Belarus are small fry. He thinks he is high and mighty being a dictator
Why are you assuming Russia is right on this one? They owe Belarus money.
Spiegel writes that Belarus is in dept to Russia already about 192 Billion Dollar.
At first Belarus accepted the dept and asked for two weeks to get the money.
Russia offered Belarus to pay in naturalia but Belarus declined. Again Minsk threatens
with cutting the pipes to western Europe. Lukashenko saying "Russias demands are humiliating
the belarussian people"!
Now Russia says western Europe will get their stuff through the Ukraine...it's strictly between
Russia and Belarus.
My opinon: Someone is trying to play the victim card to not having to pay up...and it's not Russia.
