Expert: Russia may adopt Lukashenka's methods in the fight against EU sanctions


The use of brute force by the Polish security forces on the Belarusian border to prevent refugees from breaking through could have far-reaching consequences for the entire European Union. This opinion was expressed by the author of the migration agreement between the EU and Turkey, Austrian sociologist Gerald Knaus. The expert believes that the member states are adopting such methods of fighting migrants, which seemed inconceivable back in 2015.


Knaus recalled the statements of the German political party "Alternative for Germany, which offered to defend the borders of Germany by any means, including the use of weapons. Then these ideas caused a storm of indignation among other politicians. Today Poland follows this principle, using special equipment on the Belarusian border and shooting over their heads of refugees.

The EU no longer intends to adhere to its values ​​and feels extremely helpless

- the sociologist believes, stressing that the result of such tough actions will be the strategic, political and ideological defeat of Europe.

Knaus is sure that soon the public will demand from the European leaders to start negotiating with Minsk and will advocate the lifting of sanctions against Belarus.

The next time the EU is about to impose new sanctions against Russia due to the situation in Ukraine, crowds of refugees may appear already on the Baltic border of the EU.

- the expert predicts.

      In fact, they scare the naked hedgehog.

      Naked well ... now in Europe.
      With its declared policy of multiculturalism.

      Hedgehogs wander to the promised land, and they are greeted with barbed Polish wire.

      PS I would hoist the LGBT rainbow flag over the camp of the traveling people, they would have a real chance to cross the border ...

        Well, our media have been announcing for 200 years, everything does not get bored.
        With migrants for 10 years, it also does not bother.
        The Poles, the Balts do not let them in, but they continue to announce everything out of habit.

        The illegal crossing of state borders has not yet been canceled.

        Someone from there wrote that those who had come in large numbers were already dispersed to the nearest regions of the Republic of Belarus (with consequences).

        Vaughn, 123 dug up data that the Poles and the Balts are overtaking everyone in terms of economic growth right now, it turns out. (which is strange and directly contradicts the media articles)

        So you can safely stick the LGBT flag personally into the land of Belarus, as you wanted, let's see what happens (after such a statement about yourself, then).

      "But father" dared, because behind him is Russia, which will always help him, and she has to really rely only on herself. Such is the difference.

      Let Lithuania try to block the transit, I'm afraid that it will come back to haunt her.

        It is strange when Russia in 2008 withdrew tanks from the Kaliningrad region and Lithuania did not allow transit through its territory did not backfire wink

      And what is left of that transit there? Is it so vital for Russia that it will want to surrender immediately? Yes, the Balts themselves on their knees beg from Russia to increase transit to their ports.

        I don’t know what kind of Balts there are begging for, but Lithuania copes on its own smile As for the Kaliningrad transit - the railway transit alone in 2019 amounted to 7,7 million tons smile Now, if they are gone, how many ferries and planes will be needed to provide the region?

    Putin has many more tools to influence the EU than Lukashenko. This is a ban on the transit of cargo by sea, air, rail ... Refusal to export cheap natural and energy resources to Europe. A ban on buying consumer goods (household appliances, equipment, machine tools ... and so on). But, our Guarantor is a kind person, he will not agree to this! ... Everything will come down to the menacing roar of the Foreign Ministry and another Chinese warning.

    Alexander Grigorievich is great - they are imposing sanctions on him, and why should he protect the border from the influx of people who want to get into the EU. Others are even paid for this, but he is only blamed for everything, as if he unleashed a war in Syria, Libya, Iraq and other state entities whose citizens are fleeing to the EU.
    The Russian Federation should have long ago adopted the methods of A.G. Lukashenko in response to EU sanctions, as well as introduced protective duties on the transit of goods and people from the EU through the territory of the Russian Federation

    Russia may take Lukashenka's methods in the fight against EU sanctions

    If I wanted to, I would have taken these methods a long time ago. Then there will be fewer people infected with coronavirus and other infection from Europe.
