IMF Made Loans to Belarus Conditional on a Lockdown. Lukashenko Turned Them Down

"We will not dance to anyone's tune" was the precise response

Additional conditions which do nto apply to the financial part are unacceptable for Belarus, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said when speaking about external lending during a meeting to discuss support measures for the real economic sector on the part of the banking system, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko asked the participants of the meeting how things were with the provision of foreign credit assistance to Belarus. “What are our partners’ requirements? It was announced that they can provide Belarus with $940 million in so-called rapid financing. How are things here?” the head of state inquired.

At the same time, he stressed that additional conditions which do not apply to the financial part are unacceptable for the country. “We hear the demands, for example, to model our coronavirus response on that of Italy. I do not want to see the Italian situation to repeat in Belarus. We have our own country and our own situation,” the president said.

According to the president, the World Bank has showed interest in Belarus’ coronavirus response practices. “It is ready to fund us ten times more than it offered initially as a token of commendation for our efficient fight against this virus. The World Bank has even asked the Healthcare Ministry to share the experience. Meanwhile, the IMF continues to demand from us quarantine measures, isolation, a curfew. This is nonsense. We will not dance to anyone’s tune,” said the president.

If any of those who commented had the slightest idea of what’s going on in Belarus, there would be no comments at all.

The elections on august 9th are very close, and people are tired of this communist ignorant dictator who rules the country since 1994, with murders, imprisonment, and iron fist, bringing the country down and down.

I believe that the IMF used some clearly unacceptable conditions so that they could give a positive answer to Lukashenko’s request of loan, without giving further funds to what seems to be more and more a dictator on the verge of collapse.

Maybe it requires a lockdown so that the country’s economy will be shattered and afterwards they will blackmail them when they are unable to pay

God,,, Why can’t we have leadership like that? I’ll take a dictator like that over what we call democracy in the West any day. Look what we have,,, Trump, Pence, Pelosi, Schiff, Rubio, Occasional Cortex and a bunch of disgusting wannabe tyrant governors and mayors.

And a electorate too stupid to recall/remove them.

You are the moron.
Elections were frauds, with opposition leaders arrested, ballots disappeared and reappeared, journalist intimidated or arrested, some even killed.
This time he’s doing the same shit, but people is sick and tired of the tyrant.

Therein lies the answer to how it is so many countries all at once complied to the same mandates and came up with the same (new) health regulations such as how to file death certificates, how to diagnose for this “new” disease, how to tests for this “new disease etc.

There are various trade agreements which nations are bound to and if they don’t comply with completely unrelated mandates, say for example going along with a fake pandemic for the benefit of Big Pharma (as decided by the WHO, aka the Big Pharma legislative branch) they are subject to various forms of economic blackmail.

And here we are.

It is a shame that Lukashenko is not a natural born American citizen.
We could use a vertebrate like him in the White House.

If you’re American be sure that with a dictator like the Cockroach you would not have free elections after the first term.

How would a dictator like Trump be an improvement, they both being flaming nationalists? We haven’t had free elections since the Republicans and the Democrats voted themselves guaranteed ballot access, long before I was born in 1954.

Why would the IMF require a virus lockdown to get their money???
One answer might be that it is proof of a hoax to do just that: lockdown citizens of countries to run a test of subservience or fear brought on by anything a government brings on to threaten their own countries…..sort of like Hitler did to the Reischtag (burned it down and blamed others) or 9/11 in NYC
which was done to force a war against Iraq. There are so many insidius ways that can be used to bring a citizenry down to the level of slavery – The books Brave New World and 1984 have some hints in them that could bring people to their senses! OR- Just look at what trump is doing on behalf of the Powers That Be (the evil Triad incl the Rothschild bunch)….The covid virus is being played as a ‘natural phenomenon’ which calls for self-isolation ` not a mentally healthy thing to do. IMF is part of the problem…
