Belarus reveals unexpected details of integration plan with Russia

Russia proposed to Minsk in 2019 to transfer 95% of the power to the supranational level as part of the integration between the two countries, said the Belarusian Ambassador to Russia Vladimir Semashko.

He called such a proposal “a complete surrender”, BelTA reports. According to the diplomat, the document assumed “giving up everything,” leaving Minsk a few points – for example, the right to call law enforcement agencies “militsiya”, not police.

Semashko noted that equality is important in the creation of the Union State, and the transfer of powers should take place within “reasonable” bounaries. He added that neither Russia nor Belarus “want to lose their sovereignty.”

Last year the presidents of Russia and Belarus considered it possible that they might sign an agreement to integrate the two countries. They even went as far as to specify a possible date for signing – December 8. However, during their meeting in Sochi, the two heads of state could not approve the proposed integration roadmaps.

Minsk-Moscow relations have subsequently deteriorated sharply, primarily because of disputes regarding the price of the energy resources which Belarus buys from Russia.

In the new year, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has repeatedly criticized Russia’s leadership.

    “Semashko noted that equality is important in the creation of the Union State, and the transfer of powers should take place within ‘reasonable’ boundaries.”
    There you have the first two problems: There will be no equality. Period. Belarus will be the serf and mafia land the master. And, there will be no transfer of power within reasonable boundaries. It’s take it all for mafia land. Belarus will be left empty, drained of blood and raped.
    I’m certain that Luka knows all this and then some and that’s why he will continue playing games with the little Moscow punk.
