August 25, 2020 "Information
Clearing House" - Longstanding US plans
earmarked Belarus for regime change, wanting
pro-Western puppet rule in another nation bordering
There’s nothing spontaneous about mass protests
that erupt in nations the US wants transformed into
They’re most likely to occur in the run-up to
and/or after elections in which a pro-Western US
chosen candidate is unlikely or unable to defeat an
incumbent dark forces in Washington want toppled.
On August 9, longtime Belarusian President
Alexander Lukashenko defeated opposition challenger
Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya in an election he was
expected to win.
His inflated eight-to-one majority triumph
created an opportunity for prearranged protesters to
cry foul in Minsk streets.
Historian, former UK envoy, human rights activist
Craig Murray believes Lukashenko was reelected
handily “with over 60% of the vote.”
Tsikhanouskaya’s claim that she triumphed by over
a 60% majority amounted to reading lines scripted by
her US handlers.
She lost. He won, but likely by much less than an 80% majority.
Orchestrated daily protests have been ongoing
since the August 9 presidential election, most
likely to continue ahead.
US regime change plots don’t quit until achieving
success or they’re foiled.
Russia is highly unlikely to allow another US
client state to emerge on its border without acting
to prevent it.
On Sunday, Sergey Lavrov explained that
Washington seeks to gain control over Belarus,
In cahoots with its NATO partners, the Trump
regime is “trying to redraw Belarus according to
(its) own design.”
“(W)e will not be against any decision that the
Belarusian leadership will make regarding dialogue
with its population.”
“When the West says that only mediation with the
participation of Western countries will be
effective, everyone remembers how it was in Ukraine,
where Western mediation turned into a complete
(unwillingness of the Obama regime) to negotiate.”
Moscow supports Lukashenko’s proposal for
dialogue with opposition elements on constitutional
Belarusians need no external interference in
their internal affairs, what’s been going on for the
past two weeks.
Lukashenko accused the US-led West of attempting
to destabilize the country, including by deploying
NATO forces close to its borders.
Foreign dark forces want him removed him from
office, he stressed.
Tikhanovskaya’s call for Lukashenko “to leave”
came ahead of a planned meeting with Trump regime
Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun in

She’s putty in the hands of US dark forces using
her to further their interests, manipulating her
moves and remarks.
Belarus and Russia are Collective Security Treaty
Organization (CSTO) member states, along with
Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and
It calls for member states to abstain from use of
force, at the same time pledging military support in
case a CSTO nation is invaded by foreign elements.
On Sunday, Belarusian Foreign Ministry Spokesman
Anatoly Glaz said his country rejects what he called
“threadbare advice” from Ukraine’s pro-Western
puppet regime, adding:
Kiev has “a lot of more important everyday
problems to address inside the country for years to
come rather than giving advice to the neighbor” it
doesn’t want or accept.
Hostile US actions destabilized Belarus. EU
foreign policy chief Josep Borrell opposes Trump
regime shenanigans to destroy the JCPOA while
supporting its unlawful color revolution attempt in
Belarus, tweeting on Sunday:
“Hugely impressed by massive and peaceful
demonstrations in Minsk and across #Belarus.”
“They show determination and courage of the
Belarusian people to seek democratic change (sic).”
There’s nothing “democratic” about trying to
replace an elected president with pro-Western puppet
Ignoring US-orchestrated violence, Pompeo said
the Trump regime “has been inspired by the display
of peaceful expression of the Belarusian people
seeking to determine their own future (sic)” — as
long as the nation’s ruling authorities subordinate
its sovereign rights to US interests.
Russia stands ready to help the Belarus stay free
from Western control.
Its actions will conform to the rule of law —
polar opposite how hegemon USA operates everywhere.
