MINSK, 7 July (BelTA) - Whether it is Boris Johnson in power or someone else nothing will change in the British policy, Andrei Savinykh, Chairman of the Standing Committee on International Affairs of the House of Representatives of Belarus, said on the air of the First National Channel of the Belarusian Radio while commenting on the news about Boris Johnson's resignation, BelTA has learned.
"We pay attention to the prime minister, the government, political parties, ministers in general. But this is only an external circuit of governance, which does not make serious decisions that affect the future of that country. They follow the instructions of the inner core. These are primarily the financial, corporate and aristocratic elites who really make decisions in which direction the country goes. These decisions are absolutely non-public. These are independent decisions that do not take into account public opinions. Then they are conveyed in the form of instructions to the Cabinet of Ministers, to ministers, even to political parties through the instruments of financing, through a lot of other mechanisms that have been perfected in these countries over the past few centuries," Andrei Savinykh said.
The change of the prime minister will not change the situation dramatically, the MP is sure. "Whether it is Mr Johnson who is Prime Minister or he is replaced by someone else, nothing will change whatsoever. The UK will continue the policy formulated by these inner centers of coordination and governance," he added.
