Liebe Grüße aus #Minsk/ Belarus!
Ich dachte mir, ich spar mir das Trauerspiel am Reichstag heute und gönn mir lieber ein paar Tage Urlaub in der letzten Oldschool-#Diktatur Europas. So geht social distancing auf Weißrussisch. Cheers! 🍺

2/ Bars, Clubs, Restaurants, Geschäfte, Museen, Theater, Kino, Sportstätten, Sauna - alles ist offen. Tagsüber sieht man zwar durchaus Masken in Innenräumen (geschätzt 50/50) ABER ES IST FREIWILLIG!!! Nachts wird gefeiert wie in Berlin noch vor etwas mehr als einem Jahr...
3/ Bar Maslow. In Minsk geht sogar am Dienstag was. Ich will nichts schönreden, es ist eine Diktatur. Aber Tatsache ist, dass in dieser "echten Diktatur" aktuell mehr bürgerliche Freiheitsrechte bestehen als bei uns. Keine Pointe.

A new proposal for peace in Eastern Ukraine has been overshadowed by renewed bloodshed btw the Ukrainian army + Russia-backed separatists. Here is a shamelessly long twitter thread:
France and Germany have apparently been working on a new approach to a settlement since November 2020, when it became clear that the warring sides had run out of reasonable proposals to offer.
“Clusters” propose a sequence of actions sides must do to implement the “Minsk-2” agreements. After agreeing on them in the Normandy Four they are passed to the Trilateral Contact Group, where the OSCE moderates negotiations of Ukraine🇺🇦, Russia🇷🇺 with participation of “LDPR”.

Following his participation in an unofficial event commemorating an event in Belarus for Polish resistance groups who fought Soviet authorities,
the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommended that Polish consul in Brest Jerzy Timofiejuk leave the country. “Poland will immediately and appropriately, using the rule of reciprocity,
respond to Belarus’s unjustified decision to declare Polish consul Jerzy Timofiejuk a persona non-grata,” stated Deputy Foreign Minister Marcin Przydacz.

#Belarus #Minsk #Raid

In several cities in Belarus, security forces raided journalists 'and human rights activists' private rooms. According to Viasna-96, 25 members of the independent Belarusian journalists' association BAJ and the human rights organization Viasna-96
were affected. Accordingly, the security forces confiscated smartphones, among other things. State investigators told Telegram that the aim was to determine how the protests against President Alexander Lukashenko had been financed.
The authoritarian leadership repeatedly claims that the demonstrations are funded from abroad. Since August there had been repeated mass protests against Lukashenko. Since then, more than 30,000 demonstrators have been arrested, dead and injured.

Unpopular THREAD. Peaceful protests are for democracies. In authoritarian countries like #Russia & #Belarus peaceful protests don’t work.

You need a specific location and you need to be ready to use force.
The main accomplishment of regimes in #Russia & #Belarus is that they were successful in demonizing Maidan. Even those who hate #Putin & #Lukashenko are scared of being associated with Maidan and rush to reassure their abusers that they will protest peacefully.
Yet, a peaceful protest is good in a country where public opinion & perception matters. In democracies, even a small protest can sway public opinion for or against a politician during the next election. In authoritarian states, public opinion is useless - there’s no elections.

In #Belarus today the usual Sunday protests, but things are sinking to a new low.

Many people have come to a provincial neighbourhood of #Minsk to pay tribute to, protest against, the brutal murder of Roman Bondarenko by police
The regime turns the memorial site into a war zone

Meanwhile, nearby on Pushkinskaya in central #Minsk, another attack on protesters. One can hear the screams, the crack of the batons, and shots of some description

#Belarus Happening right now across the country. Workers began protesting and striking. At least dozens of workers at various departments of #Minsk Tractor Plant are outside or marching inside the plant urging others to join. The plant's administration doesn't let them go

#Belarus #Minsk #Coronavirus

This man knows how to fight corona! As early as March, the Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko recommended vodka, sauna and tractor against the virus. However, these measures apparently did not bring much:
Although, according to official information, "only" 949 people died from the virus, the death rate soared in the first half of the year - for whatever reason.
But now the dictator is presenting a new miracle cure: "Cheese is a good cure for Covid," Lukashenko told journalists during a working visit to the Slutsk region. The video of it was published by Lukashenko's press service on Telegram.

Wie schön sich Frau Katrin Göring-Eckert und Annalena 'Bärchen' @ABaerbock jetzt über d Proteste in #Minsk äußern und den Mut loben, gegen Unterdrückung und #Totalitarismus aufzustehen! Seit 26 Jahren stört sich der Westen in keiner Form am letzten Diktator Europas und machte /2
bisher gute Geschäfte mit ihm.

Erst jetzt, als #Weißrussland sich gegen die Teilnahme an der Pharma-Korruption (genannt #Covid19 #Pandemie) entschieden hatte, fällt den @GrueneBundestag auf einmal auf, dass #Lukaschenko doch ein ganz böser böser #Diktator ist. Parallelen zu /3

#Belarus #Minsk #hackers #Police

In Belarus, unknown hackers released the personal data of 1,000 police officers in retaliation for crackdown on demonstrators. "As the arrests continue, we will continue to release massive amounts of data,"
said a Telegram statement broadcast by opposition broadcaster Nexta Live. "Even under a balaclava, nobody will remain anonymous."
The government announced that it would hold those responsible to account. New protests against President Alexander Lukashenko, who has ruled the former Soviet republic for 26 years, are planned for Sunday.
