Save Belarus Farmers

Oh, this wonderful fatigue… Problems that can’t be resolved in a limited span of time annoy ad infinitum, don’t they?

Eastern Europeans from their big and small Russias are too elusive to grasp. They have alternating periods of colorful revolutions, flawless democracy and authoritarian rule.

I understand the EU attitude. There are too many national and local problems, with politicians stuck within election cycles, between voters’ pressure and populism, foreign policy being domestic policy-making.

There are very different parties assuming power and bureaucrats merrily-going-round due to rotation.

There is anaemic, drowsy strategic planning and no painstaking decisions as to the countries outside the EU.

As if EU doesn’t have any neighbours any more.

One of the recent episodes of South Park shows Americans supporting the fight of farmers in Belarus. Or was that about cosmonauts in Armenia?

Whatever. Politicians have to act anyway.

And if you have five minutes to spare, please join the fight. Ukrainian stamp collectors need you.

    Ms Rakhlei; if *you* have five minutes to spare, perhaps you would care to write a post that actually explains something, and doesn’t assume the reader knows everything you know.

    Perhaps Ashton should think about bracelets.. one for Gaza, one for Syria, one for Belarus.. Surely the different colours on her wrist would make these dossiers easier to follow.

    What Jon said. This article sounds like it could be really interesting, if I had a clue what it was talking about.
