RAND and the Malevolent Encirclement of Russia – F. William Engdahl

Over recent weeks a series of events in the states surrounding the Russian Federation has erupted that certainly are not being greeted with joy in the Kremlin.

A recentContinue reading “RAND and the Malevolent Encirclement of Russia – F. William Engdahl”

Western Media Propaganda Over Truth-Telling Journalism – Stephen Lendman

Followers of Western establishment media are consistently lied to on major domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

Video: Henningsen – EU Sanctions Against Belarus Will Come at a Price – 21st Century Wire

Russia Slams Western Meddling in Belarus’ Internal Affairs – Stephen Lendman

Time and again, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) sides with Western interests against nations its officials want transformed into vassal states.

US Orchestrated Street Protests Continue in Belarus – Stephen Lendman

Weeks after Belarusian President Lukashenko’s overwhelming August 9 reelection and foiling of an attempt by US dark forces to topple him in favor of pro-Western puppet rule, orchestrated street protests in the country continue.

Did Lukashenko’s Gun Stunt Help or Harm His Image? – Global Research

On the one hand, it presents him as a strong, decisive leader who’s willing to fight and die for his homeland.

Media Propaganda War on Belarus – Stephen Lendman

Belarus is a small nation of about 9.5 million people, bordering Russia and US vassal states Ukraine, Poland, Latvia and Lithuania.

Political nobody challengerContinue reading “Media Propaganda War on Belarus – Stephen Lendman”

Belarus Opposition, Made in the USA – Stephen Lendman

Longstanding US plans earmarked Belarus for regime change, wanting pro-Western puppet rule in another nation bordering Russia. There’s nothing spontaneous about mass protests that erupt in nations the US wants transformed into client states.

Why Is Lukshenko Being Color Revolutioned Just Now? – By F. William Engdahl

The globalist Powers That Be have clearly decided to topple the long-standing sole-ruler of Belarus, President Aleksander Lukashenko. The question is why at just this time? There is a case to be made that one reason is he is being destroyed for his unforgivable coronavirus defiance. In any case Belarus is being hit with aContinue reading “Why Is Lukshenko Being Color Revolutioned Just Now? – By F. William Engdahl”

Belarus ‘Opposition’ Document Reveals Agenda to Pull Country Into NATO and EU – 21st Century Wire

Recent events in Belarus appear to have been designed to move NATO’s ever-expanding eastern front even closer towards Moscow.

Lukashenko Just Hinted at a ‘Phased Leadership Transition’ in Belarus – Global Research

It seems like Lukashenko finally realized that the scenario of his possibly inevitable ouster by one way or another — be it economic collapse caused by a nationwide strike, a “deep state” coup by his security services, resignation, etc. — is becoming more likely by the day, which would explain why he decided to startContinue reading “Lukashenko Just Hinted at a ‘Phased Leadership Transition’ in Belarus – Global Research”

Send in the Clowns for the Circus Is in Town – Edward Curtin

Don’t bother, they’re here, already performing in the center ring under the big top owned and operated by The Umbrella People.

Poland and Lithuania Are Escalating Events in Belarus as They Did with Maidan – Global Research

Effectively, what Lukashenko has done is protected the country from neo-liberal policies that spread throughout Eastern Europe after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, which resulted in many of the industries being shut down or privatized, impoverishing much of the population. Because of this action, Lukashenko earned the nom de guerre of “the last dictator ofContinue reading “Poland and Lithuania Are Escalating Events in Belarus as They Did with Maidan – Global Research”

The Belarus Protests – Maidan 2.0? – American Herald Tribune

The similarities of what has occurred in Ukraine over the past seven years, and the situation that is currently playing out in Belarus, are so far, almost a carbon copy; and the motivations for a Western-friendly regime to be installed in Minsk as it was in Kiev, should be blindingly obvious to onlookers. … WithContinue reading “The Belarus Protests – Maidan 2.0? – American Herald Tribune”

Russian-Belarusian Relations: Back to Being Brothers? Crimea 2.0 Is Unlikely – Global Research

A Russian-Belarusian Rapprochement? Some notable developments occurred since the author’s analysis on Friday about how “Belarus’ ‘Democratic Security’ Operation Shouldn’t Be Exploited For Russophobic Purposes“.

Zakharova slams Macron’s call for supporting Belarusian protests as hypocrisy – The Syria Times

“When will he call on the European Union to be mobilized in support of hundreds of thousands of ‘Yellow Vests’ demonstrators who peacefully seek to ensure respect for their rights, freedoms and sovereignty?

Belarus in the Firing Line for a Colour Revolution – OffGuardian

History is very clear in this precedent: Corruption and/or violence would be no obstacle whatsoever to doing business with the West, were Lukashenko willing to be biddable and serve a NATO-backed Deep State agenda.

European leaders bring flowers to honor a Belarusian terrorist (+important development!) – The Saker

This action is truly breathtaking in its hypocrisy and total delusion. Why?

Belarus – A Color Revolution of a Different Shade? – Global Research

The west has been critical for years about Lukashenko’s human rights records.
