"The situation has changed": Lavrov spoke about the future of the Union State

Russia and Belarus are currently analyzing and assessing the relevance of the articles of the Union Treaty, concluded more than two decades ago. This was stated by the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov when answering the question about the possible transformation of this structure.

According to the Russian minister, the process will proceed by agreement of both sides. This work is under way, and it is based on the agreement concluded in 1999. Quite a long time has passed since then, so the governments of Russia and Belarus are defining steps to promote the integration of the two states into modern history.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that the situation has changed, and it is necessary to conduct discussions about integration processes from a modern perspective. The situation in the Republic of Belarus will soon return to normal, and our joint work will continue

- stressed the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Sergei Lavrov also noted that the articles of the Union Treaty are now being carefully analyzed, and the authorities of Russia and Belarus come to a mutual position on the relevance of certain provisions of the agreement or on making the necessary adjustments. The disposition to continue the reform of the union structure is confirmed by the recent telephone conversation between Putin and Lukashenko, as well as by the meeting of the leaders of states in Sochi.

    It seems that the cohabitation of Belarus with Russia will be on the German principle. It is like a separate land, for example. Bavaria is part of the FRG, and Belarus will become part of Russia. And then other republics will follow in a similar way.

    I don't want Belarus to become part of Russia. This old ideology of "brothers" does not cause anything but gagging. Let it be better to live on their own, there is enough customs union, but it should not be equivalent for both parties. Russia should have more benefits from such an agreement, because the times "in an amicable way" have long passed along with the previous generation. Now let them unfasten so as not to turn into a second wretched Ukraine with bandits, racketeering, explosions, fires and hunger.

    We cannot remake Western Belarusians in our own image and likeness, they, like the Ukrainian Galicians, have Polish-Lithuanian blood flowing with five hundred years of hatred for the Russian Empire, the USSR and the Russian Federation, so we shouldn't even try to pull their sack on ourselves , but the rest of the territories will not make claims to unification into a single state, they perfectly remember this Europe since the Second World War .....

And if the United States does not like the winner in the elections, HIS WILL NOT BE ACCESSED TO THE POWER). Most of those who "protest" have either a "Pole's card", or a "green card", or passports of the neighboring countries of the West. They are ALREADY not Belarusians in the world view! They have already SOLD their homeland! I understand that they want a better life, but let them leave where they were given a new passport - NOBODY forbids, but to do what at all times was equated with a STATE CRIME (and actions aimed at overthrowing the government or overthrowing the existing system - there is a CRIME).

For me - a free person in my country, it is enough that I know - WITHOUT RUSSIA YOU WOULD BE SLAVES OF THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE FOR THIS TIME. And the fact that you remember your relatives is fine. We also remember. Even before the time of Peter I, my ancestors first moved near Kursk (at the end of the 9th - beginning of the XNUMXth centuries), and only then (under Tsarina Catherine the Great) - to the South Urals, and other relatives even further went to develop Siberia and the Far East. Our migration of peoples was in such an extent that a lot of people do not always remember the real origins of their origin. I was lucky, family traditions have survived. But not everyone was given this - the territories are huge, the mixture of peoples is colossal, the peoples are free (where they wanted, they settled there). You, as the slaves of the Ottoman Port, were kept in a limited area, therefore it is not surprising that you all got married there and remember your ancestry up to the XNUMXth generation ... It's different for us - we, COSSACKS, are free people, wherever we want - there we go! Even the tsars and emperors of Russia SIGNED A SEPARATE AGREEMENT WITH THE COSSACKS on the protection of the borders (first the Kingdom, and then the Empire).
                      And therefore, it is not for the descendant of the slaves of the Ottoman Empire to tell the hereditary Cossack what he has and how. Say thanks to the Russian Empire. that she freed you, otherwise they would have been slaves of the Ottomans ...

Good ... Obviously, there are people in Belarus who want to live in a democratic and free country, where the elections will be fair and transparent. This, of course, is nonsense for the Russian world, where manipulation of elections and falsifications are normal.
                        In this context, the elections of Bulgaria to the PSV and ESP. We were in a coalition that sided with us in an attempt to resolve the national question - the unification of territories with the Bulgarian population, annexed by Greece, Serbia and Romania after the Balkan wars. We fought on the territory of Bulgaria and defeated the Anglo-French-Russian-Serbian-Romanian-Greek troops on both fronts. The defeat of the Russian troops in Dobrudja led to the withdrawal of Russia from the PSV and the signing of the Brest-Litovsk peace treaty.
                        A similar situation was in the Second World War. Until September 5, Bulgaria did not declare war on the USSR, and although Bulgaria had already declared war on Germany at 5 o'clock, on that day the USSR unilaterally declared war on Bulgaria and on September 8 without a single shot from our side (because we were already allies against Germany) the USSR occupied Bulgaria. As a result, the Russian troops brought their communist lackeys to power and the most misanthropic period in the history of Bulgaria begins.
                        Bulgaria withdrew from the Ottoman Empire as a result of the next Russian-Turkish war of 1876-77, but remained politically dependent on the Ottoman Empire until 1908, when it declared independence against the will of Russia. Why Russia did not liberate Bulgaria in 1829, when the troops of General Diebitsch reached Edirne and signed the Edirne Peace Treaty, you can explain to me.

    According to S. Lavrov's stated logic on promoting integration within the framework of the Belarus-Russia Union, the next step should be a joint Statement on the establishment of a Constitutional Assembly from public organizations, state (legal) structures, scientists, cultural figures and other both countries to develop the Basic Provisions for the creation of the Union with detailing financial, economic and political structures, general management bodies and the powers delegated to them, and much more. I think the people who are now taking to the streets against A. Lukashenko will join this process, and as for the pro-Western "opposition", "they were not here!" Let them stay in Poland and the Baltic states.
