Remember last month, Lukashenko was accusing the IMF to blackmail him on imposing an "Italian Style" strict lockdown that would have destroyed their economy. "History is very clear in this precedent: Corruption and/or violence would be no obstacle whatsoever to doing business with the West, were Lukashenko willing to be biddable and serve a NATO-backed Deep State agenda. Lukashenko’s coronavirus policy shows he is not, and so twenty-six years of being gently tolerated are over and it’s time for him to go." https://off-guardian.org/2020/08/16/belarus-in-the-firing-line-for-a-colour-revolution/
