I sent this letter to the Chairman of the State Duma of Russian Federation:
Mr. Chairman of the State Duma!
Having examined the declaration of the State Duma on the Russian-Belarusian relations, I would like to make some observations about the position of the deputies from the United Russia party, who rushed to support the unfounded and insulting accusations of Belorussian president by Mr. Medvedev.
Russia and Belarus are the parts of a unified state, which existed naturally until cynical political adventurers had crawled onto political arena. However, our reunification is only a matter of time.
Russia has never been and will never be a Jewish shtetl settlement. Our fathers had shed their blood for a united and indivisible Russia. Therefore, all the “elected-by-people” must know that the coup d’Etat of 1991, which dismembered Russia to pieces, will never make the Russian nation to put up with this vileness, done behind our backs. Every one of the state criminals will pay for it by name – alive or dead.
Last week we had the opportunity to watch the press conference by Alexander Lukashenko. His position was sincere, fair, and absolutely clear. It was in no way anti-Russian, as you and Medvedev are trying to present it. Medvedev and Putin – this is not Russia!
Alexander Lukashenko is seen in Russia a model statesman, the best representative of the entire nation. It is impossible to say anything like this about any one of the UR deputies of the State Duma, still less such epithets can be applied to Dmitry Medvedev, who has not done anything positive for Russia. Medvedev dedicated all this year to the destruction of the country’s defense, education, and health care systems. He has just given the Arctic shelf to Norway. Russian President is absolutely helpless in matters of economy, instead, he is concerned with supplying the Chinese economy with cheap energy resources.
Mr. Medvedev has no right to blame Alexander Lukashenko for not recognizing yet the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Medvedev himself has recognized their independence only under our pressure, having promised to Sarkozy not to do anything like that.
The support by Mr. Medvedev of the pro-US rebels in Kyrgyzstan was criminal in relation to the interests of Russia and has gone beyond human decency. Medvedev’s moves during the events in Kyrgyzstan were committed in violation of the rules, which he was obliged to adhere to. Medvedev’s behavior dishonors all the citizens of Russia – by the lack of principle, by personal dishonesty, by disgusting criminal motivations.
Mr. Medvedev is not able to listen to constructive criticism, to the opinion of the citizens of the country, he considers it possible to declare and undertake anything on behalf of Russia.
Surprisingly, only the Duma does not notice that the Government and the President of the Russian Federation enforce strict anti-Russian course. Dubious “successes” of our Government, a two-year stay of the entire country in a state of economic collapse, the lack of clear prospects for the future – all this causes protests and social tensions in all the strata of the society. Most Russian citizens feel a sense of humiliation because of worthlessness of the leadership personalized by Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin, because of their inappropriate behavior in the international arena, because of their cynical betrayal of Russian interests.
Most of the MP’s of present convocation have no right to make any statements on behalf of Russia, out of moral considerations. Suffice it to look at the list of the adopted laws to make sure that the majority of the deputies, who illegitimately penetrated Duma via the UR party lisis are blatant traitors.
It is time for the MPs to find out what percentage of the population actually trusts the State Duma of this convocation, and the Government. It is time to face the truth. No one in Russia trusts you, everyone considers you the odd people in government who came to power for feeding yourselves. You have not done anything for the Motherland, you have only created additional difficulties and obstructions, which will have to be bulldozed in the future. Virtually every bill passed by the Duma can be considered applying art. 275 of the Criminal Code (treason). Don’t think you will shirk responsibility.
I do not let the deputies, eating by parties and by the entire Duma on the account of budget who did nothing for the country in current critical situation, to speak on my behalf, especially on behalf of Russia! You pass the laws that destroy the last remnants of Social Security, blindly supporting all the treacherous actions of the president and the government, forcing me and the majority of my countrymen, to writhe in pain and humiliation. Then dare you not speak on our behalf!
In connection with the foregoing I require:
1. To immediately ratify the Treaty establishing the Union State of Belarus and Russia in the wording proposed by the Belarusian side.
2. Not to ratify the agreement on the Medvedev’s gift of Arctic Shelf to Norway.
3. To stop immediately treasonable negotiations on Russia’s entry to the WTO.
