Paviel Sieviaryniec: Lukashenka has taken hostages at every front
12:22, — Politics
The dictator expects that the arrest of priest Lazar will make Vatican open Europe for the Belarusian regime.
Such an opinion was shared by a political prisoner Paviel Sieviaryniec, as he commented on priest Lazar’s having been charged with state treason.
“Church in general is a foreign force and threat for the current regime. We know very well the price of those charges that are fabricated in KGB jail and we believe neither the investigation nor the processes in the spirit of Stalin times. I would remind that over five thousand people have already signed the demand to release the arrested priest Lazar”, - the politician noted.
He believes that the Lukashenka regime has understood that neither oil, nor gas, nor even potassium is the most profitable kind of goods, but people.
“You may take political prisoners and believers hostages. You may take Uralkali’s head hostage. But in the case with Baumgartner the authorities even name the price and openly bargain. The same, in my view, is going on with the rest, but in a more concealed manner. On the matter of political prisoners they speak with Europe, on the priest - with Vatican. Apart from being the largest Christian church, Vatican is also diplomacy, influence and the possibility to act all around the world. I do not rule out that the current regime shows or demands from Vatican that it would work in the European direction. To put it differently, that it would open Europe for the regime. I think Lukashenka still has such hopes left from the time that he visited the Pope. Since the Catholic Church is not following the way of opening doors for the dictator, the regime takes a hostage in response”, - the political prisoner is convinced.
He highlighted that the policy of terror is the base of the current regime.
“I also recollect the recent case of Viachaslau Sheleh, who had his daughter kidnapped. These methods cannot be qualified as anything else but terrorism. As a rule, authorities are compelled to negotiate with terrorists. But purposeful concessions to terrorists are considered a weakness. Now the Kremlin, that has brought Lukashenka up to its own trouble, does not know how to wash off the shame. Neither do Europeans know what to do with him. But deep down the main responsibility of getting rid of this regime is on us, the Belarusians”, - Paviel Sieviaryniec concluded.
We would remind that on 26 July Lukashenka said about the detention of an agent of Belarusian special services, who had worked for foreign states via the representatives of the Catholic Church.
The special service agent, the ruler specified, “did not only provide information, but due to his activities people suffered, who worked abroad”. In some time it became known that priest Vladislav Lazar had been detained. He is charged with passing money to a “spy”.
