Another Step Towards Ukraine-Like Scenario For Belarus

Sweden will use the name “Belarus” instead of the former “White Russia” in the Swedish language, the Swedish Foreign Ministry said in a statement on its website.

“This is a recognition of the Belarusian civil society and the people who have long wanted to emphasize the national identity and sovereignty of their country,” Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Ann Linde said commenting on the decision.

As of today, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs will use the name “Belarus” instead of “Vitryssland”, which can be translated as “White Russia” in its official contacts. The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs also recommends using the name “Belarus” in Swedish from now on.

The Swedish side explained its decision with demands of the Belarusian civil society and the diaspora, and the need to emphasize the national identity and sovereignty of Belarus.

The decision was made amid the first visit of the Swedish foreign minister to Belarus since 1992 when an agreement on diplomatic relations between our countries was signed in Minsk.

This is the third time Belarus’ Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei met with Ann Linde after her appointment in September 2019. This is a record high for such a short period, the minister noted. The sides discussed the agreements on visa facilitation and readmission, ways to intensify work on the Belarus-EU partnership priorities, prospects for the framework agreement with the EU, Belarus’ accession to the WTO, development of the Eastern Partnership post 2020 and the regional security.

The “White Russia” is a historic term describing the territory of modern Belarus. The decision to drop this term, additionally to the intesification of contacts between the EU and Belarus, demonstrated that the EU bureaucracy and global elites affilated with it seek to put Belarus on Ukrane’s track. To achieve this goal they need to set conditions for geopolitical agression in the region. One of the current goals is to cut off the associative link between Russia and Belarus (the White Russia) in the public media sphere. Another point of pressure is attempts to fuel the local anti-Russian nationalism in Belarus.

Who’s Ann Lind? Some anonymous person, placed there by Americans, American administration, or to say this way, by CIA.
Ukraine scenario happened once, and no more.
There are too strong relations between Br and Russia.
We have seen this instignations of nationalisms to many times before, you should change your tactics, it is becoming stupid and useless.


Agree. This is disinfo piece by HATO supporting group. Lund is Smith/Jones/Brown.

Perhaps Russia might want to use the name ‘Eid-en’ instead of Sweden to describe the former Nordic European Christian state?

Poor Sweden, once they were mighty Vikings and now they are retarded minions of the beast power getting raped by darkeys on their own streets.

Well, there is no Slav on the planet that will notice any change in semantic perception of these two. Unlike with Malarus-2-Ukraine transition, this one brakes no cognitive trace

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
