A Road of Pain and Blood

Tens of thousands of people flooded the streets of towns and cities across Belarus this week in protest of last Sunday’s presidential election. The announced results — a landslide victory for the country’s longtime President Alexander Lukashenko — are widely seen as fraudulent. The government’s response to the peaceful demonstrations has been savage violence: Thousands of people have been indiscriminately beaten, shot with rubber bullets, arrested, and held for days in unknown detention centers. Journalists have been among the arrested. This account by Russian reporter Nikita Telizhenko, originally published in Russian on the Ekaterinburg-based outlet Znak, is one of the first detailed glimpses into the horrific abuses taking place in Lukashenko’s detention centers.

If Lukashenka falls, Russia will use it as a pretext to retake White Russia and then there will be unrest in Poland, rinse and repeat. Let Germany deal with this, the Chancellor being the new leader of the free world with her awesome superior military technology and all that.

It's a target rich environment for US Department of State and the CIA. Belarus, Ukraine, Venezuela, Bolivia and so much more.
