Tagesspiegel: Lukashenka may not return from Moscow as Putin will "fire" him

The future of President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko is in the hands of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, German journalist Frank Herold said in his columnist for the Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel.

Gerold noted that the Belarusian leader "uses a terrible arsenal" of his security apparatus, trying to suppress resistance to his rule. According to a German publicist, Lukashenko has moved from threats and intimidation to outright violence and repression, since he cannot take control of the protest movement.

Tens of thousands of people bravely marched through the streets of Minsk on Sunday. Dictator Lukashenko clearly feels that the official security structures are not enough to save his power. Therefore, it is not surprising that one of the opposition leaders, Maria Kolesnikova, was kidnapped by unknown persons

- the journalist describes his impressions after recent action opposition in Minsk.

Gerold believes that reports about Lukashenka's desire to go to Moscow testify to the fears of the Belarusian president about the prospects of retaining power in his hands.

He certainly won't have tea with Putin in the Kremlin. Lukashenka's neighbor is causing inconvenience to the Russian president - and not only lately. The outcome of the upcoming meeting lies on the surface. Perhaps Lukashenko will not return from Moscow, because Putin will “fire” him by sending him out. This decision is likely to be made by the Russian president very soon. Or Lukashenka will return to Belarus with the notorious Putin police detachment of OMON

- the columnist summed up unconvincingly.

Note that on September 8, 2020 Belarus remained without opposition leaders.

    If only Putin didn't get angry and Merkel didn't fire ... That's what the Germans need to worry about. But she still didn’t give the darkest one to the darkest one about the Polish-German agents Nick & Mike who poisoned Lesha ... And even three days have passed since Kay GB posted the entry to the network. Time is ticking ... The clock is ticking ...

    It may not return, at the discretion of Putin, and Belarusian Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin may become the acting president of Belarus, if an emergency plan is announced in the country, or martial law in connection with the provocations of NATO countries near the borders of the republic. Khrenin is Russian, graduated from Soviet military institutions, we are respected by the people, so there is someone to put instead of Father.

    Putin can only rule by lawlessness. But Lukashenka is not Furgal, the navel will be untied. Lukashenko is more likely to drive Putin away than Putin Lukashenko. Are we going to make bets? I agree to the Kazakh one.

    Lukashenka may not return from Moscow as Putin will "fire" him

    - But what does Putin have to do with it ??? - Personally, I am far from delighted with the actions of our guarantor; but it is precisely here that the whole point is in Lo (Lukashenko) himself ...
    After all, Lo is long overdue to "drain into the sediment" ... and not because Lo is so bad or good; but because under Law, the entry of Belarus into Russia cannot occur ...
    Yes ... - namely, the entry of Belarus into Russia ... - This problem has become very urgent today and cannot be delayed ... - And not about some kind of "unification of two fraternal states on some sovereign basis" , supposedly everything will take place on a confederal basis ... and Belarus will remain with its army, court, jurisprudence, its constitution, its legislation, its right to choose and "the right of the decisive vote" in the UN, etc. etc. ... - no not like this; but only as a subject of the Russian Federation ... - Yes, only this way ...
    - And if this does not happen, then Belarus; or rather, its separate territorial parts will become part of ... - some of Poland; some to Lithuania, some to Ukraine; well, some to Russia ... - Like this ...
    - And after that Russia will get such problems that ... what ... what is better not to talk about them ...
    - Here is such a "choice" ... - or Belarus is entirely part of Russia ... as a subject of the Russian Federation ...; or Belarus loses its territorial integrity and is part of several states ... - And it ceases to exist as a single territorial Belarusian republic ... - That's it ... - There are simply no other options ...
    - And under Law, the entry into Russia will not happen ... - This Law will push back to the last, until entire Belarusian regions begin to "leave" Belarus by themselves ... - then it will be too late to "do something" ...
    Personally, I have already written in several of my comments (in various topics) that Lo ... is waste material ... and it's time to clean it up ...
    - And today this problem has become very urgent ...

    One thing Fritz ... Frank is right

    The future of the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko is in the hands of Russian leader Vladimir Putin

    yes Everything else is stupid Hans' nonsense! wassat
    Apparently, Herold did not limit himself to one "klapstos" schnapps, but drank avidly straight from the bottle ?! smile
    I've seen "numb" (especially, "at the expense of the host"! yes ) Germans and Austrians from "intellectuals" - "under a green fly" they do not understand anything at all, they become funny, they "confidently" squirrel under their breath, they drive their hands, threaten with their fingers and loudly "authoritatively" scream, drool and muddy Burkals are bulging, then "they don't remember anything" and apologize "for their yesterday's behavior" ... this "publicist", probably, is one of those "who don't understand anything" ?! winked
    After all, how is it necessary to "fill the eyes" in order to invent about Belarus, but not see how mega-violent, cruel and frightening Bundescanzlerin Merkel used her "terrible arsenal of force" of German policemen and police special forces at the recent opposition rally IN BERLIN ?!
    Indeed, against tens of thousands of German-Austrian protesters who "boldly marched" through the streets of Berlin to the Reichstag and tried to climb the steps of its ladder, the "democratic" German police used the most cruel methods of intimidation and physical violence, and stray Austrian journalists were simply beaten with police truncheons and thrown down from the Reichstag stairs!
    But not a single "unwilling" Fritz journalist uttered a peep or condemned the Berlin mega-violence against peaceful protesters and their "writing" colleagues, but all of them "angrily condemn" the much more sparing police methods of suppressing aggressive Maidan extremism and terror when trying to "color "coup d'etat in Belarus, inspired by the vassals of the United States-Germany, Poland and Lithuania ?!
    About the kind of "leader of the opposition" - Bundes citizen Mashka Kolesnikov, who extremist on the Minsk "Maidan", there has already been a refutation that no one of her (or his???) did not "kidnap", but this misdirected foreigner with accomplices imitated her alleged "abduction" herself and in front of the pig's squeal she quickly scrambled over the cordon when "it smelled of fried", isn't it ??! what
    And the rest of the quasi "opposition leaders" fled from Belarus even earlier and yapped from abroad and called for a coup in Belarus and the overthrow of the legally elected president!

      hi "KlApstosh" is a kick in the center of the cue ball, and "Klopstoss" is for the Germans such a small glass, the size of "a bug (hence the name of this miniature" vessel of fairy gnomes ")" for alcoholic drinks, so "a little bit", "culturally in German", "for maintaining a warm conversation of close friends or a light flair of a lonely mood "!
      It seems what I wrote yesterday "KlOpstoss" of schnapps (for a strong antithesis with drunken sipping of schnapps "from the throat of a" bottle), and today I was surprised to find "KlApstoss (hitting the center)" of schnapps - complete nonsense turned out, probably this is my "artificially intellectual "I edited the Chinese smartphone like that, but I didn't notice ?! winked
      I ask dear Readers to understand and forgive for such a ridiculous mistake with the "wrong letter" and the inadvertent "literal" stupidity of my "satire" about the over-drunk "publicist" schnapps! yes
      So, even one small letter matters if it is put with meaning! wink
