I like this one.
There's a great deal of Russian money in Cyprus, still, of course., so Cyprus presumably doesn't want to fall out too badly with Russia. That might have something to do with it, too.The reason why Cyprus choose to do this is Erdogan's Turkey. Cyprus feels directly threatened by Erdogan, and that it's violating the sovereignty of Cyprus, but the EU does nothing against him. On the other hand according to Cyprus Belarus is not threatening EU members nor a member of the EU.
Cyprus' attitude towards Russia is unlikely to be monocausal, of course.And how many Western countries are laundering their money in Cyprus as well? It's not such an unlikely practice.
I am certain though if your own country is divided in a Turkish and Greek part since ages, and Turkey starts to act funny while not being really far away that security is by a far shot the main concern.
About 100,000 demonstrators marched in the Belarusian capital calling for the authoritarian president’s ouster, some wearing cardboard crowns to ridicule him, on Sunday as the protests that have rocked the country marked their 50th consecutive day.
Protests also took place in nine other cities, underlining the wide extent of dismay and anger with President Alexander Lukashenko who has stifled opposition and independent news media during 26 years in power.
When even official state TV for kids makes fun of you, your authority pretty much eroded.A children’s show on state television in Belarus has broadcast an apparent parody of President Lukashenko days after the dictator was sworn in for a sixth successive term.The Kalykhanka puppet show onwww.thetimes.co.uk
