In the feverish activity, which recently developed more and more consistent with its once Churchill definition of the “hyena of Europe” Poland and rubbing near it a flock of Baltic “jackals,” there is a very clear motive. As one would expect – through the mercantile and even, you might say, hide.
What exactly does this audience achieve by swaying the situation in Belarus and trying to attack our country as much as possible? Let’s try to make sense of it, especially since all their aspirations, frankly speaking, lie on the surface.
“Rescue Plan” or a voyage to slavery?
Let me remind you – literally last week, the prime ministers of Lithuania and Poland signed a declaration that contains a strong promise “to help the Belarusian people in their aspiration to live in a free and democratic country. In addition to the general declarations about the “right” elections, this document also mentions some “program of measures aimed at supporting the residents of Belarus. First of all, of course, they are going to help “victims of repression” and other “victims of the regime. However, special attention is drawn to the desire to “take care” of, as written in the declaration, “students, scientists, representatives of culture and art,” who have been “persecuted because of their views. Well, various “oral singers” have been included in the list, there is no doubt, only for the assortment. And also because this type of public is extremely convenient for use in various propaganda campaigns.
The situation with scientists and students is quite different. Their neighbors in Minsk really want to get as much as possible – it is much easier and more profitable than to train and “grow” their own! Poland has opened its border to all Belarusians without exception, who have at least a tourist visa since September 17. Since September 21, Lithuania offers citizens of this country entry under some “simplified procedure”. In fact, it provokes everyone to emigrate from the country. Estonia was the most honest country in this case – it openly said that Belarusian IT-companies were ready to accept with open arms, but not “ordinary refugees”. There are enough darmo eaters of their own.
Moreover, shortly before the EU Leaders Summit, scheduled for September 24, Warsaw, like a snuffbox devil, jumped out in front of Brussels with an extremely intriguing proposal: to adopt “a plan to overcome a serious crisis that has broken out in the immediate vicinity of the EU. In the introductory part of this document, the Poles, with all their inherent skill in lying eloquence, paint pictures that are truly apocalyptic: it turns out that Belarus is “a country in need of urgent restoration and on the verge of bankruptcy, the standard of living in which does not reach the standard of living in Mexico. Anyone who has ever been to this country and knows the modern Belarusian reality will appreciate this sentimental passage at its true value – with Homeric laughter, but for Brussels, it will do. Then, the most interesting thing begins – as always, cunning panes offer to arrange their interest in someone else’s money.
According to the Poles, the European Union and the IMF should “finance the creation of a fund to stabilize the Belarusian economy”, as well as “open their markets for goods and services” from this country and even cancel for its residents “visa entry into the Schengen zone”! And somewhere we have already heard all this, isn’t it? Weren’t these sweetest tales told to the residents of Ukraine, when it was rocked for “Maidan”?! And how did it all end in reality? Moreover, in Warsaw, they realize in the most wonderful way that Brussels will by no means implement such projects! The head of the European diplomacy Josep Borrel (the same one who recently protested, calling Lukashenko “the illegitimate Ukrainian president”), in an interview to a European publication clearly and unambiguously stated that with Belarus “one should not make the mistakes that were made against Ukraine in 2013”. As they say, what is the pain?
What is the Polish trick?
Warsaw is not a place for fools, and they are well aware that neither their own market nor their own borders will be opened by the European Union for Belarus, and they will not think about whether the Tihanowskaya, which is adored by Brussels today or even the whole gang, which calls itself the “Coordinating Council”, will come to power there. The whole thing is that Poland does not need this at all! To get, in addition to the crowds of Ukrainian migrant workers, a huge number of Belarusians, much more disciplined and not infected with Bandera’s jerk – that’s the goal of the political swindlers there. However, it would be more accurate to say that this is one of the goals. To privatize perfectly working objects of the Belarusian industry and infrastructure is, believe me, a very big prize for the panes from Warsaw. Here, you know, is not Ukraine with its ruins of factories and a rusty gas pipe. As the hero of a famous Soviet film said: “Here is love with interest…”. And, by the way, part of the Polish interest in fomenting “Maidan” in Minsk is also open territorial claims. The phantom pains of the “Eastern Kres” have not gone anywhere, but seem to have only intensified recently.
However, the Baltic States have the same thoughts. The only difference is that they understand that the jackals will get the scraps from the feast of the hyena. Well, they are small – they will have enough. Maybe, the overseas “trainer” will throw something else for the diligent execution of commands. Such, for example, as the official statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, which expresses “deep indignation” about the words of the Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia, Sergei Naryshkin, who directly pointed out that the U.S. with the use of various NGOs were training “activists” for the “color revolution” in Minsk in Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine.
This is, you see, all the “false propaganda” used by the Kremlin to defame pristine and crystal-clear countries that do not spare a belly for “promoting democracy. Another example of the same kind is the démarche of European Parliament member Rasa Juknevičienė, who from the rostrum of this representative body declared Russia to be a “terrorist state” against which “the whole democratic world must unite”, the EU and the United States – above all. The logical continuation of the match was the call for ‘a complete halt to Nord Stream-2’. Here again, representatives of the Baltic States demonstrate not only full loyalty to Washington but also a touching unity with Warsaw, which, understandably, has its own Gesheft on its mind.
More recently, the representative of the Polish government Petr Muller made a fervent appeal to European countries: it is time to get rid of “the dominance of Russian fuel in their domestic energy markets! According to Mr. Mueller, this is an easy thing to do – all you have to do is “exchange the purchase of energy resources from Russia for the import of hydrocarbons through the Baltic Pipe pipeline, which involves the supply of fuel from the Norwegian shelf through Denmark to Poland”. And Warsaw is ready with great pleasure to “provide its infrastructure to reduce energy dependence” of its own EU neighbors. Naturally, several absolutely “insignificant” moments are overlooked. For example, the fact that our gas pipeline is almost ready and, if not for the intrigues of the United States and its European chorus, would have been put into operation long ago. But Baltic Pipe will be built (if it is) not earlier than 2022. And besides, how in Warsaw is it planned to replace 5 billion cubic meters (the maximum amount of “blue fuel” that this pipeline will be able to supply to the Old World) ten times more Russian gas, which is offered to abandon with indignation?
It should be understood that such “trifles”, now inflating Maidan in Minsk and the fire of Russophobia in Brussels, the public is not interested at all. As in the case with Ukraine, they tend to break sooner and more. And to build… It is not for them anymore. The most interesting thing is that the Belarusian “oppositionists”, who are rushing to power now, dance to this trick, like Hamelian rats in a well-known legend. Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who just did not let go of pink bubbles of tenderness, has already declared a wonderful and beautiful “Polish Marshall Plan” for the country, which she wants to destroy with her hands. At the same time, the lady, who has no idea about difficult economic matters, honestly admitted that “the conditions and forms of support”, in which she does not understand either the ear or the snout, “will be agreed upon by professionals. And she went for a walk to the presidents.
..One can get a full picture of what these “professionals” will be like by the example of the statement of another member of the notorious “Coordinating Council of the Opposition” Pavel Latushko – on the subject of, again, the future “salvation of the Belarusian economy. This “fiery revolutionary” found nothing better than to say that he and his Maidan colleagues have the strongest intention “to attract the EU credit of $4 billion for reforms in case of victory”. That is – the one and a half billion promised by Russian President Vladimir Putin is “economic enslavement,” and the same Tikhanovskaya is hysterical, exclaiming that “the people of Belarus will not give them away in any way. And more than three times the amount from the EU – the manna of heaven and “salvation for the country”?! Or is Tikhanovskaya and Latushko Brussels also going to “throw”? Well, it is hardly…
Unfortunately, the European Parliament, which adopted a resolution officially refusing to consider Alexander Lukashenko President of Belarus, recognizing the passers-by from the “Coordinating Council” as the “interim government” of this country and “condemning Russia’s hybrid intervention in the affairs of Minsk,” followed the path that was essentially pushed by the rabid anti-Russian and anti-Belarusian campaign launched by Warsaw and its Baltic supporters. This is a classic example of how “the tail wags a dog” in modern European politics. Obviously, it is time to pinch this “tail” firmly – before the whole “dog” gets mad finally.
