How the Polish Minister of the Belarusian President tried to "probe" ...

47
As you know, not so long ago, the West was so impressed with Minsk and the president of Belarus personally, that he began to reproach himself for the fact that Alexander Lukashenko is still noted in the sanctions list as the “last dictator of Europe”. The “dictatorial crown” was removed from the head of Alexander Grigorievich, and at the same time they decided that it was also time to tie up the sanctions against Belarus.


The strangeness is that during the last years in Europe, the word “Belarus” had “the only possible” associations “about horrific violations of human rights”, “cane dictatorship”, “infringement of the freedoms of dissidents”, and most recently in the EU overnight in Belarus, everything is normal and with dissidents, and with the rights of the rest of the “people”. Whether the European farmers were so influenced by the protests of European farmers with the dumping of manure and rotten apples under the windows of the local parliaments in connection with the Russian embargo, or many people had no idea where Minsk was until now, but found out about its geographical location after the appearance of such a concept as the “Minsk agreements”. In general, to all appearances, several factors came together at once for European “partners”, which led to the fact that Belarus was removed from the sanctions list. And here you don’t even know whether to congratulate the Belarusian brothers on this or not ...

And in order to try to somehow figure out what this first “post-sanctional” stage is for the Belarusian representatives of the Union State, it is worth considering the question of European policy metamorphosis regarding Minsk. If such metamorphosis in general is in practice.

In connection with the “withering” sanctions against the “last dictator of Europe”, the entrance to Alexander Lukashenko to the Schengen zone was closed. They say we will not tolerate the “dictatorial” foot to walk on our land, plowed by the plow of crystalline democracy ... They did not invite the Belarusian president and did not hurry to visit him. And now - the first changes.

One of the representatives of European democratic lights, Witold Vashchikovsky, head of Polish diplomacy, visited the Belarusian leader the other day. It must be said that this is the same Mr. Vashchikovsky, who systematically expresses his concerns about the "aggressive strategy of Moscow." This is the same Vashchikovsky, whom Russian “green men” see everywhere, and who never stops “expressing concern about how Russia, with their help, rejects the territories of other states”. In general, the typical Polish diplomat ...

And this typical Polish diplomat, apparently, was among the first “envoys” to visit Lukashenko with the clear goal to probe the ground to see if it wasn’t time for Minsk to tilt to the West and at the same time reject Russia. And, apparently, it was the Polish Foreign Minister (if only because he was close to Minsk not so far) that was the first one who at least should have tried to explain to the Belarusian leader that the European Union doesn’t just lift sanctions. Well, as if a hint that you, dear Alexander Grigorievich, should make “alaverdi”, which should not be limited to supplies of “Belarusian” shrimps to the Russian market.

In this regard, it is rather curious how Alexander Lukashenko explained to the Polish guest his understanding of the situation. Direct speech of the President of Belarus is presented information portal BelTA:

I will not say that there are problems that are difficult for us to assess. I will not even say that these problems or issues are difficult to solve. If there is will from both sides, we can solve them, moreover, any problems. The main thing is to agree on the criteria. And here, I think, there will be no problems. (...)

I really appreciate the fact that you consider Belarus a sovereign state. Frankly I want to say ... True, this does not apply to Poland. Poland has never put the question like that ... If the partners with whom we are conducting a dialogue insist that you choose with the East or with the West, that is, you with Russia or with Poland, with the European Union, put us before such a choice this position does not suit us. I am absolutely convinced that you do not need it today either. I think that Poland, more than anyone else, as the main player of the European Union, is interested in Belarus being not only an independent state, but also stable. I think you unstable another state in the west (?) after Ukraine is not necessary. This is not good for Poland. But together with you we can play a significant role, being in the epicenter of the European continent. And together we can significantly influence many processes that are taking place here. In our interests, in the interests of Poland and Belarus, but in no way to the detriment of our neighbors. But we will not give up ours either. This is your position, this is our position.


As can be seen, the speech of the President of Belarus clearly had an implication related to the Ukrainian Maidan (the term "European epicenter" is very appropriate here), and how Poland (together with Germany and France) took 21 February 2014 of the year to act as a guarantor of the agreement between Yanukovych and the opposition. Lukashenko hinted to Vashchikovsky that Poland, like its other “guarantors”, then (after the victory of the Maidan Radicals) washed its hands, and that today such a focus on Minsk among the “main players of the European Union” will not pass. Lukashenko made it clear to the Polish visitor that if he is going to promote the Ukrainian scenario in Minsk, Poland will receive another hotbed of instability at its borders. Does Poland need this? - open question. Poland itself, of course, is not necessary, but if you consider that Poland is a pawn in the hands of the world gendarme, then a completely different alignment. And this alignment is well known to Alexander Lukashenko.

Photofact: the Polish minister was seated under the Belarusian flag:



By the way, why did Alexander Lukashenko say about Belarus geographically to Poland: “in the west,” and not in the east? It can be assumed that this is a reservation. But it is believed that the reservation, as they say, according to Freud. By his address to Vashchikovsky, the Belarusian president kept his thoughts on contacts with Russia, making it clear that Russia didn’t need another hotbed near the western borders. The result was what turned out - in one phrase, Lukashenka, as it were, warned two partners at once - both the EU and Russia - that it was not necessary to try to drag Belarus as a rope. Lukashenko wants to partner with both the East and the West. But is this, in our times, a classical utopia? ..

Another interesting statement by Alexander Lukashenko:

As you protect your sovereignty and independence, so will we. Here we have absolutely no differences. Even sometimes we spy on you how to do it. As you carry out the socio-economic policy within the country, so will we. At the same time, we will try to do so that no one will ever rebuke us in a small democracy, in the absence of it. We will do so to make it no less than in Poland. If you are satisfied with this format, we will very quickly agree. I think it will be difficult for you to reject such a format, because we act according to your rules.


In fact, the President of Belarus says that he will not allow the European Union to get into its internal affairs in the same way as the European Union does not allow to interfere (though not all ...) in its internal affairs. Lukashenko says that if the EU is open for partnership with Minsk, then such an obvious rule is stupid not to accept. And in order not to leave Vashchikovsky's chances of distorting the message, Lukashenko adds that this is actually European rules, and therefore it would be strange for the EU to break such rules. Violate - Minsk will immediately make its move.

In general, in this situation, Vashchikovsky for Lukashenko became a collective image of all partners (or “partners” - in quotes) of Minsk. Addressing the Polish minister, the Belarusian leader managed to turn both to the EU as a whole, and to those who actually rule the EU today, and even to Russia. Lukashenko simply has nothing to lose - he presided before the sanctions, during the sanctions and will preside after the sanctions, and therefore he decided that now he can easily afford and determine options for partnership between Belarus and its neighbors and neighbors with Belarus. And if it doesn’t suit anyone today, then Alexander Grigorievich will instantly correct the external “vector” in relation to this “partner” ...

      That's for sure. Moreover, the "loudest" of all will be those who, in general, know nothing about Belarus. I am not delighted with Lukashenka, but it’s better to let him than Yanukovychs, Yeltsins, Merkels and other spineless creatures.

        With one moan, whatever there Rurikovich he didn’t ulcerate, Rygorich’s maneuvers were already boring to everyone, and on the other hand, Belarus was still a separate state with its foreign policy, which is why some movements away from the Russian fairway are quite understandable.

          Who will rule Belarus, when and how much is the choice of the Belarusian people. I've been there. I was pleasantly surprised by the order and cleanliness. EVERYWHERE!!! Do you understand? -everywhere!!! They do not live well. But very worthy! Enterprises are working. Farming too. In sports, if they are inferior to leaders, then not much. There is no need to talk about the cultural component of life. It is hard to believe that a country with a smaller population than we live in Moscow can live so calmly and with dignity. And the arrival of a Pole to probe the situation has the same goals as the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba, the most "democratic country in the world." Well, Old Man - he is the President of the country. And his task is to move it (the country) forward in the economic and so forth. other plans. What he does. And do not look into one place to the great neighbors. The same problem, by the way, is ours. Well, how does anyone get it, everyone can evaluate it ... Or wait for the Levada Center survey, POF or find out from our television ...

            Or at least "one of the Belarusians". How is the "Belarusian people" allowed to resolve this issue?
            The entire political system is imprisoned for one, specific person.
            And who is there and how will "decide"?

            And the arrival of the Pole to probe the situation has the same goals


            That two years ago in Ukraine.

              One country has already added .. that feeds another. What this led to - you can read it here, on this site: every second article about her, this country. And the fat ceased to be snapped there at all. Do not pull the blanket over yourself. We are richer, stronger, ... but that’s all ... Yes, we are still flying into space. But there are far more tractors for agriculture produced there, and even exported to dozens of countries. And there MAZ, BelAZ works there. Yes .. The market for these plants is small. But, I think, they will figure it out. Our market has also narrowed. Therefore, aircraft manufacturing on its knees, electric locomotive engineering, I’m silent about machine tool industry. Something is being restored. And this is good. But with export full kapets. Unless oil, gas and roundwood

            A small gap in the template - salaries for people fell to $ 100-200, factories work for 3-4 days, cut people off, in conditions of dead production they came up with a tax on parasitism, in 2015 prices doubled. You will live in Belarus for a couple of months, you will howl from our "stability and patronage".

              And $ 100-200 is not everywhere. They cut people 4 months ago, what has been laid down by law has not yet been given away.

            I will not speak either good or bad about the president. The answer will manifest itself in the near future. I also agree that ours is clean. But one problem is clearly visible in his "economy". We live as long as we can trade with Russia, we are competitive in its market. But there have been problems with this recently and it is not possible to solve them in the near future.
            We are losing your market, and with it our engineering, agriculture, etc.
            As a result, there are now reductions.
            And last but not least our mechanical engineering, try to get a job, look from the inside, sniff at last.
            I don’t know how it is with you, but if it’s the same as in Minsk, then you do not need cars and gear, but the equipment of a warrior and a Kalashnikov assault rifle. ( God forbid ). Xie

            It is hard to believe that a country with fewer people than we live in Moscow can live so calmly and dignifiedly.

        The political vector of Belarus can certainly change as much as you like, but the price of friendship with the West seems to be known to everyone. They are friends while they are profitable. Lukashenko suddenly ceased to be a dictator. But on the contrary, how does Gaddafi fail? And you don’t need to fraternize with Russia, and so are your relatives.

        Sanctions in action.
        Trade between Poland and its neighbors is rapidly falling.
        Ukraine "helps" everyone.
        An unsuccessful attempt to rebel in heavy loads only worsened the situation.
        Tempting beckons the railway route China-Kazakhstan-Russia-Belarus and for some reason Gdansk. Like the other ports in the Baltic are mute, and pushing the partners of the Baltic states is a holy cause.
        Crush, crush the credits of the football holiday in 2012. And they built roads.
        Lukashenko Alexander Grigorievich is very experienced and has seen "everyone" in different places and it will not work to deceive him.

        Here is your comment exactly to the point. In Ukraine, it all started with the degradation of people in power. It’s not those who can come, but those who need it — relatives or classmates who are loyal, but greedy for horror and dumb. Now we are led by the most natural degenerates.

    The newly-minted Polish gentry has overflowing ambitions. Interestingly, the "main player" in what? There is no dispute on the front of Russophobia, but what else?
    Regarding the above comments from comrades from Belarus, I would like to note that if someone criticizes Lukashenko, then he usually criticizes the case. His statements and throwing sometimes cause a lot of questions.

    Those who do not understand or who can think only tactically are very verbose. The world has always been ruled by only a few (who have a largely independent economy, their own mentality, science ...) and will rule. And what they allow, they more accurately suggest that to blather on their own (be they psheki or others) is also a tactical move, but for strategists. On Earth, those who are naturally able to think strategically are few. It is a pity that these sluggish ukrovs, byalov, chukhons have been numbered ... They took them on subsidies, and they live at the expense of others for decades, feed them either the United States or we. And it is not clear when artificial "nations" begin to rant about independence, but from whom? One can understand when the speakers, inventors in English, who honor their King Arthur, began to be forced by the speakers of German, who also have history, language, science - this is addiction. But when your language is distorted beyond recognition, your science is used, they live at your expense ... Something I don't understand.

    to probe the ground for whether it was time for Minsk to prettyly tilt to the West and at the same time tear itself away from Russia.


    I want to disappoint the author of the article: Russia, Belarus is less and less interesting. You see: any patience sooner or later comes to an end. So Lukashenko has already frankly got it with his games.

    Look you "torn away from Russia" it was decided, but he did not reject.

    Oysters, oysters, and to hell with them, people are trying to cut money using greed and stupidity of both our and their officials. Politically, Russia and Belarus represent a union state, and in which case, everything is clear here. Moreover, having before my eyes an example of banderlogy. It must be crazy to peck at the western bait.

    Look for the roots of the problems of Belarus in Russia. our economies are deadly tied. Tear them apart. will be the same as in Ukraine. Only the people in Belarus are different. I declare this to you authoritatively, as almost 40 years since birth, he lived and served in it.
    We cannot give money, ours and their products are not very popular in the West. But the country and people need to live. here the Old Man is spinning, as it were in a frying pan, so that the country does not bend.
    And whoever wants to can go to any, I emphasize, any city in Belarus, to the most seedy regional center and see that there is order, sorry for taftalogy, an order of magnitude higher than some regional centers of Russia. And people, despite the difficulties and low salaries are kinder than us Russians. You will not see people descending anywhere in Belarus, you will not see evil looks (as we have on public transport) and you will not hear swearing, such as ours on the street (even from young clothes) ...

    Lukashenko is already respectful because he did not allow a color revolution in his country, as happened in Ukraine.
    He skillfully defends the interests of the state in negotiations with Russia. Like it or not.

      Never.

      As soon as ours began to reciprocate "the country of Belarus" fell down.

    "As you know, not so long ago the West was so moved by Minsk and the President of Belarus personally,"
    What can I tell you, you need to be able to care for women. And women can do a lot, if at first a man with a radiant look gives a bouquet of flowers, gallantly cares, treats to coffee, and here some are already rushing to leave (they do not even give a good say goodbye), to be continued.

    PS. I hope that everything is in order with a sense of humor.

    I completely agree that people are kinder, and why so, because Belarus is a reserve of the USSR. because in Belarus there was no capitalism with its bestial grin. there were no dashing 90 either. when shooting disassembly and so on. etc. (after the past 90s, when they frighten Russians with sanctions, it becomes ridiculous).
    Regarding the cultural, swearing, clean people, with a good look. I ask a question. Why do not such people come to the Russian Federation? and ordinary people come who drink worse than us. This is not a condemnation, it is a statement of fact.
    It seems that changes are coming and not very good in the Republic of Belarus. I think this is because industrial production is being transferred to Russia, for example, I learned that KAMAZ will make tractors that MAZ does, it says something! soon, and another production that is now in Belarus will be in Russia. Nothing personal, it's just business!

    In Belarus, what is missing or not needed is needed. This is oil-gas, metal, seafood, etc. But all this is in the Russian Federation. If you could buy it all for rubles bypassing dollars, then Belarus does not need to go out with exports to the West to earn currency. It is necessary to throw out the dollar from mutual settlements, nationalize private central banks, or even work with money without banks and show these bankers that Lukashenko is the boss in Belarus and Putin is in Russia (as I would like to rise above the power of capital).
    If Russia and Belarus are brothers, then at the state level it is necessary to consolidate the economy. And it turns out that private enterprises (or even not private ones) are developing competitive production to the detriment of Russia's political interests - industry is falling in the Republic of Belarus - Maidan - they have lost one more brothers.
    Private traders will only think about politics after a profit. In capitalism, each other is wolves. So it is for the state, if liberalism and the market are at the heart of the relationship — ultimately these are not brothers, but competitors.

    I think we also benefit from the warming of relations between Belarus and the EU, and Belarusian oysters can leak to us, but this corridor can also work in the opposite direction. Really Americans do not hear, the EU is looking for ways to circumvent its own sanctions so I think.
