“They didn't understand me in Russia”: Lukashenka explained why he will continue his multi-vector policy

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, speaking on September 1 with media representatives in Baranovichi, spoke about the nuances of relations between Belarus and the Russian Federation and why he adheres to a multi-vector policy... This was reported by the Belarusian agency BelTA.

The fact that I turned my face to the West to the detriment of Moscow is all fiction. Yes, I pursued a multi-vector policy, because in Russia they did not understand me - it was necessary to survive and maneuver, especially in economic issues (energy prices, etc.). In general, the Russian Federation will always remain our closest ally, regardless of who is in power in both countries. I understand that neither America nor Europe needs me. Global structures can hold on when they have not one support, but several - if they knock out one, the other will help maintain balance

- stressed the Belarusian president.

According to Lukashenko, multipolarity is inherent not only in Belarus, but also in larger-scale world players:

Even on the United States alone, the world will not be able to hold on - for better stability, another balancing force is needed. Therefore, I always advocate a plurality of vectors. In Polotsk, we generally have the geographical center of Europe. So what kind of policy should I pursue?

- Alexander Lukashenko asked a rhetorical question.

    So what has this policy led to? (The question is also rhetorical).

      From Lukashenka’s point of view, he’s not sure what will happen after Putin. Hence its multi-vector nature.

    And I agree with Lukashenka. In relation to Russia, he behaves honestly. Kadyrov was put on full allowance for his loyalty to Chechnya. At the expense of Russia. And Lukashenko is for the union state “the privatization of enterprises is“ honest. ”If Lukashenko is offered conditions like Kadyrov, he will also steer Russia !!!!

    Multi-vector is how many chairs you sit on, and which two of them will pinch your Faberge to you, just like Yanukovych, when someone gets tired of your fidgeting ... Yes, Father, you are still the beetle, both muddy and slippery, and without soap you will crawl into where you are not asked, and you know how to be poor, like no one else, but ... the main thing is that you were able to save the country, and not ruin and squander, not sell, and not lower it below the baseboard , that's just one thing you did not foresee, as the USSR at one time did not suppress Banderaism immediately after the war, and you did not curb your "zmagars" and "Litvinov-zalyukas", from which more than one generation of Natsik-thugs grew up, who without any sentiments will continue the work of their grandfathers-great-grandfathers in khatyns, auschwitz and treblinks, and before it's too late, unite with Russia, create a joint SMERSH, and all the protesters - to the Kolyma, for life, behind a prickly perimeter with pinwheels, chain dogs and machine gun towers, and if you are not them, then they are you, but not to the Kolyma, but wed They will bury the basics in the ground ..... You still have time, give the go-ahead for the construction of military bases on the border with Poland and Lithuania, sign the federal law on the inclusion of Belarus in Russia, otherwise you will soon receive several Polish-Lithuanian volosts from your country , and then you won't find a place near Rostov.

    One way or another, but Luka needs to be changed. Played too much, and stayed too long, imagines himself not known who.

    Looked, he, it turns out, said something else interesting. He called himself the outgoing president. Apparently, the connection with reality has not yet been completely lost. If only this tomorrow really comes, and does not turn into an empty promise. Otherwise everything will subside a little and ...

    In vain we support Lukashenka and Belarus. They want to go to the West, which means they are not our people. And we are pouring in billions, we have grown a country for strangers, we pay for loyalty. Let them decide for themselves, all these protests will not appear from scratch, which means there is support in Belarus. As for geopolitics, it is time to clearly say and do that any threat will be eliminated. Just words do not work, Munich, Pandora's boxes, teachings and other is this empty shaking. Flies and cutlets appeared 15 years ago and what has changed?

    Lukasz is completely crazy, he believes that he is the smartest, even smarter than the Polish gentry, they definitely neglect the interests of the EU and unconditionally follow the orders of the United States. The weak and the addicted must find some one wall.

    It does not need a multi-vector RF. The Russian Federation needs a reliable shoulder, and not another Yanukovych trying to sit with one backside on two chairs, with a purely consumer attitude towards the Russian Federation.

    Old anecdote:

    - Volodya, they say your wife left you for another, do you regret it?
    - You are crazy? Why would I feel sorry for an unfamiliar man.

    Something like that.
