The protests in Belarus are continuing, now for over a week, following the elections won (the opposition says ‘no’) by President Alexander Lukashenko.
The protesters are exploiting the general dissatisfaction with the government, and the direction the country has been going for a while, and then Lukashenko government has its obvious faults that have led to discontent brewing. At the same time, the Lukashenko government still remains the only constructive political power in Belarus.
What’s noteworthy, however, is the high level of organization behind the protests that makes it exquisitely dubious for them to be “accidental”.
One of the leading propaganda channels that presented minute-by-minute updates of what is supposedly happening, but also coordinating the actions of protesters on a country-wide scale is Nexta Live, and it is evidently operated out of Poland. MORE HERE
President Alexander Lukashenko stated that aggression had been committed against Belarus.
“Today, many have already come in large numbers here from Poland, Holland, Ukraine, from this “Open Russia” of Navalny, etc. etc. The aggression has already begun against the country,” the Belarusian president said.
Remaining, as we can see, loyal to his “multi-vector policy,” he prefers not to specify the subject of aggression, “spreading responsibility” almost across the continent.
And it is more than obvious who is the main “force” behind the “aggression” – and it is the advent of a new player on the “European field” – Poland.
Poland’s government and its special operations services appear to be playing a significant role in what is transpiring in Belarus. A well-known military expert, a veteran of the GRU Special Forces, General of Staff Sergei Kozlov points out that the organization and coordination of the “Belomaidan” is occupied by the structure of the Polish Armed Forces – the Central Group of Psychological Actions (Centralna Grupa Dzialan Psychologicznych), stationed in Bydgoszcz.
This is a separate military unit, which is directly subordinate to the Ground Forces Command, and is part of the Special Operations Forces.
Its tasks are to provide information and psychological influence on the troops and population of the enemy to achieve political, military and propaganda goals.
Organizationally, the central group includes: headquarters; the intelligence center of psychological warfare, which is its main coordinating part and consists of four departments: collection and processing of information.
- The first is engaged in the analysis of the press and other open information sources in Poland;
- The second is mainly in English-speaking Western countries;
- The third is in Eastern Europe;
- The fourth is in states with conflict situations.
It is under the control of the Central Group that the Polish Internet resources Nexta and Nexta Live appear to operate, which currently appear to be employing all their forces in the Belarusian direction.
However, it is not only Poles who work. The Border Guard Service of Belarus announced the arrest of two Latvian provocateurs trying to enter the country. On August 12th, when checking passengers on the London-Minsk flight, border guards drew attention to two suspicious Latvian citizens born in 1975 and 1993. and they were not allowed into Belarus.
“Both foreigners of athletic build brought with them more than 15 thousand dollars. In addition, the “businessman” also had a tattoo with a Nazi swastika and a wind rose applied to the top,” the department said.
A Telegram community of two Latvians and three Ukrainians was found on the phone of foreigners, who discussed the purchase of military helmets, the amount and type of currency that must be brought to Belarus.
Currently, many sources, including official ones, both in the “independent” and beyond its borders, report on the activities of the special services and neo-Nazi groups of Ukraine in Belarus.
Thus, the aggression against Belarus, about which Lukashenko speaks, is carried out by the union of “limitrophes” – Lithuania, Latvia and Ukraine, under the leadership of Poland.
It is noteworthy that in a hybrid war, this tacit alliance displays a fair amount of independence, going against such pillars of the EU as Germany and France, which are not interested in escalating the conflict in Belarus.
When the Balts and the same Poles were accepted into the EU, “Old Europe” believed that in the face of “these freeloaders” it would receive a source of cheap labor, a “cordon sanitaire” from the then unstable Russia and obedient executors of any will of Brussels, deeply indebted to their “benefactors”.
Turns out they were wrong.
Poland, almost immediately began to demonstrate a fair amount of independence in European affairs, for example, its view of the “progressive” sodomization of society, tolerance and migration policy.
Warsaw cleverly uses the growing contradictions between Washington and Brussels to pursue its own interests, posing as the “beloved wife” of the United States in a European “harem”, and quite successfully.
It was Poland that imposed on the EU the discussion of the “Belarusian issue” and achieved non-recognition of the election results. Now Warsaw is seeking the introduction of sanctions, and not only against Minsk, but also against Moscow.
One of the main historical “dreams” of Warsaw has always been “Greater Poland from sea to sea”.
And today it is seriously trying to implement it, uniting the Baltic states and Ukraine under its “sovereign hand”. In order to close this arc, Belarus must definitely join this “union of limitrophes”.
Thus, in the current situation, Poland is acting not only as a tool of the US policy in Europe, but also as an independent player with its own interests, and even as the leading country of the so far unformed bloc. And what is happening in Belarus could the debut of this union, the spearhead of which is directed precisely against Russia.
