Budgetary money is just wasted.
The failure of the Belarusian national team is not discussed. The dictator himself is silent.
Why does he do it? Charter97.org decided to ask the famous Belarusian film director Yury Khashchevatski about it:
- Frankly speaking, I am not surprised that Lukashenka is silent. I'm increasingly surprised with things he sometimes voices. As soon as he opens his mouth, he fiddles faddle.
On the other hand, it is a pity that Lukashenka is silent, because he said some nonsense that would give us food for laughter.
After all, what can he say? Nothing! He is silent because he understands that he shitted bricks. He knows that all his "hockey program" is fake. Money invested in ice palaces does not bring any joy and dividends. Now he is shocked.
- The major part of the Belarusian media also are silent about Lukashenka's hockey failure, and our readers complain that many websites censor comments on this topic.
-I think that now the most natural way for the Belarusian media is to quickly, as in North Korea, to show on TV that our hockey players became world champions. Let them show the picture when they dent the twine and say that they are "champions". And that's all It would be a success.
Of course, comments are censored. They will delete ones and substitute with others, more tolerant. I would like to underline that North Korea has become the World Cup Champion in this way. In general, so it can be done here. God knows what they really want!
People respond to the hockey failure. People write comments and we all understand what they are. You need just go outdoors and talk to ordinary men and they will explain you everything. And they write it in comments, in the same words.
In my opinion, one more accent is worth attention. Not all Lukashenka's failures are evident. Let's take, for example, the modernization of the woodworking industry. Only specialists and people in the sphere observe it. They know how much money was invested. Major part of people are not interested in it, it's a pity, because people's money was spent.
Failure with hockey is obvious. Many people see the absense of sense of things done. Fans, of course, are outraged. It is a pity that they are indignant at hockey, and it is necessary to be indignant at all Lukashenka's activity: social, political and economic.
