Thank heavens for a failure in further European monetary union… August 30, 2005Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
This must be the only thing I can half-agree with Lukashenka on… Mind you, surely monetary union with Russia was at least half his idea to start with. Anyway, the fact that this project has been put off again only makes me all the more positive that it might never happen at all. Surely it would be the kiss of death to Belarus’s maintained independence. (And, honestly, would it really be so hard for the BBC Russian service to write Беларусь and not Белоруссия?)
