Lukashenko Closes Border With Poland, Lithuania, Strengthens Border With Ukraine

Illustrative image. Click to see full-size image

On September 17th, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko announced he was putting troops on high alert and closing the country’s borders to Poland, Lithuania, and with the EU, overall.

“We are forced to withdraw troops from the streets, put the army on high alert, and close the state border on the West, primarily with Lithuania and Poland,” Lukashenko said.

President Alexander Lukashenko’s decision to close the borders with Poland and Lithuania underlines his repeated claim that the protests are driven by the West.

Protests began after the August 9 presidential election that official results say gave the authoritarian leader a sixth term in office; opponents say the results were manipulated.

He further said that the border control with Ukraine would be strengthened.

“I don’t want my country to be at war. Moreover, I don’t want Belarus and Poland, Lithuania to turn into a theatre of military operations where our issues will not be resolved,” he said.

“Therefore, today in front of this hall of the most beautiful, advanced, patriotic people I want to appeal to the peoples of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine — stop your crazy politicians, don’t let war break out.”

Latvia was unmentioned, but it also appears to remain relatively silent regarding the situation in Belarus.

Lukashenko also condemned the European Parliament’s decision not to recognize the Belarusian elections.

“I want to say the following in response to this, so that no one worries in Russia or Belarus. We held elections based on the constitution and laws of our country, and we don’t require recognition from anyone,” he said.

Earlier on the same day, opposition leader, who is still in Lithuania, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya said activists are compiling a list of law enforcement officers who were allegedly involved in violence against protesters denouncing the results of the vote.

Tikhanovskaya is also to visit the European Parliament and meet with the EU’s Foreign ministers.

On September 16th, the former stay at home housewife and English teacher said that she would guarantee Lukashenko’s “safety” if he left power “peacefully.”

Tikhanovskaya said:

“This is all discussed. Of course, if he leaves peacefully, humanly, there is such a possibility. You can even say confidence. Personally, I have to speak for all people. And the opinion of all people will be taken into account in this matter.”

When asked about Lukashenko’s security guarantees, Tikhanovskaya replied that the president would receive “even more.” At the same time, she did not specify what she meant by “big” guarantees.”

On September 18th, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said, during a trip to Lithuania, that the two countries will continue to offer medical and material assistance to Belarusians who were hurt and persecuted during the protests.

He argued the EU and international lenders should offer at least one billion euros ($1.18bn) in economic support for Belarus and its businesses.

Faggot parades are FORBIDDEN in Russia while donkey humping is favorite sport in Turkey

Servet Köseoğlu

ı dont have any idea about it…but ı know some serious russian fetish..

HiaNd

Faggot parades are forbidden by the Russian law and same goes for foreign NGO’s (like Soros or State Department-CIA NGO called “USAID” for example )

Servet Köseoğlu

ı know faggot parades are forbidden there but this doesnt change the nature of faggots and they are touching each others at cheap motels,pensions organising faggot days at their homes.

Russia is democracy, maybe rigid and with autocratic inclination but democracy all the same. Nobody is prosecuted for their religions, sexual and other preferences as long as they don’t do something against Russian law of course.

So maybe it is not good idea to compare Russia with the Turkey where half of the population is in prison.

Servet Köseoğlu

dont exaggerate…people who are in prison members of cia network aka ”gladio”..

Concrete Mike

Right , you claim cia is your opponent.

Why do you bend over backwards to help cia in supporting jabhat al nusrah then?

Bitch please. Turkey has ZERO credibility, fuck all, because of its supports to the orc headchoppers.

You are also helping Israel.

Your country has become a laughing stock!

What kind of fucking muslim are you anyways, turning your back on the palestinians, we can see through your crocodile tears.

Servet Köseoğlu

1)Turkey’s political scene is mainly divided between 4 parties – AKP (Islamists), CHP (secularists), MHP (nationalists) and HDP (Kurds).
AKP is heavily into neo-Ottomanism, and as Ottoman fanboys a lot of them obviously still have a bone to pick with Arabs in general and Palestinians in particular over their “betrayal”.
CHP are pro-western and are hardcore secularists, so they associate Arabs/Palestinians with Islamism and in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict view Israelis as the “civilized”, secular, pro-western side fighting against the “backwards”, Islamist Palestinians, so naturally there isn’t much sympathy towards Palestine among CHP voters.
MHP are right-wing nationalists, and with the influx of millions of Arab migrants and refugees to Turkey their disdain as nationalists turned towards Arabs lately.

HDP are essentially the Kurdish party, and needless to say Kurds don’t tend to get along with Arabs too much, especially in light of leaders such as Assad and Saddam Hussein and Israel’s support for Kurdish separatist movements.

So there isn’t much room for sympathy to Palestinians across all political sides in Turkey in general, there are obvious exceptions (some of the more hardcore Muslims in Turkey that are into the idea of ummah consider Palestinians to be their brothers in faith and therefore sympathize with them, some far-left Turks tend to side with Palestinians like all leftists do, some Kurds view the Palestinian struggle as similar to theirs, etc) but in general it is the way I described it above.

What doesn’t help is PLO historically working with PKK and Palestine opposing Turkey’s operation Peace Spring in Syria after all that Turks have done for Palestinians.
There are Turks that died during the Gaza flotilla raid just to get aid to Palestinians, and that’s how quickly Palestinians turn on Turks the moment they see the slightest cooperation between Turks and Israelis, even though even during it Turkey still made sure Israel will help Palestinians too?
2)Obama formed al-nusrah but after the coup lots of things changed.You cannot expect us to get rid of usa thats not gonna happen in the blink of an eye…since usa is supporting sdf-pkk we will support al-nusrah aka fsa.Useful,handy tools knows the terrain etc.
3)we have trade with israel but we are in absolutely at different poles for the time being.(eastmed,gazza issue,pkk)
4)Turkey always find its way to surface,no worries. Zero credibility is nonsense term still all countries is making business with us. My two cents..

Servet Köseoğlu

My comment was spammed.it was well-laid summary.pity…

Pathetic retort.

I cant expect much from an orc can I?

O course we can expand list of undesirable countries with most of the west Europe, Germany, UK and undisputed number one shithole on this planet – the US of A!
No one from the mentioned countries wants to live in Russia?
Good, good, very good, we don’t need those lunatic fagots with their view that democracy is when your head is in someone’s ass and someone’s dick is in your ass.

says the insecure feminized amerikan…”only in amerika is the father vestigial; the amerikan mind and conscience is feminine”. Geoffrey Gorer
‘The amerikan People’—of course he found the reverse in his ethnography, ‘The Great Russian People’
LOL

Jens Holm

It was in the good old days with Stalin and Hitler. What about them. They were feminized or machos of the worst kind??

I expect Russians cars are better then the american ones, because their Ford 1928 is outdated.

And Your conclusion of course is, we all should drive Russian cars, because they have a better heatingssystem…

You live in US a SOCIALIST – ANTIFA Paradise !

That he didn’t close border with the Ukraine is only can be seen as last warning to Ukraine

(which is far to lenient and show that he is ready to forgive Ukraine and prefer even now to sit on 2 chairs like before instead of being total allay to Putin who supports him despite all the problems in the past )

Raptar Driver

This is a good move and maybe a little late.

Jens Holm

Sending troops away like that only an be seen, so they dont uprise against him.

Not a single sign for anybody in the whole world will take over this Russian museum.

This is what Yanukovych should have done in ukraine,but he gave the keys of kiev to Insane John McCain.

Belarus might benefit from becoming a Baltic state and Lithuania could help by becoming a militarily forced union state with Belarus.

They seem to like the idea of hosting Belarus already.

Jens Holm

You are far out biased by Putin and Lukashenko.

Read some sober history book about it. No Western medias of today says anything like that at all as well.

Poland stopped existing by being divided by Russia, Germany and Austria-Hungary. Until then Belarus and Lituania was as part of “Great Poland”.

By that there is nothing strange in Poland as well as Lituania wish good relations back and Belarus are free to do as they want themselves under non Lukashenko conditions.

But You has to remember it was Poland taking over Lituania and Belarus partly in religion and a lot in Feual rules as well as language. By that Belarus also has old sceptisisme.

Another part of it is seen by an after WW2 map. comment image

All Poles was deported west to Poland of today.by Russia. So what You see are children and grandchildren to Poles, which lived in Lituania, Belarus and Ukraine.

Even its not their country anymore, I think they are allowed to be worried and wish some sober changes.

Fog of War

There are alot of strange things here.
1) Close the borders with Poland, and Lithuania ( a good move ). Leave the border open with the Ukraine ( why ??? ) .
2) What war possible war is Lukashenko talking about ? Does he know something ??

Allegedly Poland and Lithuania wish to colonise Belarus. Plus, Poland has to start paying the EU Loans back, from me t year.

Jens Holm

You are sick. Its only true Russia by their Neocolonialisme has moved Belarus and Poland more west and Belarus actually for centuries ws Polan/Lituania. Russia ate it.

We see it in their red white flag, which is the polish colors too.

This is about fair elections in Belarus and nothing else apart from those Belarus as an own country decide who to trade and relate to.

Belarus has no value for EU as well as Nato. We need nothing from there.

And no, its not about loans. You have no idea about Polish economy as well as they are doing fine. We help them giving them money by money help and also investments.. Many poles work in EU and by that send money home too. – And they actually are helping themselves very well in most things.

Whats to take in Belaruss, which we dont have?? Radioactivity from Tjernobyl or whatcomment image

AM Hants

They had fair elections.

Jens Holm

In which country?

JIMI JAMES

Peoples in the knows prefer the strong leader compared to 3 slutty medusas!

Jens Holm

I can only compare and see fx GDP or how long people live and lives well.

Jens Holm

You not even have an idea about how we do as well as language for it.

And You not even try even You see it works well because You are not raised with a context for it.,

Styx

Excellent observation.

I would even go as far as replacing “allegedly” with “almost certainly” ..

AM Hants

Remember Yanukovich, on 21 February 2014. Witnessed by the Polish, French and German Foreign Ministers, acting for the EU? He signed the agreement to stand down, revert the constitution back to 2004, bring the elections, due later that year forward, in return for a peaceful transition.

Hours later him and his family were being rescued by Russia, owing to an assassination attempt on Yanukovich and his family.

$oro$ and the MED were behind The Maidan’. Same $oro$ who heavily funds the Atlantic Council and so many MEPs. How many Polish MPs have links to $oro$, Burisma Holdings (also funding Atlantic Council) and the Atlantic Council?

Jens Holm

Zorro was here as Mossad too. Camouflaged as muslim women covering her curly hair smoking Rotchild chgars and drinking Rotschild wine.

According to many here Jews mustt be the Majority in the world, if they include the Khazars. comment image
