The methods of dealing with protesters in Belarus, who were dispersed with water cannons and rubber bullets after the 2020 elections, are quite adequate to the situation, and Alexander Lukashenko, who has led the country for 27 years, behaved like a caring person and a “daddy”.

This was stated by the deputy of the State Duma from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Valery Rashkin.

This is what the head of the Moscow City Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Rashkin said about Lukashenko, commenting on the plans to create a Union State, which could be headed by Lukashenko.

No deception, but criticism

As you know, thousands of protests in Belarus began after the publication of the election results, in which, according to the republican CEC, Lukashenko received more than 80%. Tear gas, stun grenades, water cannons and rubber bullets were used against the protesters, among whom were children and the elderly, and the detainees were beaten and tortured. As of August 13, 700 civilians were injured, five people died, and 17.6 thousand people were detained.

According to Rashkin, Lukashenko loves Belarusians - “his children”, but he is ready to punish them. “But, on the other hand, those who violate the priest also need to be given. There is nothing special here. Strict but fair. Everything is fine, I approve of the actions in this case, he said.

Rashkin recalled that the president of the republic is called "dad", as he is supported by the people.

“I think it’s here as an argument - it’s not for nothing that they call him a daddy. And who is called dad? Caring person. And, of course, those who want to live in the same riotous life are not happy. And here they will say whatever they want to him - and they have chosen the wrong thing, and so on, and people call him "dad", - said the communist.

No deception, but criticism

The protesters accused the current government of falsifying the election results. The OSCE recommended canceling the results of the elections in Belarus and calling for re-elections. The report noted that the allegations that the elections were not free and fair were confirmed.

Assessing the accusations of falsifying the results of the presidential elections, which sounded against Lukashenko, Rashkin said that "this is unjustified". In addition, the communist stressed that those who criticize Lukashenko's actions and policies should take a closer look at themselves.

“And whoever does not approve, or who deserves such an attitude towards him, let him, this violator, be critical of himself. Why did he do that, who moves him”, - the communist noted.

More than 4 thousand criminal cases were initiated against people who took to the streets. Opposition leaders received real terms of imprisonment.
