Human Trafic

One of the main conditions of participation of A. Lukashenko in summit “Eastern Partnership” in Riga is the most worrying and discussed question in Europe – the discharge of all political prisoners in Belarus. Nowadays many of them are already discharged. 2010 elections` former presidential candidate Nikolay (Mikola) Statkevich is still in prison. He refuses flatly to submit a petition for mercy, because doing that means that he admits his guilt, he says. The government takes repressive measures to influence him, e.g. transferring him to prison, interdiction of dates, psychological abuse and pressure (the president of Belarus does want to be hand in with unite Europe). However, the former presidential candidate is very steadfast and is not going to change his decision. It seems that Statkevich wants to be imprisoned until an expiration of a sentence, relying on an international support.

Another problem is the fact that Nikolay Statkevich is the only leader which is recognized by the separate country`s opposition. He is in prison – that means he is the national hero. If he will be released, the situation can drastically change and be very favorable for the opposition. In this case, he can be supported by the “street”, and a real leader can appear. The government is sure that there is no point in realizing him before the elections.

On the other hand, the visit of A. Lukashenko to Riga, while Statkevich is in prison, means that the EU does not keep its promises and to brings its human rights, democratic initiatives and declared values into discredit. If the president visits the summit, having fulfilled the requirements of Europe (to get the petition for mercy), how will Brussels look? Brussels - which shuts its eyes to the methods and tools used by Lukashenko, who shows he is re-educated for the European integration. However Europe has more than once given up its proclaimed values and principles for the sake of its political benefit.

It is clear that a violent geopolitical struggle takes place nowadays between Russia and Western counties, so that Lukashenko is in great value. All weapons are used against Moscow. The participation of Lukashenko, the leader of the Russian`s union state, will not do damage, but will “sting” aloud. And the democracy in Belarus will really suffer. Western countries, receiving Lukashenko in Riga, pay settle accounts with Statkevich. Statkevich is consumable material for Europe.

Will Lukashenko go to the summit? On the one hand, he dreams to show Europe to his son Nikolay. On the other hand, he does not want to anger Russia, because he must secure his financial rear. Most likely Aleksandr Lukashenko will stay in Minsk with his son, meanwhile the minister for foreign affairs Vladimir Makey, who has done too much to turn Lukashenko into a European politician, will represent the country on the summit. Nikolay Statkevich will still be in prison, absolutely forgotten by western countries…
