Valery LEBOVKA, “FACTS”
The sudden appearance and strange behavior in Belarus, the Russian mercenaries PMC Wagner, who fought in the Donbass, could be called as in the interests of the current Belarusian leader and his Kremlin colleagues.
This opinion shared with the audience his YouTube channel, the Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsymbalyuk.
“In the Republic of Belarus are about to be elections, and Alexander G. needs to be re-elected. But he has some problems at work because of the Belarusians it is a little poddostal. And here can be played a very interesting combination: behold, they say, these guys are sent to Lukashenka could show their voters — look, there’s the adversary, bares his teeth. That’s already here is going to send the militants,” — said Tsymbalyuk.
The question, in his opinion, is whether in this case the agreement between Putin and Lukashenko, whereby the latter may be the “defender of the nation.” Or do we see the raging imagination of Vladimir Putin, who hopes that in the case of mass riots in Minsk “vagnerovsky” could shout “Putin, enter armies”.
“It is possible that the first does not exclude the second,” — said Tsymbalyuk.
Also, the journalist suggests that the father could be aware of the plans of Putin, but tried to counteract them.
“On the one hand, Lukashenko is closely monitoring the situation and knew that these guys are already on site. Not just the same as the day before he had said at the meeting with Belarusian military: “we must save the country”. And who has ambitions to take this country? None of the neighbors of the Republic of Belarus no such thoughts. Except closest allies, “—said the journalist.
In turn, the Kremlin believes Tsymbalyuk, would very much like to against Lukashenko, the people rebelled, and he would suppress the rebellion with the blood as it waited in the time of Yanukovych. In this case, Lukashenko would become fully dependent on Moscow.
“Because the Kremlin would be happy to work with poor Alexander Grigoryevich. Because then he will fulfill all those wishes that from time to time are born in the Moscow offices. And if something goes not so, then these guys can be used as a shock force to wreak havoc and unrest. Oh, and then as always comes the “fraternal assistance” and part, and maybe the whole of the Republic of Belarus as a result of the “referendum” suddenly goes to Russia and becomes the Belarusian Federal district”, — said the journalist.
We will remind that on the night of July 29 in Belarus arrested 33 militants of the Russian ICR Wagner. Later it turned out that among the detainees “vagnerova” lots of terrorists “L/DNR”, which is recorded in the database of war criminals on the site “Peacemaker”. In response, the Belarusian authorities have tightened border security and put troops in the strategically important town.
Earlier, the “FACTS” wrote that, despite the attempts of Putin and (or) Lukashenko to blow up the situation in Belarus and to obtain a legitimate reason to use force on the eve of the presidential election, opposition rallies gather more and more participants. So, on Friday, July 30, at the Bangalor square in Minsk a rally was held in support of the opposition presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovski and its ally, Maria Kolesnikova and Veronika Tsepkalo, gathered from 35 to 63 thousand people.
