The behavior of the Belarusian dictator evokes many of the most contradictory feelings among the people inhabiting the so-called “Union State” in both its parts - in Belarus itself and in Russia.
Let us recall how this "faithful ally" broadcast from the high rostrum that "Ukraine was destroyed, part of the territory was chopped off", that they had "forgotten that Georgia lost almost a third of its territory, first Abkhazia, then South Ossetia". And a couple of days before the presidential elections in the summer of 2020, in an interview with Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon, he said: “I would have fought for the Crimea! Thousands of people would go to bed there!".
And here is a new example of the phenomenal "ally" position. Now Lukashenko’s position was explained by Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei, who in an interview with Russian journalists said the following: “We understand in reality that Crimea is now Russian territory. Let's proceed from this..."
Translated into Russian from the diplomatic language, his words sound like this - de facto now, of course, Crimea is Russian, but de jure I don’t know, you’ll ask Lukashenko….
So in Kiev, they have already stated that they proceed from the fact that Minsk de jure considers Crimea to be Ukrainian.
I wonder how many more years Lukashenko intends to sit on two chairs at once?
