There are upcoming elections in Belarus on 9 August. 

Lukashenko seeks to continue ruling. 

Do you think this is good or bad?

Well he must be worried enough to have 32 mercenaries from Wagner Group arrested.

Law enforcement sources said they had received information about the arrival on Belarusian territory of 200 fighters "to destabilise the situation during the election campaign".

Belta, a state news agency, said the men were from Wagner Group, a private military company notorious for it's role in war zones where the Russian Government can deny official involvement, like Eastern Ukraine, Syria and Libya

Fair play to the guy.. seems ok to me.. If I was the President of any country I would ALSO fix it so I stayed in power , if that included a few assassinations so be it.. I wouldn't really fancy giving my thrown up to anyone would you?  :laugh:

When I get my own island there will be NO elections.. like my rule or clear off.. :ROFL:
I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!

Many presidential candidates were arrested for crimes. They were about to take the kids away from one candidate because there were stories of abuse so the candidate with his family fled Belarus. Lukashenko is just making sure only the most decent people are available to run for president.

Not only did those guys have propaganda material on them, they had condoms. Clear sign they were going to "screw" Belarussians.

Come to find out, the Russian mercenaries confessed to wanting to screw Latin American girls. That explains the condoms they were carrying. What about the propaganda material? Was it in Russian or Espanol?
