Putin warns Merkel & Macron to NOT “interfere” in Belarus (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 641.

Via DW (https://www.dw.com/en/merkel-macron-talks-france-offers-eu-mediation-in-belarus-including-russia/a-54639160)…

The leaders of Germany and France discussed the worsening political crisis in Belarusduring talks at French President Emmanuel Macron’s summer retreat on the Cote d’Azur on Thursday.

At a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel following a two-hour meeting, Macron said the European Union could try to mediate an end to the deep public discontent over the disputed election win for strongman Alexander Lukashenko.

Macron said the Belarusian people must find a solution but said that Brussels stands ready to help and insisted that Russia — the ex-Soviet state’s closest ally — should be included in the dialogue.

But he also warned Moscow against any aggressive intervention in its neighbor’s affairs.

Merkel, meanwhile, said that Lukashenko “has not sought to speak to any of us [EU leaders],” despite facing a growing post-election protest movement that has brought hundreds of thousands of people onto the streets.

Some protesters gathered again in Minsk on Wednesday evening, defying Lukashenko’s latest order to his police to clear the streets of the capital after a week and a half of rallies against his rule.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes Pompeo is busy lying, cheating and stealing his way into the hearts and minds of Belarus’ opposition.

He’s already been to Lithuania whispering sweet nothings in their ear.

….and now his envoy is whispering sweetness into the housewife politician’s ears. We’ll see what she’s made of soon enough I guess.

No doubt we’ll be seeing another EU offer soon enough, with the de rigueur NATO co-operation addendum in fine print.

I doubt Belarus will join NATO as it’s already in a military pact which includes the Russian Federation and other former soviet country’s. I think President Lukashenko has learnt from what has happened to Ukraine and isn’t willing to make the same mistake.

Lukashenko may have but what percentage of the population has? That’s the kicker. I smell serious change in the air. The question will be, will it be the ‘evolution preferable to revolution’ meme Putin once used or will it be the opposite, the one that USNATO seems to prefer when it meets resistance.

Those large numbers demonstrating are mostly unhappy workers that are against Lukashenko negotiating loans with the IMF as they are well aware that the main condition is privatization. Lukashenko was trying to sit on two chairs and nearly fell through the crack. He first negotiated with Russia but when the Russians would not agree to his conditions he had a tantrum and ran off to the IMF. Belorussians are not against Russia, in fact they see themselves as very close to their Slav brothers. This is not Ukraine. Plus Russia will never allow Belorussia to convert to “freedom and democracy”.… Read more »

European Union is a private corporation run by criminals and not at all a union of European nations. Belarus people must understand this and go away of it. We, the European population, want all to get out of this E.U. that is just a destructive bullshit ! Belarus people, don’t believe E.U. is a kind of paradise ! It’s HELL ! And once you’re in, you cannot get out anymore !

Well, I can’t speak for Putin’s intentions with Belarus but viewing it all from the west, I can say with a high degree of certainty, western meddling will bring the kiss of death to any post Lukashenko Belarus they may have in their plans. The US always has a way of using the EU as a trojan horse infested with ringworm.

“Merkel, meanwhile, said that Lukashenko “has not sought to speak to any of us [EU leaders],” ..

Why should he speak to any of those EU apparatchiks? Belarus is not part of the EU.
