RADIOACTIVE REFUGE: Offering Asylum in Chernobyl's No Man's Land (Spiegel)

October 14, 2005

The dictator of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, is making a cynical offer to refugee asylum seekers. You can stay here, but only if you live in the No Man's Land created by the Chernobyl disaster.

According to the wishes of the Belarussian dictator Alexander Lukashenko, more than 200,000 refugees will soon be removed from cities like Minsk, Brest and Grodno. Their new home will be a place in which not even the poorest Belarussians would want to live.

Radiation scientists are appalled by Lukashenko's latest deal. "From a medical point of view this policy is insane," said Sebastian Pflugbeil, president of the German Society for Radiation Protection.

Afghans, Pakistanis and Vietnamese -- in Lukashenko's eyes all nuclear-weapon armed criminals -- should go to the West. In the dictator's eyes this would be a possible revenge for the EU's refusal to nurture political relations with him.

He is such a nice guy, Lukashenko. This is his way of solving the "refugee problem" once and for all. Refugees might not want to go to Belarus now.

Why are refugees going to Belarus anyway?
It can't be much better there than where they came from.

Some may flame me for this but I don't really have a problem with his actions.
Europe needs to tighten it's borders and stop accepting refugees from all over the world.
If they don't, the native Europeans will eventually become minorities in their own countries.

Actually Europe did tightened their borders. The refugeesĀ“ destination was originally EU. They used Belarus as transit and found the borders into EU closed. Then they were stuck in Belarus...

Perhaps V. Lukashencko want's to see what if anything they might morph into. Who knows with all that radiation around, they may be able to come up with a new kind of light source. On a more humane level, I feel sorry for those who have no means to reject the offer the old, infirm and young that have phy. disabilities. It would most certainaly be a lethal death camp wore than those in WWII. Their deaths would be slow and terrible. I would care not to see it happen.
