The united Europe has again taken the path of expansion to the East, political analyst Aleksei Dzermant told the Respublika daily, BelTA informs.

“The speech of Aleksandr Lukashenko in the Brest Fortress on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War was unusual, frank, emotional and very understandable for Belarusians. The president spoke about the most important things for all of us, the things we remember and cherish. These are memories and lessons that we learned from that war and that became relevant again as almost the entire West turned on us. The Belarusian leader's address to Western politicians and peoples was no arrogant lecturing or making a show of bravery for no good reason. He turned to them in order to bring them to their senses and to draw quite obvious parallels between what happened 80 years ago and what is happening now. The united Europe, in fact, has again taken the path of expansion to the East,” the expert said.

According to Aleksei Dzermant, the Ukrainian tragedy has taught the West nothing, and they want the same thing to happen in Belarus.

“But they have not yet succeeded, and therefore they have doubled down on the sanctions pressure against us, economic war and information sabotage. How dare it? A small Belarus is challenging the entire Euro-Atlantic community! The country wants to live by its wits, have its own values without being lectured from the outside. This is what they cannot forgive. The comparison with the Nazi occupation is not accidental. During the Great Patriotic War it was terrible, bloody. Cunning strategists have changed the tactics and are fighting for the hearts and minds of our fellow citizens so that they themselves hand them everything on a silver platter,” the analyst said.

He noted that in his speech the president outlined very clearly the foundations of the ideology of our state.

“It is the protection of independence, human dignity against any manifestations of racism and superiority disguised as beautiful ideas of freedom and democracy. Now fascism and neo-Nazism are hiding under the slogans of the European choice, Western values, but once someone starts believing it, they are turned into a disenfranchised colony, a supplier of resources. This is what Belarus and its leader oppose. We are now on the front lines of the struggle defending not only ourselves, but also our allies in the east. We must prevail in this fight. For the future of humanity,” Aleksei Dzermant concluded.
