These days, when the Fake News Media drones on endlessly about some foreign leader being “the Last Dictator” or something, you know there is a hidden motive. Take Belarus, for instance.
Belarus, formerly White Russia in the Soviet Union, is led by Aleksandr Lukashenko and has been since its independence. No doubt he is less susceptible to “democratic” persuasion than he should be, but he seems to be more in tune with reality than some in the West.
In the never ending saga of Covid-19, Belarus seems to have adopted the same policies as did Sweden, namely, not locking up its citizens and destroying its economy, but attempting to live and behave reasonably.
Apparently, Belarus was offered nearly $1 billion by the World Bank at the beginning of the corona-mania, but only on condition that it adopt the lockdown policies of Italy and Spain and other countries.
According to Belta (the Belarusian news agency),
According to the president, the World Bank has showed interest in Belarus’ coronavirus response practices. “It is ready to fund us ten times more than it offered initially as a token of commendation for our efficient fight against this virus. The World Bank has even asked the Healthcare Ministry to share the experience. Meanwhile, the IMF continues to demand from us quarantine measures, isolation, a curfew. This is nonsense. We will not dance to anyone’s tune,” said the president.
And what of Belarus’ record in coronadoom? According to the Johns Hopkins website, Belarus (population 9.5 million) has recorded 553 deaths from Covid-19 as of July 30th. With no lockdown. With no economy shutdown.
Compare that with Italy, say, with a population about 60 million and over 35 000 deaths and a crippling lockdown, which has a per capita rate ten times higher than Belarus.
No wonder the globalist money bags hate Lukashenko; he won’t knuckle under to their extortion racket.
