Belarus' Lukashenko driving on; familiar pattern

Quote:
On Thursday, the increasingly beleaguered Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko announced that troops would be put on high alert as he closed borders with Lithuania and Poland.

“We are compelled to withdraw our troops from the streets, have half our army on guard and close our state border with the West, first of all with Lithuania and Poland,” said Lukashenko. “To our greatest regret, we are compelled to strengthen our border with brotherly Ukraine.”

“I don’t want my country to be at war. Moreover, I don’t want Belarus, Poland [and] Lithuania to turn into a theatre of military operations where [sic] our issues will not be resolved,” he added.

“Therefore, today […] I want to appeal to the peoples of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine — stop your crazy politicians, don’t let war break out!”
Just got back from chasing smallies on the river and found this SOFREP article in the ol' inbox. In the midst of RBGPanidemicLivesMatter wasn't sure who else might be tracking this. Rest of the article at the jump linked above.

Radio Free Europe also covering the detaining of women protesters. (They don't seem to have burned any local auto parts stores to the ground so, 'protesters'.)
