    Thomas Gomart, Valdai Club expert shares his views on Europe's eastern frontier.

    The current internal political situation in Belarus is unusual. It was not that long ago that President Lukashenko was re-elected in elections seen as unfair by the international community. Unlike other leaders in a similar position, Laurent Gbagbo for instance in Ivory Coast, Lukashenko has been much more successful: he has managed to remain in office, there has been no intervention. The international community is much less interested in the domestic situation inside Belarus by comparison with that in other countries.

    Relations between Belarus and Russia are growing increasingly complicated, in part as a result of President Lukashenko’s personal evolution, but also in the light of the Customs Union project (comprising Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan). Although the Customs Union project has undeniable importance for Moscow, dealing with President Lukashenko is becoming increasingly uncomfortable for Russia. In particular, the way President Lukashenko’s regime has evolved has made it ever more difficult for the Kremlin, and especially for President Medvedev, to continue to deal consistently with this leadership.

    Domestically, the terrible terrorist attack in Minsk will certainly be used by the leadership to justify political restrictions and heightened political control. This is a process that can be observed in many countries, it is common for terror threats to be used to justify the introduction of additional security measures, which can have an impact on civil liberties. So from this point of view I do expect the political leadership will use it to justify an increased concentration of power.

    I don't know if I'm speaking for both of us or just for myself but anyway:

    Since we know now that editec and jillian strongly oppose the dimantlement of the jewish racial dictatorship and the establishment of a democratic state in Palestine that gives the palestinan people the right to move freely in their historical homeland instead of shooting them everytime they try to live Gaza or the WB I FULLY EXPECT TO SEE THEM:

    1 - IN FRONT OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN EMBASSY IN W. DC, MONDAY MORNING, PROTESTING AGAINST THE DISMANTLEMENT OF THE WHITE SOUTH AFRICAN RACIST STATE, DEMANDING THAT BLACKS BE HERDED INTO BANTUSTANS AND TOWNSHIPS AGAIN.

    2 - IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE DEMANDING THAT BLACKS LOSE EACH AND EVERY CIVIL RIGHT THEY GOT IN THE 20TH CENTURY AND THAT INDIANS BE HERDED BACK INTO THEIR RESERVATIONS AND SHOT DOWN WITHOUT MERCY IF THEY MAKE THE SLIGHTEST ATTEMPT TO LEAVE THEM AS GENERAL CUSTER WOULD DO.

    Come on, jillian!!

    Come on, editec!!

    Let's show some logical consistency and basic coherence here!!

    What's good for Israel must surely be good for America and South Africa too!!

    Don't leave for tuesday the pro-racism protest you can make tomorrow morning!!!!

    The Zionist Jews are the most racist people on the planet.

    When there was a world wide embargo against the apartheid government of South Africa.

    The only nation that continued to do business with them and sell them weapons was Israel.
