Union with Russia may be spelled out in new Belarusian Constitution

In light of the large political events currently taking place in Belarus, Russia is interested in obtaining guarantees of further close ties between Moscow and Minsk. The new Constitution of the Republic of Belarus should spell out the country's Eurasian integration, as well as “the centuries-old history of the development of Russian and Belarusian statehood”. This is the opinion of Aleksey Dzermant, a political scientist from Belarus who is close to the ruling circles.

Through the mention of Eurasianism, we formulate our geopolitical priorities, and speaking of Russian statehood, we emphasize the historical tradition and the diversity of its types and forms from Kievan Rus to the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union

- the political scientist emphasized in his blog.

Dzermant also explained the need to include an alliance with the Russian Federation in the text of the Basic Law of the state:

There is a proposal to change the constitutional wording on the nuclear-free and non-aligned status of Belarus and to register a military-political alliance with Russia. This point may be important due to the possible deployment of nuclear weapons by the Americans on Polish territory and the hybrid aggression from Western countries. We see the support of the Kremlin in difficult times and understand Moscow's desire to have firm guarantees that Minsk, whatever the course of events, will remain in allied relations with Russia.

- said Alexey Dzermant.

At the same time, the expert emphasized that this does not mean renouncing the sovereignty of Belarus - in the context of the political crisis, Belarus faces a choice, and the country in alliance with Russia must maintain common sovereignty, not allowing the West to finally take it away under the pretext of protecting it from the Russian Federation. According to Dzermant, for Russians, Belarusians are a fraternal people, while for the West they are slaves and an object of reformatting the national consciousness.

    Likewise, the Constitution is not a sacred cow, any general secretary-president-padishah can reshape it in his own way, and for his own pleasure, and the people will be thrown a bone in it about a one-time indexation of pensions, and it will stall. But here one significant point is visible - the Belarusians live much better than us, the Russians, and the socialist system is almost preserved there, and we, whose land and natural resources are simply immeasurable, and which are at the mercy of our oligarchs - billionaires, our common people vegetate in poverty , and the question is, what kind of devil do they still lack something, because of what they rebel there, because they do not look for good from good, and whoever you ask, who have visited Belarus, all unanimously declare that Father is already there built communism, in a single country, and it does not matter whose subsidies it is done, and if it is done, then it must be done, and it cannot be otherwise, as long as Belarus is friendly to us ... Are all these upheavals and political cataclysms not will inspire our "Guarantor" that it is impossible to live like this, when the incomes of several percent of our "inhabitants of heaven" are hundreds and more times higher than those of ordinary people .... - we do not store, but having lost, cry m.

      Indeed, the constitution is not a law based on exact physical principles, which are very difficult to overcome, sometimes impossible. Any law must rely on one system or another for its own maintenance. Reliance on political, party ideology has practically outlived its usefulness. Since any party mimics the surrounding political space, thereby losing its original direction. In the end, everything falls apart. Therefore, you need to rely and rely not on the constitution, but on other, non-transferable values.

    That's when it will be registered. Then we'll talk. And at the same time Crimea recognizes South Ossetia and Abkhazia. And with Donbass, the Polesie Guy Julius Caesar will stop twisting the feints and send a hundred tummies there. convoys.

    It sounds strange, almost like in Ukraine about the EU and NATO. You can write down anything, it would be good.
