Anti-Russian rhetoric in Belarus has increased

Anti-Russian rhetoric in Belarus has increased. Moreover, Belarus is being artificially turned away from Russians, with the final goal being to turn these Russians into Poles. Furthermore, Belarus will face similar problems that Poland and other post-socialist states encountered in 2008, i.e. a post-industrial crisis.

Disproof

Unfounded assumptions about Belarus, intented to disqualify the country as sovereign. As regards the Polish post-industrial crisis, Poland never had an economic crisis in the aftermath of the 2007-2008 global crisis, with its GDP PPP per capita constantly growing since 1992. bit.ly/2fIGj11,
