Or what is more likely is that the message was written in English so it could be read wherever it (the picture) was printed - it is actually very common that protesters the world over will write their signs in English, as it is a global language and getting international coverage for your cause is important.

But no, lets just assume he is a CIA "plant" and it's all staged rather than apply any common sense....

Secondly sure most liklely speak some English. Why in a protest in there OWN country surely you would use there OWN language?


For the camera's....

Protest in Burma


Protest in Japan


Protest in Thailand


As you can see, all nations that do not even remotely use the same alphabet or language as the UK, but like to have signs written in English...

No that logic I get.

It makes sense for the natives there to do that as you said.

I was just adressing the point of expats protesting.

Your just being obtuse now.

You know exactly what I mean.

Not all expats would be protesting (if there are any expats protesting anyway) and Im not calling there motives suspicious even if I do think they are insane to willingly live in Europes worst dictatorship.


Im only questioning those expats (if they even are and not natives trying to get our attention ) who are protesting.


By the way if this is want they want then I fully support then. Hope they send Russia packing.


Not sure why your bringing Ukraine up to me, i have already stated on another thread I think what Russia did there was terrible.

I was saying Belarus has seen what happened in Ukraine, and don't want them to be next after telling Russia no base.

This is a problem in all the former Soviet Republics right now. After years of being treated like crap by Russia, the Ukraine in invasion was the final nail in coffin. It showed them that Russia does not see them as sovereign nations. And they are not happy. Most of them are trying keep the populations hate of Russia down while the figure out how to break from Russia without getting invaded. These are the people that would love to see Russia get drug into a conflict with NATO so that they could turn on Russia and get out without facing Russian military retaliation. Since that is unlikely it will interesting to see how they manage this. You have to wonder how long Russia can maintain this downward spiral. At some point all these problem will have to dealt with.

"The presidents discussed various aspects of that topic. The constructive discussion will go on," Peskov said, adding that Putin and Lukashenko would soon meet in Kazakhstan, at the summits of the CIS and the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on October 15-16.

"They will have an excellent opportunity to discuss these issues on the sidelines," Peskov said.

Thats an.... interestingly....worded article on the topic. "Convincingly"?

Something tells me he will threaten Lukashenko behind closed doors to agree to the airbase. Or Belarus will find the Russian segment of their population is all of a sudden being discriminated against.
