Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko Believes the United States is Stoking Geopolitical Instability Ab
According to the Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko, the United States government has played a critical role in fanning the flames of major political conflicts worldwide.
Per a report by TASS, Lukashenko made an announcement on National Unity Day on September 17, 2022 where he singled out the US for its role in causing geopolitical instability abroad:
“Washington is engaged in all important political conflicts, but, at the same time, it seems to ignore domestic controversies that already are about to become a civilian standoff.”
National Unity Day commemorates the unification of East Belarus and West Belarus on September 17, 1939, the day when the Soviet Union invaded Poland during World War II.
“America is the only country that benefits from what is going on here: they can show Europe its place and remove rivals in one go. Today it is Ukraine, tomorrow it may be Moldova, or Baltic states, or Poland, or Romania,” he stated.
Per the Belarusian strongman, the world “has gone mad and is about to disintegrate.”
“How is this going to end? It is the first time since the end of the Cold War that the humanity has found itself on the verge of a nuclear conflict. In all this madness, we will have to once again prove our maturity as a nation, our readiness to respond as a single organism to geopolitical challenges of the 21st century,” Lukashenko stated. “Today, we are ready to protect our genuine national borders, to hold our ground.”.
Lukashenko is one of the most intriguing figures in the post-Soviet Union space. He initially tried to lead the Union State integration project — where Russia would add Belarus into its federal structure. Lukashenko’s plot to take control of the Russian state was eventually scuttled when ex-KGB agent
Vladimir Putin took over the positions of Prime Minister and President of Russia.
Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Belarus has embraced a multi-vector foreign policy where it attempted to play the West against Russia. Some experts believe that Belarus’ unconventional foreign policy was the result of Lukashenko’s failed attempt to take over the Union State integration project between Russia and Belarus.
With Russia re-asserting itself as a regional power, Belarus has gradually moved into its sphere of influence. On top of that, the failed color revolution attempt that the US tried to launch against Belarus in 2020, has only solidified Belarus’s drift towards Russia.
In a multipolar environment, countries that have been on the receiving end of the US’s regime change schemes will invariably drift towards the European powers’ orbit — China and Russia.
It’s a whole new geopolitical world out here.
