Expert: In His Relations with Russia Lukashenka Staked Everything

The Interview with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili shown Thursday night on the First Channel of the Belarusian television will have negative consequences for Lukashenka, as the political commentator Raman Yakauleusky said in the interview with the news portal www.UDF.BY.
"This interview should not be surprising in light of the relations of Lukashenka and the Kremlin", - said Yakauleusky. He reminded that the conversation of the Belarusian journalist with the Georgian leader was held after a mysterious meeting of the two presidents in the Crimea. "Even my Georgian colleagues do not know exactly where this meeting took place, what issues were raised at it, and what decisions were taken", said the commentator to the news portal www.UDF.BY.
He said that improved relations between the two leaders could be linked with the hope that Tbilisi will promote dialogue between Minsk and Washington. However, in his opinion, these expectations are wrong:
"When Barack Obama became the US President, the attitude of the U.S. administration to the President of Georgia changed substantially. I cannot say that it deteriorated, but the extent of support is not the same."
The interview with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili shown Thursday night on the First Channel of Belarusian television may indicate that "in his relations with Russia, Lukashenko staked everything", and therefore he may expect "negative consequences".
Raman Yakauleusky is sure that the film "Godfather" is "the answer of the Kremlin" to the behaviour of Lukashenko, on his friendship with Saakashvili.
