What does this statement, as it suggests? On this issue meet Alexander Yarashuk, Chairman of the Belarusian Congress of Democratic Trade Unions, and Yuri Chausov, politician and member Sojm BPF.
Yarashuk: This clear signal the EU, the U.S., the democracies that the regime is willing to adjust their position in the political situation which he himself has created. This confirms what is usual cynical bargaining fate those people, who have already suffered and received sentences.
Chausov: In the early spring it was reported that the Belarusian leader is going to Kazakhstan, among analysts was suggested that Alexander G. is looking for a mediator, someone who could mediate in trade with Europe, which the Belarusian side is eager to get started on the subject of economic concessions, loans and investment in exchange for political concessions in the form of the release of political prisoners. The fact that this promise came during a visit to Kazakhstan, indicates that such an intention in Lukashenko's really there. We see that the prolonged sentencing Mr. Statkevich. And Lukashenko in his characteristic rough shape, but speaks directly about the pardon. This is a clear message to the West — not to impose sanctions, and sit down with me to the table, and I'm all for you to let go of political prisoners, some of your assignment.
