Belarus

I wouldn't trust her, to not to a agree/suggest, that she fly the buggers direct into Germany :( .

The whole point is that Lukashenko represents a regime that falsified the most recent election results and kept itself in power (with the support of Moscow) against the expressed wish of the Belarusian electorate. Therefore officially negotiating with such a regime implies acceptance of it by those conducting the negotiations. This is the reason why Putin was pushing for the EU to negotiate directly with Lukanshenko.
 
The precedent has now been set, for the rest of Europe - and the UK - to implement repatriation flights !!

Er not quite. They’ve been sent back having made Putin’s point irrespective of their human right. This should be a salutary lesson to Brussels, which it will probably be ignored, having saved the west from the Tyranny of the Russians. Watch how that plays out there.

And to suggest that the UK and EU member states should play by the same rules as Belarus shows how little some wish to uphold Western values.
 

I went looking for confirmation of this article, because on one of this evening’s (Friday 19 November 2021) late night news programmes, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, was filmed as he went “off script”. It might have been during a “Question & Answers” session, after the speech.

Apparently speaking hypothetically, he speculated that if (for whatever reason) Berlin decided it did not want host nuclear weapons . . . NATO would simply move the nuclear weapons eastward, to Poland !!

Expect the MSM to report the repercussions over the weekend !!

That sums up the Muscovite Mindset. It is precisely because those in charge at the Kremlin believe that everyone else sees the world the same way that they do, that they need to pre-empt their perceived enemies before they (i.e. the USA, NATO, the EU) attack them.

As regards the way the majority of western policy makers see Moscow, they look at it from their own point of view and can't understand that under the "Muscovite Mindset" there is no such thing as mutual satisfaction where all parties come away from a negotiation with their goals met. There must be a winner and a loser. It is a "zero-sum game". And for the Kremlin the winner has to be Moscow.



Well, the planned and partially carried out clinical extermination of the Jewish nation and the enslavement and plan to annihilate the Polish nation and others further east seems to negate that argument.

Alternatively, you could look at the mindset of a Red Army WWII soldier who is quoted in the Kiev military Museum.

“My grandson is looking through a rifle site in the east of our country at the grandsons of old comrades. Putin has done this”.

His grandson was later killed.
One of 14,000 Ukrainians thus far.

Because Kremlin propaganda paints all Ukrainians who do not slavishly bow down to Muscovite rule as murderous, fascist, racist, war-mongering enemies of their well-meaning, benevolent, peace-loving, righteous Russian big-brothers or as simple and ignorant fools and idiots who have been deluded by malevolent foreign agents.

Combination of the two
 

Inside Wagnergate: Ukraine’s Brazen Sting Operation to Snare Russian Mercenaries (Bellingcat)​


On 29 July 2020, Belarusian state media announced that the country’s security services had arrested 33 fighters from the Wagner private military contractor. These men were, according to the report, part of a group of more than 200 fighters present in Belarus to destabilise the country in the run-up to its Presidential elections in early August. All of the men, whose names and dates of birth were published in the initial 29 July report, were Russian nationals while a handful also had dual citizenship with Ukraine and Belarus.

Good article and worth a read:

 
Poland has long had quarrels with many of its immediate neighbours, which the Kremlin has always used to create further antipathy. However it is Moscow's belligerent actions which are fuelling rapprochements and better relations as already seen with Germany and Ukraine and increasingly with Lithuania and Czechia.

Saw that. Not really a surprise overall. That said Euro news mentioned the fact that the Ukrainan President is expecting a coup within the next week or so
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says group of Russians and Ukrainians planning coup against him. The Eu doesn't seem to worried that this will materialise-what did someone say? not to expect a winter war? Finland was in winter as well.
 
Lukashenko is just another dictator trying to ride the tiger. He also strikes me as a mediocre little man who's out of his depth. It will end badly for him.
