Expert: Belarus will become a country of widows and orphans

"The labor force will be sucked out through the three times difference in salaries. Belarusians themselves begin to leave for Russia. Belarus will become a country of widows and children", Russian political analyst Andrei Suzdaltsev believes.

According to the expert, the dream of Lukashenko is as follows: "Russia is responsible for the economy and for politics - it's he". Therefore, the Belarusian leader "may be ready to introduce the Russian ruble, just if Russia fully upkeeps Belarus!"

"And he continues to promote this form", Andrei Suzdaltsev said in an interview with "Nasha Niva".

According to him, for Russia the creation of a regional currency is also beneficial, and the Kremlin can go for "serious expenses" to implement these plans.

"But we should understand, that monetary union should come last, before this an economic union, common market must be created, the free movement of goods, capital and labor should be established. But if all this is done, Belarus will be quite different.

However, Russia can do nothing, and then the fate of Transnistria waits for Belarus. And it is also a realistic option. The labor force will be sucked out through the three times difference in salaries. Belarusians themselves begin to leave for Russia. Belarus will become a country of widows and children"
, he concluded.
