We understand pretty well the challenges that this country faces, but at the same time we know it very well that it is an absurd if we try to prove that Russia is more democratic than Belorussia. Unlike Russia Belorussia doesn't occupy a neighboring country. Carrying out the isolation policy - as it usually happens - is the direct attempt to cease sovereignty of Belorussia and to put the country under a complete control of today's government of Russia. It is unacceptable and counterproductive for Europe's long-term development. This is a very talented European nation and such a result will be harmful for the whole region.
