Boris Nemtsov: Lukashenka has swindled Putin once again


Lukashenka has deceived Putin, while those will be Russians to pay.

An opposition politician Boris Nemtsov writes about that on his Facebook account.

“Luka promised Putin not to let Polish apples and Dutch cheese through Belarus to Russia. But he has claimed that he will not have restrictions on imports to his country. What does this mean, when there are not customs control points between Russian and Belarus?”

Only one thing. We will soon be eating Belarusian apples, cheese, and someone will eat Belarusian jamon, see bass and oysters.

Naturally, it will need to be paid for repacking, changing stickers and additional logistical costs. The prices in Russian will grow. But the brotherly country will see new jobs, and new articles of food exports. Luka has swindles Putin once again. And these will be us to pay”, - Boris Nemtsov writes.

We would remind that at the end of last week the head of the government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev has approved the list of foreign products, which fall under sanctions.

“Russia introduces a complete ban on the shipments of beef, pork, fruit and vegetables, poultry, fish, cheese, milk and dairy products from the coutnries of the European Union, the United States of America, Australia, Canada and the Kingdom of Norway”, - he stated.

On Wednesday the Russian president Vladimir Putin signed a decree, forbidding to import the products from the countries, which had introduced sanctions against Russia due to the events in Ukraine. The decree provides for a year-long ban.
