How the delay in the process of integration with Russia turned out for Belarus


Moscow and Minsk have been discussing roadmaps for integration or union programs for three years already. To this day, no progress has been made in this area, however, in November this year, the countries plan to sign the final program.


It is worth noting that the Kremlin proposed Minsk to build the Union State in the manner prescribed by the relevant agreement of December 1999 back in 2018. Naturally, this would give Belarus many advantages, including low gas prices and tax maneuver. However, Alexander Lukashenko then categorically rejected this proposal.

The countries returned to the discussion of the integration issue in 2019. Then the first roadmaps were created. The future union did not imply any annexation, but provided for a common market.

However, the Republic of Belarus was in no hurry to sign the agreement on such conditions. At the same time, Alexander Lukashenko continued to try to implement his "multi-vector" policies, now and then "flirting" with the West. How it all ended is already known.

Whether the union programs will be signed this time is difficult to say unequivocally. However, it is already obvious that by dragging out the process of creating the Union State, Belarus only lost, moreover, both time and money.

    There is an old folk saying:

    Panas are fighting, and at lackeys forelocks are cracking!

    With the coming of the young capable Vladimir Putin to the presidency of the Russian Federation, immediately, literally in front of our eyes, the "union-integrator" ardor of the Belarusian Father was diminished!
    Before that, with the weak and incapacitated (almost all the time "on vacation working with documents") EBN, who had already traveled to Russian cities and villages, as in his "household" ... winked

    I live in Russia and I don’t want Belarus to be annexed to Russia, not because it is bad, no, it’s a very cool country, and every time I come there I admire the people and the country as everything is human and kind. Let them stay on their own, they are honest and decent Belarusians! We study and learn from them. They need to be protected and helped financially, as a state with traditional values ​​and views, people who have not lost face, and not to lure into their swamp bureaucracy of rudeness and deceit.

      Why are you coming and not staying? Why do you all love her from afar? smile
      Do you think we have the wrong people, all evil and inhuman, not honest and not decent?

      They need to be protected and helped financially, as a state with traditional values ​​and views, people who have not lost face, and not to lure into their swamp bureaucracy of rudeness and deceit.

      Many of you stagger after the war, wanting to help everyone financially. sad Take it and help from your own funds. If people want to live separately, they have to get used to being independent.
      You shit on your own country, it looks like you've lost your own face yes

        Don't be so overwhelmed.
        Belarus is a wonderful country, which has not lost its originality, in the "democratic" development of all the countries around it. An island of friendliness and decency. I cannot call Russia with the same words, but I would very much like to. Something remains traditional in our country, but is about to evaporate.

        Personally, I help, my taxes, which make up more than 50% of the salary I receive, as well as those 50% of taxes of Russian citizens, are also used to help Belarus in the form of loans and other funds. I certainly don’t regret it. Belarus for me remains a real Russian-speaking country, a second home, which can be put on a par with Switzerland.

          Do you pay 50% of taxes? Can you tell us more about this? smile
          You still haven't answered the question. Why didn't "almost Switzerland" become your first home? Confusing tourism with emigration?

      "Man88" - lives in Russia, but writes in some strange language. Or maybe his IQ is below 50? As for me - another provocateur from the unfinished 404.

        If your gray matter is incapable of digesting anything more remotely reminiscent of a fairy tale about a kolobok, I'm sorry for you.

    And what is so fundamentally different between Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian? And I will tell you, about the same as a Ural, Siberian and a resident of the Kuban.

      This is because you are a couch analyst, so you don’t realize that the differences are fundamental.

    We have shown "Santa Barbara" for 10 years (since 1992), we are still looking at integration.

    Luka doesn't need integration. We only need money, which is not necessary to give. And what his country is losing - he cares little, the main thing is that he would keep his chair.

    In fact, Lukashenka dragged his collective farm called “Belarus” into the union state with only one purpose - using the structures of the union state, to get into the presidency of Russia. With the coming of Putin, there was a bummer. Why does a dictator need a union state? So, recently from Grygorych we no longer hear about friendship and brotherhood of peoples. It is clear to everyone that we need to get rid of this multi-vector ghoul before he drags Russia into some kind of world provocation thread.
