Lukashenka finally abandoned the multi-vector approach


For a long time, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko tried to adhere to a multi-vector policyflirting with both Russia and Western countries. However, recent events suggest that the leader of Belarus has chosen one area of ​​his activity - an orientation towards the Kremlin. This opinion "Kommersant" said the political observer Sergei Strokan.


A few years ago, the president tried to say goodbye to the image of "the last dictator of Europe." During the reservations with the Kremlin, Lukashenko even received US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Minsk, who promised Belarus full support on its "path to democracy".

However, everything changed in the summer of 2020 after the victory of Alexander Grigorievich in the presidential election. The head of state actually turned a blind eye to the West and initiated tough action against the demonstrators protesting against his re-election to the highest post in Belarus.

The final point in this matter was put by the latest incident with the forced landing of a Ryanair plane and the arrest of opposition blogger Roman Protasevich. Thus, Lukashenka's already not too large political capital was finally lost, and his policy finally became one-vector.

The Belarusian politician who tried to fly on two wings will now learn to fly on one. The west wing fell off, or was simply unscrewed as unnecessary

- stressed Strokan.

Meanwhile, the expert believes that the West may place part of the blame for what happened on Moscow, forcing Russia to pay the Belarusian bills.

    Yeah, yeah .... Just today I met the news: Dad raised the prices for pumping oil from the Russian Federation.
    Multi-vector, single-vector, all bullshit. Capitalism. Whoever gives money to earn, that and the vector.

      Let me know - what did you mean? Lukashenka has already been removed from the label "the last dictator of Europe", and now he has returned it to himself by his own efforts, announcing that he personally gave the order to raise the fighter into the air. Who was he going to destroy - the bomb on board with the passengers ??

        I meant that he will dodge integration to the end, and at every opportunity he will return in his multi-vector nature.
        Who filmed and labeled? Who are these strange people with an intellect affected by megalomania?
        Raised a fighter means a dictator? Are you delusional? belay This is the standard procedure for the threat of a terrorist attack. Fighters flew over the United States back in 2001, would you like to talk about their dictatorship and humanism? winked

          do you want to talk about their dictatorship and humanism?

          The fact of the matter is that I do not wish - "yes, he is a son of a bitch, but he is OUR son of a bitch" - all this has long been known, but has nothing to do with the safety of civil aviation.

              I'm talking about the landing of the plane of Bolivian President Evo Morales at the Vienna airport in search of Edward Snowden. Then no one was particularly indignant at the actions of Austria and the United States and did not impose sanctions against these states - but it should have been introduced, as it is now against Belarus.

                I thought you were worried about the fighter. So besides Morales, the Americans also planted a plane in transit with our senator, the Ukrainians returned the plane, the Turks planted ours, the Iranians (I don’t remember) someone else's (I don’t remember) What so unusual happened that made you so excited? Are yours beaten?
                Indeed, no sanctions were imposed and were silent, who would put him in prison, he is a monument. In general, double standards. Maybe now they will introduce against the United States for old sins, is it too late? What is not? So there is no need to play as an intellectual here. In fact, everything is simple.
                They can do whatever they want, but here Lukashenka dared. It's a shame. This is how all the agents will scatter, the roof does not provide security.

                    Of course they did, of course this is the position and in your opinion it is correct. And all that does not correspond to her chatter and propaganda.
                    Isn't that so? They land planes, well, that's okay, because no one requires sanctions. And then they demanded. Because it was not they who planted, and this is no longer correct. What is allowed to Jupiter ...
                    You are actually advocating for their right to decide who and what can be done.
                    And the rest of the evil one.

          Although Lukashenka is an old despot and dictator, he understands perfectly well that after integration he will lose full power, which is held by all the methods already known to us. An illustrative example of this is the LPR / DPR. Why have they not united for so many years to jointly fight the hated Ukraine? Like this.

    It is easy to make statements of this kind if the deal has failed, like you didn't really want to. fellow
    Today I heard on the radio that Europe is freezing investments worth about 3 billion euros. I wonder if this is a lot or so-so for the country's economy.
    How will they compensate?

    If you read the comments to the scam from Valery Tsepkalo, it is striking how the people hate Lukashenka, although of course on the YouTube channel they commented, perhaps, mainly from Ukraine and possibly trolls ... but obviously there are also quite a few real Belarusians. And then the question arises, if the people were tired of him and this was evident from the protests, then it would hardly be possible to continue driving in the same spirit for a long time. It looks like the BR will either merge with the Russian Federation, or they will have to come up with another scenario. But the fact that Lukashenka will not be able to change nothing for a long time seems to be becoming a fact.
