Continuous protests in Minsk make Kremlin think about Lukashenka's resignation


For the fourth month in Belarus, massive protests against the presidency of the country Alexander Lukashenko have lasted. But on November 27, 2020, at a meeting with the staff of the 6th city clinical hospital in Minsk, the head of state assured, however, without specifying that he would soon leave his post, writes World Socialist Web Site.


I do not make any Constitution for myself. In the new Constitution, I will not work with you as president

- said Lukashenko.

After that, the president criticized democracy, which destroyed the USSR and could destroy Belarus.


Lukashenko started talking about his departure after being visited by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. At the meeting, the Russian minister говорил about Moscow's interest in a stable and calm Belarus, which should be facilitated by the constitutional reform initiated by Minsk. He also denied rumors of talks with the Belarusian opposition.

It should be noted that relations between Belarus and Russia were tense even before the start of the protests. For a long time Lukashenka tried to balance between the West and Moscow, which caused frank irritation among both. Minsk supported close economic ties with Kiev, which offended the Russians even more. Therefore, the ongoing street actions in Belarus no doubt make the Kremlin think about Lukashenka's resignation.

Belarus is the last country on the western border of Russia, which is not yet integrated into the structures of the West (EU and NATO) in one way or another. Therefore, the Kremlin has increased its pressure on Lukashenko out of its own geostrategic interests. Moscow is really alarmed by the ongoing instability at its side, as protests from Belarus could spill over to Russia, where there are many oligarchs. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating the economic situation and contributing to the development of a negative scenario, the World Socialist website concluded.

    Protests in Minsk and why should the Kremlin think about resignation? The chairman has nothing to do with Russia, he is not listed as a governor.

    Belarus is the last country on the western border of Russia, which is not yet integrated into the structures of the West (EU and NATO).

    Remind me when Moldova and Ukraine joined NATO and the EU?

    Moscow is really alarmed by the ongoing instability at its side, as protests from Belarus could spill over to Russia, where there are many oligarchs.

    Why not to Brazil where there are many wild monkeys? request In Belarus, it means protests and oligarchs are not observed, but why should protests spill over to Russia? Well, of course, because there are many oligarchs sad
    Don't read the World Socialist Website before lunch. It is difficult to read an article with such logical constructions, eyes bleed.

    similarly, instead of Belarus, insert the Russian Federation, disconnect from SWIFT, and freeze (arrest) all accounts of currency officials in Western banks - it will be even more fun

    And EVERYWHERE previously wrote that the protests fizzled out.
    Never, and now again?

    Anonymous authors imply that Moscow should twirl Belarus and Lukashenko as it wants? Remove and appoint your dictator?
    It will probably only get worse.

    - Personally, I'm just tired of repeating myself:
    - Until Moscow removes (removes) Lo (Lukashenko) from power and introduces its troops to Belarus, the situation there will get worse and worse ...
    - Today the situation has become much more complicated for the implementation of those measures about which Personally I say, I repeat ...
    - Soon, the timid and indecisive policy of Moscow will lead to the fact that ... that ... that Lo can simply go over to the West and ask NATO for help ... - And Lo will easily do it ... when finally -then the new president will enter into legal rights ...
    - What is Moscow waiting for, like an ostrich ... - thrusting its head into the sand ... - I personally absolutely do not understand ... - Already today "time has been lost greatly" and very drastic radical measures are required ...
    - Everything is very, very serious ... - and the indecisive policy of the Kremlin can complicate everything so much that Russia will get a newly-made NATO member by its side ...
    - And for now ... - The Kremlin is dragging out time with its last bit and distracting the Russian public from this impending disaster in Belarus ... - So they switched to Karabakh - a new distraction. (Syria has simply ceased to interest everyone) ...
    - And when a coup d'etat breaks out in Belarus ... - then in the Kremlin they will only throw up their hands ... - Well, who would have thought that Law was capable of such a thing ...

      Any gestures Pu without the permission of Washington and ..... GDP is scary for the accounts and property of oligarch friends. Probably somewhere there and his accounts and palaces. Western partners can also impose sanctions (real estate accounts, visas).

    If Belarus is a Union State, why can't Russia send its troops there? Germany and Poland are never a Union State to the United States, but they quietly brought their troops there, and the local population is only happy. So the Belarusians will be delighted in their mass. So it's time to introduce Russian troops into Belarus, following an example from the most democratic state!

    Because the "great" Putin and the "wise" Laurel have flicked their beaks for the last 20 years and did not bother with the creation of pro-Russian parties, movements, politicians in Belarus.
    The protests arose amid blatant election fraud. without relative to Russia. Putin, with his support for Lu, did everything to ensure that the negative emotions of the population splashed out on Lu were transferred to Russia.
    Currently, pro-Western movements and politicians are trying to ride these protests and direct them not only against Lu but also against Russia. Fortunately, there is no base (Russophobic mentality) in Belarus for the successful implementation of such plans. But this problem is quickly resolved with the help of NGOs and mass media of the appropriate orientation.
    Therefore, the Kremlin must think not only about how much and where to steal and how to launder the loot for the court oligarchs, but also about Russia's geopolitical interests.
    With this leadership of Russia, NATO missiles will soon be stationed on the border of the Smolensk and Bryansk regions.
