The United States has decided not to impose sanctions on Belarus yet

73

It became known about the decision made by the American administration regarding possible restrictive measures against the Republic of Belarus. According to the latest information, at this stage, the US authorities will not impose sanctions against Belarus.


According to the Reuters news service, Washington does not intend to impose sanctions against Minsk, at least at the current stage.

It should be reminded that earlier Washington was considering possible sanctions after the announcement of the results of the presidential elections in Belarus.
From the statement:

The US administration will not impose sanctions yet. Will not join the measures taken by Canada and Great Britain against Belarus.

What restrictive measures on the part of Canada and Britain are we talking about?

As it turned out, the authorities of these countries decided "once again" to freeze the accounts of Alyaksandr Lukashenka, as well as the accounts of six Belarusian officials and Lukashenka’s eldest son, Viktor. Alyaksandr Lukashenka himself has repeatedly said before that he has no accounts in foreign banks.

Speaking about the US decision, it is noted that Washington may impose sanctions against Minsk if the European Union takes a unified position. At the moment, Cyprus does not support sanctions against Belarus. More precisely, the position of Cyprus is that it would support anti-Belarusian sanctions, if at the same time Brussels imposed sanctions against Turkey.

As reported in the European media, the US position that it is not ready to impose sanctions right now "may affect the mood of the Belarusian opposition":

It (the opposition) may consider that there will be no collective support from the West, and that the West has nevertheless de facto recognized Lukashenka as president.

    This is zrada! All zrada zrada! This is a signal to all Baltic mongrels that Lukashenka should be recognized as president. Interestingly, what will Tupanovskaya do now? What pennies to live on? She is already used material, mattress toppers used her and threw her away as a condom. But it was the United States that was the main sponsor of the Belarusian Maidan.

      Maybe America hopes that Lukasheno will also make a big gesture in response - will he continue to feed the Baltic states? And diesel fuel for Ukrainian tanks to Donbass from America is far away. Obviously "democratic" want something in return ...

        Very much so. Belomaidan was blown away, the Ukrainian scenario did not work, so the mattress makers had to stop pressing on Luka, otherwise Rygorych would have had no choice but to go for a real alliance with Russia.

        I think the reason for this move by the United States is somewhat different. The protest movement against Luka in Belarus showed a spontaneous mass character, which the opposition from Tikhanovskaya was hired to lead and direct. In conditions when the Russian Federation openly supported Lukashenko and thus alienated some of the Belarusians (sneezing at these Belarusians, and squeezing the Russians dry and getting a runny nose is the behavior of our government. What do we have in the fall, for example, besides new fines from October 1?), themselves are more cunning and demonstrate sympathy and friendliness towards Belarus. They need to lure the sympathy of the Slavic brothers to themselves, inspire their confidence, initiate their choices and actions. In our foreign policy, such a formulation of questions is not considered at all (see above). Well, they gave money to Lukashenka once again. But not Belarus. The State Department distinguishes between Belarus and Lukashenko and acts on the basis of this difference. We don't make such a distinction: the money was given to Lukashenka, which means to Belarus. And this is no longer the case.

          If everything is the way you, Andrei, described (and it is quite similar to the truth - it fits well into the American style), then now VERY much depends on Lukashenka. The moment of truth for him. Believe it means that this is not the last Maidan for him. The penultimate one, because if they follow the American rat-catcher with a pipe, ours, I hope, will not harness for him the next time, and then he will be a kirdyk. And, most likely, not even political - physical. Hang like Saddam. If he sticks to Russia, he will rule as much as he wants (most likely, until he hands over power by inheritance).

          We stock up on popcorn and see what Grigorich is smart enough for. Will it catch an American hook like a crucian carp on a worm or not ..

            smile Well said about the penultimate Maidan.
            This is what saddens that some ... son, who usurped power and trampled the law, under the wing of our country will rule as much as he wants, until he passes it on by inheritance. Although his place after his crimes is in court and beyond, like Saddam.
            Why should our enemies come to power in a legitimate democratic election? - I have no doubt that it will be so - but why should this happen? The inevitability is not clear Belarusian and ours. If democracy as a system is not for our country - disperse 450 + 178 parasites and thousands of local dummies and dummies, make the governorship and the State Council - but be honest with us, your mother!

      The old man has been in power longer than Putin. He's not stupid enough to count on an American window. After the hostile actions of all but one of his neighbors, he was left with the only window to the outside world, Russia. Having exchanged Russia for the United States, he completely isolates his country. So there is simply no alternative to the union state.

    Since 2008, Belarus has been living under American sanctions, and the grandmothers of Belarusian officials cannot be found. So, all this is an empty phrase.

    The United States has decided not to impose sanctions on Belarus yet
    Presumably the satellites fell into a slight stupor. Did they run ahead of the locomotive again? Macron meets with Tikhonovskaya promising help, Merkel is in a hurry to meet, Poland and Lithuania are emanating from malice, calling a citizen of Belarus Mrs. President and suddenly such misunderstandings. Canada and Great Britain naturally entered the front row, probably believing that Lukashenka will tearfully beg not to impose sanctions (and what kind of sanctions are there - laughter). In short, the circus continues.

    It turns out that the Americans are well aware of the AHLs ... and the essence of the Union State ... Over time, everything will return to normal, and Russia will eventually hear a lot of things from the lips of a loyal ally ... Pompeo turned out to be smarter than one might think ... And the Kremlin would have to more energetically forge iron while it is hot ... In the Belarusian climate, it quickly cools ...

    In vain that they did not enter ... But nothing, where will they go. And the sooner they introduce, the sooner the Old Man together with the Belarusians will come to the Union State https://mmanificarum.blogspot.com/2020/09/blog-post_11.html

    The states will act more sophisticated, more impudent, and possibly even bloody ...
