The Poles have exalted themselves this week. The impression is that they again, as if at the beginning of the 17th century, are trying to arrange the Time of Troubles on our territory. That lesson has never been learned. And Poland, in alliance with Lithuania, returns to its old ways.
And of course, this whole story is not about Belarus. The goal is to make a mess of Russia. For Poland and Lithuania, this is already a centuries-old idea. Today their reanimate it. They believe it is a new chance.
There is no destabilisation in the country [of Belarus]. And you know, if it were not for the external factor, this would not have had happened. Both we and the Russians know who is in charge and from where. The Americans are running it from the centre near Warsaw through well-known telegram channels.
The Coordination Council, about which the opposition talks so much, does not represent the Belarusian society.
