Scheduled for Tuesday in Rzhev talks of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the head of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko will be difficult, the Belarusian leader had made offensive statements to the Russian leadership, while not having become acquainted with the West, told RIA Novosti Deputy Director of the CIS Institute Vladimir Zharikhin.

The presidents of Russia and Belarus Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko within the framework of the events for the opening of Rzhev of the memorial to the Soviet soldier will hold on Tuesday, 30 June, bilateral talks, told RIA Novosti press-Secretary of Russian leader Dmitry Peskov. Earlier, Lukashenko said at a meeting with Putin wants to discuss foreign interference in elections in the Republic.

"I think that the negotiations will be difficult, but on the surface remains positive. But here much depends on the behavior of Lukashenka, the last months, he often made statements that were quite insulting to the Russian leadership and the story of "BGB", of course, does not improve the atmosphere of negotiations", – said Zharihin.

But, the expert said, the Russian President "all last years tried to be above such hard feelings that their actions and statements often tried to inflict Lukashenko".

"on the other hand, talk one-on-one will not be easy", – said the Agency interlocutor.

Speaking about the latest accusations from Lukashenka that Moscow is trying to interfere in elections in Belarus, scheduled for 9 August, the expert noted that "each time trying to understand – he said it without thinking, or, conversely, by thinking really hard?".

"it Often looks like the man himself beats the rock on the finger," he said.

Zharikhin said that the story of "BGB" disadvantageous to Lukashenko in terms of relations with Russia on the one hand and the West on the other.

"Lukashenko will be difficult to rely on the unconditional support of Russia, which he always received, but it will be difficult to insinuate Russia that he "leaves" to the West, because by his actions he quarrel with the West. That is, on the one hand, he sowed doubts about the reasonableness of their actions among voters sympathetic to Russia, which has traditionally supported Lukashenko, and on the other hand, arrest (the candidate for President Victor) of Babariko and actions against other opponents, to put it mildly is not democratic, he is not attracted and supporters of rapprochement with the West. The situation is very difficult," says the Zharikhin.

In addition, the expert noted that often during visits to Russia, Lukashenko says one thing, and returning to Minsk – is quite another.

The eighteenth of June, was detained by Babariko and his son Eduard, who heads the campaign headquarters of his father. All in all, about 20 people were detained, including the top managers of Belagroprombank. The case materials were transferred to Prosecutor’s office, which opened another criminal case against the defendants, "the case of Belgazprombank," because the Department felt that their actions created a "real threat to the national security interests" of the Republic. Further investigation of the case entrusted to the KGB. Father and son Babariko are in the KGB detention center, they were charged with, but the articles have not been disclosed.

Babariko previously expressed the opinion that the actions of the authorities of the Republic are politically motivated nature on the backdrop of the presidential campaign. The head of the state control Committee Ivan Tertel said that criminal cases against top managers of Belagroprombank and the presidential elections are in no way connected.

Previously, the press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Russia is not going to interfere in the electoral processes in other countries, especially in Belarus. Thus, according to him, Belarus has not presented arguments for intervention in the election process, it makes you wonder about the charges of Minsk in Moscow.
