Elections in Belarus had not been honest, said the head of the state Department Mike Pompeo during his visit to Poland. According to him, Washington and Warsaw “support the Belarusian people”. U.S. Secretary of state called on Minsk to negotiate with the protesters. Pompeo also discussed with the head of the Polish government “unified response” to current events in Belarus. In turn, the President of the Republic Alexander Lukashenko said that Minsk does not need any “mediation”. The current rhetoric from some Western countries, experts regard as an attempt of direct interference in the Affairs of a sovereign state.

The presidential election in Belarus was not honest, and Poland and the United States “support the Belarusian people”. This was stated by U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo at a joint press conference with Minister of foreign Affairs of Poland Jacek Czaputowicz.

“the Elections were not free and were not honest… Today we discussed the overall goal is to support the Belarusian people in their quest to gain sovereignty and freedom. These people who go to protests, they seek to defend their right to choose”, — said the head of the American foreign Ministry.

We will remind, on August 9 in Belarus have passed presidential election on which, according to the CEC of the Republic, defeated the current head of state Alexander Lukashenko, scoring 80.1 percent of the vote. After this across the country began protests disagree with this result.

The head of the US state Department also supported the release of the detained participants of protest actions and urged the official Minsk to start negotiations with the protesters.

“We urge the Belarusian authorities to start a dialogue with the Belarusian society,” said Pompeo, noting that the developments in the Republic is troubling.

He also added that Washington is discussing with European partners the situation in Belarus to help the country’s citizens to achieve “sovereignty and freedom”. In addition, Pompeo discussed with the Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki “unified response” to events in Belarus.

According to experts, previously, the U.S. planned to “gently to engage Lukashenko in the anti-Russian game”, asking him a Pro-Western vector and “dilute” it with China. No wonder last year Minsk was visited who was then the adviser to the U.S. President for homeland security John Bolton, recalled in an interview with RT political scientist, associate Professor of philosophical faculty of Moscow state University Boris Mezhuev.

“Pompeo expected that this reversal will continue, and the accusations against Russia that it is for discontent, unrest will continue. However, this did not happen, so now he has nothing left except the Prime Minister of Poland to make such a joint statement,” — said Mezhuev.

In turn, the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko on the background of the arrival in Poland of the Secretary of state said that the Republic has a constitutional government, and it does not need any mediation from other States.

“Listen, we have a normal government created by the Constitution. We don’t need no foreign government, no middlemen. I think that, without offending the leadership of the Republic, I want to say: you place the order,” — said Lukashenko.

We will remind, on August 11 during a visit to Riga by the foreign Minister of Poland Czaputowicz said that the country’s so-called Lublin triangle, which comprises Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine, is ready to “facilitate dialogue” between the Belarusian authorities and the protesters and to take on the role of a mediator in the negotiations.

About a “mediation” in the negotiation process with the participation of Poland and Lithuania on August 13 in an interview with Polish radio said the defense Minister of the Republic Mariusz Blashak.

“This is a joint initiative of Poland and Lithuania, the readiness to mediate in negotiations (between the government and the opposition). It was expressed by the presidents of the two States. There is a initiative in the EU, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, it concerns the meeting of the European Council on the situation in Belarus”, — quotes its words “Interfax”.

From the point of view of Boris mezhueva, Poland, Lithuania, some States of Northern Europe and shadowy forces inside the American establishment trying to interfere in the developments in Belarus, to ultimately “push Russia and the West.”

“Attempts to maneuver, to play on the contradictions, to connect the third force in this conflict, can lead to a dangerous collision. The use of violence against protesters, holding “fraudulent elections”, the denial of the sovereignty of the country in the name of Russia — all this will be in the form of charges brought against Lukashenko USA, Poland, Lithuania, the Nordic countries,” — said Mezhuev.

the Military component

It should be noted that Alexander Lukashenko on August 15, commenting on the events in Belarus and the related statements of officials of neighboring countries also paid special attention to the increasing military presence in Poland and Lithuania.

“I’m more worried about the situation that is unfolding in the territory of neighbouring States — Poland and Lithuania. There, as you know, military exercises of NATO troops. It would also be nothing, but there is a escalation and capacity of the armed component in these areas. Not see it, quietly watching this we naturally can not”, — quotes the President Agency BelTA.

Recall that �� the same day during his visit to Poland, Mike Pompeo and the Minister of defence of the Republic Mariusz Blashak signed an agreement on strengthening military cooperation between Warsaw and Washington.

“as a result of the signing of the Treaty in Poland is not just going to be more U.S. troops and the American military infrastructure, but strengthened the guarantee that in case of danger the soldiers of Poland and the United States will stand shoulder to shoulder and will defend Poland against any threat” — leads TASS words of the President of the Republic of Andrzej Duda, who was present at the signing ceremony of the agreement.

In the framework of this document in Poland will create an advanced command of the 5th corps of the army of the United States, which will lead American armed forces on NATO’s Eastern flank. The agreement also provides accommodation in Poland 1 thousand soldiers of the U.S. army and a further increase in the American contingent.

Here it is worth Recalling that recently the Minister of defense mark Esper openly declared that the United States moved the American army closer to the Russian borders for “containment” of Moscow.

In this context, according to the scientists, current statements of Washington regarding the situation in Belarus should be viewed as a US attempt to “rip” the Minsk from Moscow and thus finally “to separate Russia from Western Europe.”

“a Number of European countries may not want to sever ties, primarily economic, with Russia, to renounce her energy assistance, including in neutralizing COVID-19 or any other threats. And that is why the Secretary of state now once again he tries to embroil Russia and Europe from Belarus, forcing a number of European politicians to make sharp resonant statements,” — said in a conversation with RT, the General Director of the Center for political information Alexei Mukhin.

In his opinion, those statements which now come from the United States and Poland is “direct interference in the internal Affairs of a sovereign state”.

“Compounding the situation is that Belarus is part of a Union state with Russia. This means that these countries are trying to interfere in the internal Affairs of the Union state, including Russia. To open conflict with a nuclear power with a strong army, which has just resolved the situation in Syria, too. However, in Washington realize that another conflict in Europe will lead to a deepening of the crisis in this space, the weakening of the EU economy, that the hand of the White house”, — concluded the expert.
