Belarusian Embassy in Moscow attacks Putin
14:37, — Politics
An article blaming the Russian president has appeared on the official website of the embassy.
The original article was published by the odious communistic newspaper “Sovetskaya Rossiaya”. The website of the Belarusian embassy just reprinted it.
“Lured and arrested – this is the sense of numerous comments from Russia. From the point of view of Russian business and politics the situation 'exceeds all bounds'. It's impossible to imagine in our country that oligarchs or top managers could be arrested only because their commercial activities harmed the state and their pursuit of profits endangered the normal life of the entire region. The main thing is not to quarrel with the authorities. In this case they can use any means to earn money and fear nothing. Okay, they may be asked to return a pen as it was in rebelling Pikalevo in 2009. As I remember, the owner of the loss-making Pikalevo plants returned the pen to Vladimir Putin. Now he continues to bankrupt aluminum plants, the core industry of many towns, turning the whole country into Pikalevo,” the author of the article writes.
He assures that “this ordinary, by Russian standards, business” is regarded by Belarus as “criminal activity”. The author concludes that the attempts to unite two absolutely different state and economic approaches lead to problems sooner or later. In this regard the arrest of Vladislav Baumgertner looks logical, he thinks.
“Russia seems not to care on what money member of the Council of Federation Suleyman Kerimov buys players for his favourite club Anzhi. But Belaruskali knows how to spend the 'extra' money,” the article reads.
The article ends with claims to Vladimir Putin.
“Money is not the only matter. If Russia, a member of the Russian-Belarusian union state, finds this behaviour acceptable, how can we discuss the expansion of the Customs Union and post-Soviet integration (that seems to worry Vladimir Putin so much)? What can Russia offer except for stunts of oligarchs?” the authors wonder.
