Lithuanian MP suggested that Lithuania was "playing with fire" by imposing sanctions against Belarus without coordinating the EU position

39

European media publish a statement by the deputy of the Lithuanian Seimas from the "Liberal Movement" Simonas Gentvilas about the sanctions imposed by the Baltic countries against Belarus. We are talking about the sanctions that Vilnius and its Baltic partners imposed on the President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and a number of Belarusian officials, banning them from entering and announcing "freezing accounts, if any."


Simonas Gentvilas suggested that Lithuania was "playing with fire" by imposing sanctions against Belarus.

The Lithuanian liberal parliamentarian says that for the first time official Vilnius allowed itself to impose sanctions against foreign political figures without agreeing on a common position with other members of the European Union.

Simonas Gentvilas:

Our state has imposed sanctions without agreeing on a common European position. But Belarus can answer toughly. We risk not only economically, but also in terms of security. Now I cannot even rule out military aggression or at least an outbreak on the Lithuanian-Belarusian border. After all, Lukashenka now needs to be confirmed that he is a strong leader, a tough guy. And as the supreme commander in chief, he may well go to mobilize the army.

Gentvilas notes that if Lukashenka does not agree to this, he may close the border with the Baltic countries.

Gentvilas:

Minsk can argue this with anything for legitimacy: for example, a pandemic.

According to the Lithuanian MP, the anti-Belarusian sanctions from Vilnius are short-sighted, since now Belarus "will begin to move towards Russia, towards full integration."

The parliamentarian makes it clear that the EU countries may not stand up for Lithuania, if it is faced with a response from Minsk, since the decision was made without the consent of all partners in the European Union.

Another Lithuanian MP Naglis Puteikis, representing the local self-government body of Klaipeda, says that in the current situation it would be much smarter "to take a break and keep silent for now than to rush forward to Brussels with the introduction of sanctions." According to Puteikis, this is a continuation of "the policy of Dalia Grybauskaite, who barked at her Belarusian neighbors for any reason."

Puteikis in an interview with Euronews:

Now we can see repeated elections with the nomination of a truly pro-Russian candidate. I won't be surprised if Russia succeeds. She knows how to conduct large-scale political campaigns.

In the meantime, the Swiss press released an article that says that while protests are taking place on the streets of Belarusian cities, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is celebrating her birthday in Lithuania.

    In any case, the EU did not impose sanctions against Lukashenka.

    And I didn’t recognize the Cutlet (Sveta) as president ....

      Although the EU allocated money for the protests and the United States will suppress them, so they will introduce it. Well, the Baltic mongrels will bark even without a command.

        Leksander Grygorych - just sobbing from the Baltic sanctions lol because he always dreamed of seeing Vilnius and putting the last penny in one of the Baltic banks crying
        I'm wondering, is it such a national fun for the Balts to run in front of a steam locomotive?

          Self-affirmation. Imagine a country whose population is smaller than the sleeping area of ​​Moscow, well, what role can such a country play in European politics? So this is their "finest hour", the last hour before death. How they will howl when Grygorych takes them seriously after he calms down his pro-Western riffraff.

          As a rule, due to their Baltic mentality, they do not run ahead of the locomotive, but catch up with it. In this case, it looks like the locomotive following in the same direction caught up with them, so they were ahead of all of Europe and, as it turns out, out of place. yes

            laughing good Oh, how did you point out Dmitry !!!! .. Here, most likely the Balts from Poland sensed the partition of Belarus and decided to get ahead of the events, but they miscalculated .. Father is sooooo angry .. And the sanctions will be such that Russia can only dream of them !! !!
            The Balts and Poles simply pushed Belarus into the arms of Russia themselves and without any conditions .. (in Sochi this will be decided soon))))

        of course they will! this is just their personal initiative without agreement with the US or the EU. but since the political level of the limitrophes is below the plinth, the result is appropriate. when they started thinking about the consequences, they didn't think, but now it's too late. true Balts say that the EU will not fit for them.

          In Lithuania alone, seven intermediary foundations have been created, in Poland - about fifteen, which actively paid for all social and humanitarian programs in Belarus.
          Well, in general, you can search the Internet yourself Who, when, how much invests in this business. Guys are paid 30 rubles (approximately $ 12), girls 60 ($ 24)
          The United States maintains sanctions against 17 individuals, including the ruler of Belarus and other high-ranking officials. In addition, we are closely coordinating with our European partners on additional targeted sanctions against all those responsible for human rights violations and repression in Belarus.

            quite right. Lithuania and Poland. it is their own idea and the EU did not take part in this adventure. The EU limited itself to condemning the suppression of protests and that's it.
            the fact that the United States kept the sanctions, so the old sanctions are not related to these events. nothing surprising. the United States did not make any serious pressure or loud statements. Poland and Lithuania very much counted on the support of the EU and the United States, but instead of billions they received sympathy and moral support.

              Well, Lithuania and Poland act independently (I even believe that without the permission of the owner, do you believe in that?), But the discussion of the European Union's sanctions, both individual and sectoral, against Belarus took place on September 11. The United States was also present. And the United States discussed the introduction of new sanctions on existing ones. Pompeo said the adopted sanctions will be announced shortly. Attacks on Belarus are constantly occurring in different European countries. Today they were grunting at the Czech Foreign Ministry, tomorrow the French and so on in turn. Don't make innocent sheep out of these Democratic Democrats. They are pederasty by definition, and it is not their business to poke their nose into the affairs of a foreign country. However, they pop, Suvali and will stick.

                just in this particular case we have an example of a very crooked scam organized by incompetent clowns. in addition to Poland and Lithuania, there is still Ukraine attached. the others are also making a little noise. The Czechs have become quite morose lately ...
                apparently this is an attempt to somehow alleviate their situation in the coming crisis. EU subsidies come to an end, so the little sixes are frantically looking for someone to profit from.

                  It seems to me that in Europe itself they do not understand (or, on the contrary, understand) that with all these sanctions, pressures, confessions and non-confessions of Lukashenka, they are only pushing him towards us, but in fact where else to go. I am annoyed by our inaction (maybe I don’t understand a lot and I’m blind in both eyes), but our president and government should already defend their interests, and not engage in crap (like we do not interfere in the affairs of other countries). We will not interfere, they will. I hope at least we will not give up Belarus to these jackals.

            stop talking nonsense, I hate BCHB, but this does not mean that I am delighted with the AHL (although I am for unification with the Russian Federation).
            Maybe someone is paid, but most of those who go on weekends are people who perceive the world as black and white, they saw injustice, the aggression of riot police, and are protesting against it, and the fact that they are used, well, not their fault that they are ignorant in world politics.
            There are shoals in domestic politics in Belarus and there are many of them, and when the AHL with a brazen face broadcasts that everything is cool with us, it infuriates the young even more.
            The protestors really think that their majority are unaware of them, that there are still villages, small towns, where they don't want to hear about this Lithuanian woman.

    Having staged a coup d'etat in Ukraine, the enemies of the communists in the West, in Europe, on the territory of the USSR, "annexed" Crimea to Russia. By stubbornly insisting on a coup d'etat in Belarus, they may well "annex" Belarus to Russia. Lukashenka simply will have no other choice.
