Belarus

Apologies if posted before and I missed it, but this sort of sums up the headache that Lukashenko is causing Putin:

A performance of "Hearts and Minds", by the Belarusian Security Police, in the Muscovite style:

This is what will ultimately turn Belarusians away from Moscow.
 
The protesters have lost momentum and the initiative



But not the will, or the polarising police response.

'Riot police on Saturday detained hundreds of women as opposition protesters marched through the Belarusian capital Minsk demanding an end to President Alexander Lukashenko's rule.

'Around two thousand women took part in the "Sparkly March", wearing shiny accessories and carrying red-and-white flags of the protest movement.

'Police blocked the women and began dragging them into police vans as they stood with linked hands, swiftly detaining several hundred, an AFP journalist saw.'


 
More Russia than Belarus: The Dying Russians
An outstanding exposé, but as you hinted, it really belongs on the “Dedicated Russian” thread.

The feeling of citizen worthlessness that is described, is the outcome of the totalitarian way of government espoused under the “Muscovite Mindset” which has been in force to greater or lesser degrees in Muscovite controlled territories since the rise of Moscow as a power under the tutelage of the Mongols.

Under the “Muscovite Mindset” the population is regarded as a renewable natural resource for the use of and at the service of the ruler at the apex of the power pyramid.

It is essentially this concept, which the Belarusian nation is rebelling against. This is why it is of such concern to Moscow.

From your link:
"the EU’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, told journalists, adding that he hoped to see agreement at the next EU foreign ministers’ meeting on 12 October. “I understand perfectly that our credibility is at stake.”
In the other news the Pope is Catholic and Ursus arctos has been seen defecating in a forest.

such a shame Russian funny money can buy EU influence.
 
Echoes of the greed, corruption and self-interest of many of the Polish-Lithuanian Magnates (the nobility with the greatest estates) who abused the “Liberum Veto” in the “Sejm” (parliamentary assembly) of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the 18th Century and paved the way for partitions. Attempts at reform came too late. The EU must learn from this.

Agreed, however is the EU capable of learning?

the more important question is, does the EU want to learn?
as well as its existing close ties to Russia via Germany, Hungary, Greece and Cypus, the EU has now started accession talks with Balkan States, some of which are are de facto Russian client States.

EU, Boo Hoo. And which global superpower on the western side of the North Atlantic is the main advocate for maintaining NATO's 'open door' policy?
 
Germany? NATO token box ticker, nothing more
Hungary? NATO? Barely, and only when it suits it.
Greece? More interested in picking fights with Turkey
Balkan States - :rofl:
