Once again Belarus and Russia have been waging a milk war. From March 6 on, Belarus will be banned from delivering its dairy products to Russia.
According to Alyaksandr Lukashenka, the limitations are caused with the intention to sell milk powder brought to Russia from ‘New Zealand or somewhere else’. Notably, it is the State Security Committee (KGB) that furnished the Belarusian leader with the information.
“The Union State laws prohibit spying on each other, but apparently, it is flourishing and partners in the ‘brotherly integration’ do hold one another in distrust,” Belarusian political commentator Alyaksandr Klaskouski said in Belsat TV program Hot Commentary.
In his opinion, Lukashenka skillfully exploited the Belarusian dairy issue as an attention-grabbing stunt.
