduce the tension!
    But no, you need to take a machine gun to make everything even more heated!

      Do not make me laugh! Those who are ready to take up arms in Belarus are no more than a couple of hundred, and even so God did not give horns. Where will they get weapons? Belarus is not a Ruin, Father has discipline and order in the troops. Two dozen shotguns, maybe a couple of dozen PPShs with MR 38/40 from the Second World War.

    to stay in power

    And what, besides Lukashenko, someone else from the opposition is in favor of preserving the state of Belarus? Or does someone think that the fate of Ukraine is not prepared for Belarus with these protests? Ponty is when Putin has been collecting complaints from all over the country 20-2 million for 4 years and that's it. And Lukashenka over the past 20 years, no one has complained about the poverty of the people and the lawlessness of the authorities. And Putin was afraid to come to Khabarovsk !!!!

    So "signals" are NOT "given" - this is not the case, for the president of the country to walk down the street with a weapon in his hands, especially with a combat one (and, indeed, there was no civilian invisible body armor for VIPs or operatives for him in presidential wardrobe ?! winked )
    AHL is the legally elected president of ALL Belarus, for some reason stupidly played along with his opponents ?! These anti-national and anti-state Washington puppets, who, according to the successfully tested "Maidan technologies", are doing everything possible to split the country and oppose one part of its population to another part, to unleash a civil conflict!

    Demonstratively picking up military weapons and putting on police "equipment" in a fairly peaceful environment, in the absence of any shelling, he behaved like a shtetl politician - a cheap populist, and not like a top statesman who not only in words, but also in fact, he is obliged to take care of justice and equal well-being of ALL his fellow citizens - otherwise what kind of "father" he is, how does he differ from the "opposition" local margins, a priori dividing their fellow citizens into "right (svyadom)" and "wrong" and "leaving" on this ??!

    After all, this is not the president, but the prerogative of the investigators and the court, to reveal crimes, to collect evidence for the court and to pass court decisions on the measure of guilt and innocence of individual or groups of citizens! And then, even convicts, serving their well-deserved punishment, stumbled citizens should not feel rejected and humiliated, the state and authorities have no right to turn away from them!
    So the president of the country (in fact - "her king and God" has been for many, many years!) Has no right (by rank and justice!) To turn away from those who have gone astray and persist in their delusion, mischievously knocked off their pantalyk, their fellow citizens, the world of woeful Maydauns and other wretched infantiles, by the simplicity of their soul or by a little bit, who labor in the crowd among the overseas-committed "Maidan" parasites and, to the delight of vile enemies, destroying their own Fatherland, depriving the Future of themselves and their fellow citizens!

    A real statesman, the president, is responsible for EVERYONE and for EVERYTHING in his Fatherland, is obliged in his post to pursue such a policy in every possible way to promote peace and order in the country, the prosperity of Belarus and the Belarusian population who trusted him!
    In this "white-Maidan" case, the anti-national "agents of influence" of the West, taking advantage of the past presidential elections, with the help of local and foreign extremists and Western special services, incite and bribe part of the Belarusian population into buzu and sabotage, to destabilize and destroy their own country and, therefore or for other reasons, a part of (obviously not too intelligent) people decided to "march against the authorities" together with engaged "regular" businessmen.
    And when all bad things happen (if the authorities fail to prevent the bad things, prevent the crowd manipulated by the prodigals from destabilizing the situation in the country), these "Maidan companions", like our Ukrainian "Maydauns", will personally experience the consequences of their own "Maidan races" and they will bite their elbows, they say, "we did not jump on the Maidan for this, we were deceived!", it will be too late!

    But before it’s too late, and there’s no seams, the President of the Republic of Belarus would not dress up in a militia bulletproof vest with a machine gun, but in an ordinary citizen, with a tie and emphatically unarmed (after all, his machine gun did not help Colonel Gaddafi; aiming at them is an instant "political death", who shot at the shooting range of Porechenkov, as all the "general democratic media" are still sneezing, so it is just a stupid actor, not a high-ranking politician! bodyguards are always nearby, if you really want to AHLu, let them unnoticeably carry his favorite toy - "ksyukha" this and heavy bulletproof vest in the car, when people and the press do not see, outside of working hours, play enough for themselves and arrange where a thread of shots!), Also publicly "on cameras", walk along the line of law enforcement officers, say something smart, encouraging and inspiring, cheer up the soldiers, instill faith in their just cause, say simply and directly that in no case will he betray them, as he betrayed our Ukrainian their law enforcers, the cowardly Jewish Mazepa Yanukovych (who, by the way, they do it on the Web, does not prosper in Rostov at all, but in a dacha near Moscow, right ?!)! I would tell them a funny anecdote about myself, "on the topic", so that laughter rolled in line, would laugh with them, would show that self-irony and humor are not alien to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, that he is with the people and himself from the people!
    And the soldiers in such an alarming situation, "on a tremor", are themselves glad that, even for a moment, their hearts unclenched!

      Then I would slowly, without straining, not alone with the security guards, but accompanied by accredited representatives of local and foreign media, also all under television cameras and video documentaries, I would have walked to the "protesters" who shouted "go away", and looking into their eyes, it's better - into the eyes of their leaders, I would say that they are the same citizens as the rest, that they have the same rights and freedoms as everyone else, no less, but no more - everyone is equal and if someone is more free or insists in his rights to the detriment of others, then this is wrong, this should not be - after all, AHL is the legal Guarantor of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus!
      And they had to directly and clearly, publicly, so that everyone could hear and see, declare that if the minority (and the hyper-fraudulent "opposition" is objectively in the minority - according to the uncontested vote count!) Tries to dictate their wishes to the majority, then this is unfair and nothing good this will not work, and therefore he will not allow this with all the power of the State, Law and Order entrusted to him, so he asks all those gathered to go home in a peaceful and kind manner and not play into the hands of the enemies of Belarus and its multinational labor population, not ruin the future of children and protect the quiet life of your own, your relatives and all your fellow citizens!

      And even if I found at this moment "peaceful" (without any horror stories and a machine gun in my hands !!! it would be "interesting" to look at a completely stupid situation, brought to the point of absurdity, if there was a very small distance between the "demonstrators" and riot police if the AHL would have climbed there in a bulletproof vest with a machine gun, surrounded by armed guards, shouting to the policemen "You are handsome!" - this would be a real "sur", instant "political death" would come, and not "sending signals" - who advised him so blatantly tactless and completely politically illiterate, to the detriment of himself, act, if he himself does not understand that ???!) communication with the people "some inveterate foe, desperate extremist-murderer, and bodyguards would not be able to protect life his "patron" from the treacherous attempt ?!

      Then in the Memory of the People, in our gentle folk epic, after the passage of time, about the meanly murdered AHL by the Maydauns and his extravagant deeds and for the glory of the Motherland (and Lukashenka undoubtedly has them and he did a lot of good over the years, what would be there for him " Oppa "did not say slander and no matter how Probander's way he got sick now! I am for them, for the Good done for my native Belarusians, AHL is grateful and I remember no matter what!) would add a folk tale, with an indispensable lesson for good fellows," which would remember the kind, and funny, and sad about this "chudarnatskiy" mustachioed uncle and the folk path to his grave on the Hill of Glory would not overgrow and fresh flowers would not dry up on it ... in any nation they love and honor martyrs for the people , for the Fatherland, time and opportunistic "heroizations (as well as" revelations "!)" do not have power over them!

      And Russian President Vladimir Putin would take revenge (even if Alexander Grigorievich does not even doubt!) All enemies of the Union State for his dear Belarusian brother (although he has recently "sovereignly" talked more about "partnership" ?!) and the untimely deceased colleague - "the most reliable ally" and "Russian with a quality mark", then it would be clear and understandable to everyone, "who is hu" and that Russia and Belarus are unjustly divided parts of one whole Russian State!
      So, while alive and well, in sober memory, the Belarusian "father" has something to seriously think about and draw the right conclusionsit's never too late to learn! hi
      IMHO

    In gives.

    Lukashenko noted that he knew about the upcoming demonstrations in his support

    - like, it all happened by accident, but I found out purely by chance.

    They were preparing for this - if my supporters appear, a conflict could begin. I was afraid for these people

    That is, the dissatisfied will again be wetted with boots and dragged to prison, against the wishes of the father.

    to defend yourself and your power with arms in hand.

    While the security forces are dissatisfied with their muzzle on the floor, and ankle boots on the ribs.

    I answered him - they say, you will soon hear. Well, we heard

    - what did you ask? According to the text - he persuaded, and persuaded. Far from unarmed people with a gun to show off.

    Lukashenko sent a signal to Russia that Minsk has no plans to sever brotherly relations with Moscow and is grateful for the help that the Kremlin is providing him personally.

    The plans go to Minsk, and the help goes to Lukashenka personally.

    Well done. Feel free to continue to sign zeros.

    I don't know what kind of signal he sent there. But the fact that he clearly has psychological problems. He also dressed up the kid. Moreover, a minor "Rambo" with a gun is probably cool. Why, let him fly to the Mi-24 with his sons to clean up Minsk. Walk like that.

    You know ... I'll answer you soooo, the first rule of gun ownership. smile

    I took out my weapon - shoot ... soldier It's about the "symbol". am Weapons are not toys for children ... like a sword - like a Kalash ... if you don't know how to use it - don't take it - and don't disgrace yourself, and don't disgrace others !!!

    And if you shoot, be ready to receive a response ... In vain is he with a Kalash ... I'm talking about Lukashenko ...

    And about pontovat ... I would have 5 minutes - to train a couple of times - and now, in my 51 years, I will fulfill the standard for disassembling and assembling Kalash even with my eyes closed by 5. soldier
