From "vassals" to "family" one step. What from Russia does Lukashenko try to obtain this time?


The new interview of the president of Belarus to Belarus-1 TV channel was again sorted on quotes. If two weeks ago Lukashenko accused Russia of "the barbaric relation", then now, after the meeting in Putin, characterizes the relations between the countries not as "vassal" and as "native" Photos: Mikhail Mettsel / TASS of the Rhetorician of statements of the president of Belarus has cardinally changed. This manner of Alexander Lukashenko all is well-known long ago. Advocating the interests of Belarus, he can speak rather sharply. But then the tone of the Belarusian leader changes, and then he doesn't stint any more compliments which often border on ingratiation. Here and this time Lukashenko at first has accused Russia of "the barbaric attitude" towards Belarus. "They demand something as though we are vassals from us" — he has said. But after the meeting with Vladimir Putin in Sochi has sharply replaced rhetoric. In an interview to Belarus-1 TV channel he already spoke about "proximity" of the states, the general "a Slavic interior", openness and almost family relations: "Mass media, having heard it, this openness — leaks different happen, shout of what not just roughnesses — zaiskrit between presidents, a trouble. Also any inventions and reflections begin. Well, differently. A form at us absolutely different, sometimes just family. We as dear people, we discuss issues and in eyes each other speak about it". Loud statements which Russia and Belarus periodically exchange — a compulsory measure, the associate professor of the political theory of MGIMO considers the MFA of Russia Kirill Koktysh. Thus presidents try to hype up the subordinates. Recently the number of questions, and many of them more than serious slips. Kirill Koktysh associate professor of the political theory of MGIMO MFA of Russia "Stylistics of the Belarusian-Russian relations in many respects compelled. At least, till this moment because any technological, average level between Belarus and Russia just didn't work, and on the level of presidents all questions were taken out: both small, and not basic, and essentially serious. Roughly speaking, to presidents it was necessary both to touch potato and to decide destinies of war and peace. Now the average level, God grant, will earn with the new Russian ambassador and with the new Belarusian government, and in this plan of a problem, perhaps, will be removed". This version receives confirmation in actions. Lukashenko has replaced on August 18 all top of the government. He has said that many ministers don't carry out his instructions because of "the pofigistichesky relation". Now in Belarus the new prime minister, the Deputy Prime Minister, Ministers of Architecture, the industries, communications and informatizations, economies. Also the chairman of strategic military-industrial committee was replaced. The reciprocal course was made also by Vladimir Putin: Mikhail Babich, the former Plenipotentiary Representative in the Volga Federal District is appointed the ambassador of Russia in Minsk. According to Lukashenko, before appointment Putin has called him and has asked whether that will object to this candidate. "Yes the Lord with you" — I have answered Belarusian to a prezida
