BELARUS THE WILD CARD OF CENTRAL EUROPE: The Great Patriotic War was not our war.

Taking everyone by surprise, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko called the Great Patriotic War, was not our war. The Great Patriotic War was dictator Josef Stalin’s mantra for the 1941 ~ 1945 war in which, assisted by the British and American empires, the Soviet Union was kept in Bolshevik manacles.
Marshal Georgy K. Zhukov, in memoirs, says U.S. ‘aid to the Soviet Union during World War II was crucial to the victory over Nazi Germany’. Zhukov’s assessment was important since he was chief of the Soviet general staff and knew all the major details of Moscow’s military effort.
Belarus has always celebrated the three-empire allied military victory over the Reich invaders on May 9, and the day of the liberation of Belarus on July 3. The latter date, at the initiative of Lukashenko, has become Independence Day in Belarus.
However, on the eve of his visit to Kazakhstan, Lukashenko gave an interview to the local Khabar agency. There is a moment in this interview that many did not pay attention to. It seems that for the first time the Great Patriotic War President Alexander Lukashenko described it as ‘not our war.’

‘Independence, we must plan and create life inside the country ourselves. Not someone out there will tell us, as it used to be, from the Kremlin and so on. Belarus, and Kazakhstan, they have always been under someone’s whip, as I often say. Someone urged us; someone tried to kneel, especially in Belarus.’
The popular president of a nation placed between contending empires laments Belarus being used as a battleground for contending ideologies.
‘All these wars are not our wars. The Patriotic War of 1812, Napoleon walked to Moscow and returned through Belarus. Everything was plundered, everything was destroyed.
Then there was the First World War. We got to the point that only a narrow strip remained from Belarus, a part of the eastern provinces was left to Russia, and to Minsk, it was transferred to Poland under the Riga Treaty.
Then there was World War II, we have the Great Patriotic War. Belarus has completely wiped off the face of the earth. These were not our wars. Nevertheless, we gulped sorrow.’
The affable President is regarded as something of a maverick by both Putin’s Russia and the NATO West. Both are aware that Prime Minister Lukashenko is ambiguous towards Adolf Hitler, National Socialist Germany, and the Reich’s pre-emptive attack on the Soviet regime in 1941.
Speaking to Russian NTV in November, 1995, Lukashenko came straight to the point. ‘The history of Germany is a copy of the history of Belarus. Germany has raised from the ruins thanks to firm authority, and not everything connected with that well-known figure, Adolf Hitler, was bad. German order evolved over the centuries and under Hitler it attained its peak.
On another occasion, the president tore into NATO. ‘What human rights can you talk about after Yugoslavia? I don’t mean to offend the West; I’m just using this subject to illustrate my point. What kind of human rights issues, what kind of US interests are there in the Balkans? Why did they bomb the country, causing millions of dollars in damage? What kind of rights can you talk about? And now they start lecturing Russia. This is absurd… this is an internal affair.’
Under no illusions about NATO deception, he addressed Belarusian Radio in 2001: ‘They defended swindlers and rogues. Western envoys rushed to Belarus, bringing in equipment and money. The aim was to undermine the situation, to split society, to sow hatred on religious, ethnic or ideological grounds, and finally to destroy our state sovereignty. These are all techniques of controlled crises, the scenarios of which are worked out by Western special services, while the opposition is a bargaining chip in their plans.’
Falsely described by the West as a dictator, the thrice elected prime minister smiled: ‘they tell me: you are a dictator. Am I a dictator? My position and the state will never allow me to become a dictator. But an authoritarian ruling style is characteristic of me, and I have always admitted it. Why? We could spend hours talking about this. You need to control the country, and the main thing is not to ruin people’s lives.
I have warned the opposition: if you take the situation in the country to the point of absurdity and create conditions for instability and uncontrollability (as you did in neighbouring Ukraine), this will be the first reason for me to urgently start looking for ways to extend my presidential tenure.
