Regional elections in Russia deprive Lukashenko of one of the trump cards before Putin

The elections of governors and deputies of regional authorities in Russia showed the support of the population of the current policy state. In this regard, Alyaksandr Lukashenka is deprived of the opportunity to solidify with Vladimir Putin in defending himself against “color revolutions” at home - nothing threatens the Russian leader inside the country. The Belarusian opposition political expert Pyotr Kuznetsov wrote about this in his Telegram channel.

Contrary to forecasts and expectations, the past regional elections did not bring any unpleasant surprises to the current government in Russia. That is, Lukashenko's passage about the loosening of the situation in the Russian Federation through Belarus was not justified - the Russians almost unanimously supported Putin and his policy. The solidarity of dictatorships does not work. Thus, the head of the Republic of Belarus is forced to ask for unilateral and gratuitous assistance from his strong eastern neighbor.

- noted Kuznetsov, speaking about the fact that Lukashenka lost his political trump card in the form of a possible community of interests of the heads of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation in confronting dissent.

The events in Minsk show that it is more and more difficult for Alyaksandr Lukashenka to suppress rallies of opposition-minded people in his country.

Lukashenko is becoming a toxic partner for Putin. The Kremlin has a limited set of funds to support the Belarusian leader and has very little motivation for this, given the futility of such a political figure as the current head of Belarus

- the expert emphasized.

    Why is the hopelessness such a political figure as the current (and former! yes ) the head of Belarus ??!
    AHL is a tough nut to crack and has shown that he can take a punch winked (however, as earlier it was well shown that a hypocritical Russophobe, "zmagar" and a Bandera member are in one bottle! request )!
    But it is possible and necessary to "work with him", "affectionately and tenderly" - by no means hurting painful pride and "not breaking over the knee", taking into account the individual originality of the "multipersonality" of the legally elected Belarusian President and his true driving motives! wink
    So, on the part of the "Belarusian oppositionist" Pyotr Kuznetsov, a crude and primitive manipulative attempt to unreasonably wishful thinking! wassat

      And what did Lukashenka show? That the economy is collapsing and there is nothing to repay debts with? So for this Putin is giving him $ 1,5 billion so that he can pay off with us. It seems like they gave a loan, but they immediately took it away, and planted it on interest. we began to act like the IMF. Drive into debt.

        That is, igor.igorev, you say that "we (the Russian authorities ???)", "acting like the IMF", before giving or not giving the country your credit, make it an unswerving condition and categorically demand to raise the housing and communal services tariffs for the population and the prices of the most vital things by several times ??? what

          Neither I nor you have seen the documents according to which the loan is issued and what are the requirements. Or were you present when Putin signed this document? Then tell us more about it.
          Prices for housing and communal services, if you mean Russia, are raised not by the state, but by companies. You will somehow learn to separate flies from cutlets. The state raises various benefits, but where to get money for this? You can, of course, turn on the machine, but then the inflation will be such that mom does not worry. Passed in the 90s, we know and remember. And so companies raise prices by a little, pay more taxes to the treasury, and from these taxes they raise child benefits.

            Igor.igorev, there is no need to go deep into the documents, since the IMF, unlike Russia, when negotiating a loan, immediately puts before the authorities of the borrowing country the main condition and the strict requirement to increase housing and communal services tariffs for the population (for us, for a permanent Ukraine, "begging the IMF", does not know this!) - this is the fundamental difference between IMF loans and RF loans! yes
            You didn't know or just troll

            we (Russia?) began to act like the IMF... Drive into debt.

            ?! wink

    Belarusian opposition political expert Pyotr Kuznetsov.

    - when it is profitable, you can refer to the opposition, and the Maidan people, the Yusovites and terrorists ...
    Which are obvious bullshit.

    it is more and more difficult to suppress rallies of opposition-minded people in their own country

    - and on other patriotic news sites exactly the opposite.

    The elections confirmed Putin's full support - there will be no Union of Dictatorships.
    Is this some kind of special liberal logic?
    Putin was supported in the elections - it means he is a dictator.
    Ale liberals, how is that?

      No matter what happens, good or bad (which is many times worse for oppos), Putin is personally to blame and he must leave. That's the whole logic.

    Strange. They need to skimp, and not reason and make expert conclusions. Such fun that the opposition has arranged, no power forgives. After taking the oath, Luke will sift them with a small sieve. There will be no high-profile cases. And those who are on a criminal basis and for a hooligan will sit down , will rejoice that they are still alive. Most of the fools who did not dump, will simply quietly disappear.

    The so-called leaders of the opposition, such as the Tikhanovskaya kolesnikovs, etc., have become unpromising in Belarus.
