Russian political scientist: Lukashenko drags Putin to the bottom of him

Almost all the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of the European Union countries have declared their disagreement with the results of the presidential elections in Belarus, considering Alexander Lukashenko an illegitimate president. Now he has nowhere to go except to bow to Putin at the cost of closer integration of Belarus into the Union State with the Russian Federation. Russian blogger and political scientist Anatoly Nesmiyan, known under the pseudonym El Murid, argues about this.

From the point of view of the EU, the Union State of Belarus and Russia will be as illegitimate as the DPR and LPR - after all, the Europeans consider Lukashenko a “fake” head of state. For Vladimir Putin, the united power of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation may mean an extension of their stay in power, but there are some pitfalls here.

If the Union State is not recognized as a legitimate entity, then the meaning of the whole structure is lost. Putin will become some kind of Pushilin - or what is the name of the president of some Abkhazia?

- the Russian political scientist believes, saying that the union with Lukashenko practically drags Putin to the bottom of the world policy and history.

Thus, the current head of Belarus is becoming a toxic figure for Moscow - the Kremlin may think about replacing him with someone else and with the new president, because it makes sense to sign an agreement on the real creation of the Union State with a leader who not only enjoys the support of the population , but also does not raise questions about legitimacy in the West.

    If the Russian leadership chooses the option of replacing Lukashenko with a less "toxic" president, this will mean direct interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state. I wonder what the local jingoistic patriots, who reproach the West for the same thing, will answer to this?

    Of course, the political scientist is right, the forced "salvation" of G. Lukashenka works in the long term to alienate Belarusians from Russia, as an ally of an outcast dictator ... or retire, whatever happens ...

      The attitude towards us depends only on our policy towards ourselves. To that indistinctness with which we are building (it is not clear what), we are moving (it is not clear where), squandering resources, people's trust, developments in science, education, medicine, production, hardly anyone will reach. We're unattractive as it is without Luke.

    The West never recognized the Tribaltic extinctions as part of the USSR, did it mean anything to anyone? This "political scientist" is carrying a blizzard!

    Russia should not give a damn about the opinion of the hostile West.
    Non-intervention in a Western-sponsored coup in Ukraine did not free Russia from sanctions and other attacks. Rather nalborot.
    To repeat this, on the issue with Belarus, is absolutely senseless and counterproductive.
    Russia must and will be guided exclusively by its own geopolitical interests.

    Russian political scientist: Lukashenko drags Putin to the bottom of him

    - Yes, even without this political scientist, it is clear that Russia (our guarantor) is very strongly substituted., Communicating with Law ... - What kind of communication can there be with Law, a ruler who could not resist and could not ensure normal elections ... - Why did our guarantor even accept Law at the official level ???
    - He should have been given a place of residence ... only "as Yanukovych" ... -that's all ...
    -And now there are so many problems because of this Lo ... - and look, that will defect to the West ... - For this, on his orders, an armed conflict with the victims will be provoked ... -and then Lo will urgently turn to the West for help and will ask to send troops to "stabilize the situation" ... - And at the same time he will accuse Moscow of refusing to help Belarus ...
    -Lo urgently needs to be eliminated; remove the president from office; arrest; to put under house arrest; export to Moscow or wherever else ...
    -At the moment Law is so dangerous that he will be satisfied with absolutely everything ... just to stay on his throne ...

      They stood up for Luka so as not to surrender Belarus to the West. There was no other option. After stabilization, there will be progress without surrendering positions to the West and not in an atmosphere of hot Maidan.

    If someone does something contrary to the wishes of the "collective" West and the USA, then this comrade is on the right path, and no matter how these gentlemen hysterical about his non-recognition, Lukashenko is the President of the Republic of Belarus. And the USA recognized the USSR only in 1933, and nothing, we survived it.

    And since when does a sovereign state or a union of sovereign states need external approval of their actions?
    Gentlemen - we are not slaves! We do not have a Master (everyone who wanted to be our Master - we killed everyone) who decides what we can and cannot. Wake up !!!

    As I understood the main idea from the article, do we, the “sixes”, have to approve (endorse) the will of the people in the elections for entry into force with the approval of Western leaders? I don’t care about their opinion. We have our own interests and we must not abandon ours. A friend should be, regardless of the circumstances and difficulties should be endured together, without betrayal.

    And this is correct because it is true. The USSR collapsed already in 1990.

    Nobody pulls anyone to the bottom! Lukashenko is elected by the people! On the other hand, when the West took an objective position: one lie and a lie. Good and true are on the side of Russia and Belarus! Therefore - full speed ahead! As for the protests, this will happen in 2024, since, in my opinion, our leadership does not draw conclusions from the events in Belarus. And, first of all, it is necessary to work with young people (volunteering does not count), it is necessary to block enemy information resources, it is necessary to decide with the political elite, which has real estate and accounts in the enemy camp, and is ready to merge Russia at any time !!!
