    I'm happy I found out you treated that subject. I'm particularly worried at the moment, as members of the band Irdorath were arrested and put in jail there for a while now. The birthday party of the lead singer was raided. The reason? They played music at peaceful protests last year, what encouraged other people to join. It's getting more real when you know people directly affected by this. I hope you'll sell/you sold all these teddy bears.

    3:16 Roman Protasevich is a literal Nazi who wears Swastika t-shirts, appears in white supremacist magazines, and fought in the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion in Ukraine. Like usual, John Oliver is just doing information warfare on behalf of Western imperialism, helping the US and EU demonize and destabilize a country they have long targeted for regime change, so they can overthrow its independent government, private its industries and natural resources, impose neoliberal shock therapy, and incorporate Belarus into the NATO cartel.

    Sanctions have never once worked, not once. Why do we keep punishing the people we are supposed to be protecting. Instead we should be rewarding those who stand against the government. Make the incentive for those who enforce these regimes be greater to stand against than enforce. I'd you take something from someone if just pisses them off and makes them refuse to help you, people will always work if they are compensated with a fair or generous wage.

    President Lukashenko’s policies are becoming insane, but a little bit better than North Korea. But what is ideal state for him? A woman athlete had fled to Poland from Tokyo Olympic Games, a civil aviation was captured to arrest anti-Lukashenko journalists, over 80% of voting rate for him nevertheless many protesters were surrounding the capital city Minsk. I can’t believe that.

    Sad fact is nothing will be done. I use to always look at stupid revolution comments and be like what are you talking about. But no one can change this except the people and when forming groups is punished by jail and even death you can't really blame someone for backing down. They had a chance a year or two ago and didn't go through with it. America can't do anything because of Russia. All authoritian countries are doing the same now because it works, Russia, China, n korea

    They're coming after Alexander Lukashenko because: Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said the World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of “Covid Relief Aid.” In exchange for $940 million USD, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus: • imposed “extreme lockdown on his people” • force them to wear face masks • impose very strict curfews • impose a police state • crash the economy - Advertisement - Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko refused the offer and stated that he could not accept such an offer and would put his people above the needs of the IMF and World Bank. This fact can be verified using most search engines.
