We the people are deceived appreciating against Lukashenko and Putin, deceived, evaluating the relationship between the oligarchs.
Here, for example, take two of some of the oligarchs. They can part their interests to be friends, at the same time, part of their interests to fight in their interests to ignore each other, sometimes to tell each other all sorts of nasty things, and sometimes it is nice to have fun together at a birthday party some third oligarch. And this can co-exist for decades.
Observers usually reject this ambiguity – they are either one or the other, and come to terms with the hybrid idea that you can “here” to fight, and at the same time “here” – friends, people can’t. Hence a desire for black-and-white assessment of the situation between Lukashenko and Putin. And there is no black and white. The fact that they now seem to fight, does not negate the fact that they’re part of their interests to cooperate, in terms of their interests, ignoring each other, and us here, as their society, considered simply as a resource.
So do not put them on their ideas about life. It is a logical fallacy to support or not to support Lukashenko in the confrontation with Russia. The confrontation they have in the field of interests, and they are in this part may agree without you at any time. You can, of course, not agree. But it is in any case very far from the standard non-oligarchic policies with the interests of societies and States.
