Worst case of suicide the police ever saw.

Da, is terrible accident. His family also clumsy. Very clumsy.

Hey, their activists get lynched the same as ours! Neat.

She's headed to Poland... Which borders Belarus. I think she'd be safer elsewhere.

I have little doubt that Russia is helping with these shenanigans.

It seems like there is a sizable expat population in Poland, so there is more of a support network. Also Poland is part of the EU so it might be a stepping-stone westward.

Lol -- no wonder that Belarussian athlete didn't refused to board the plane in Tokyo after being sent home over a social media post criticizing the national team officials.

Now this is where uncertainty of the intent of the statement comes in.

Is it sad that the regime would go after the family for political reasons, or is it sad that the athlete didn't go home to face the torture and maybe spare the family from the regime's wrath?

If they bombed all cities that ever disappeared an activist, we'd be living in Canada.

"We were warned repeatedly by local sources and our people in Belarus about possible provocations, going as far as kidnapping and assassination. Vitaly reacted to those warnings with stoicism and humour."

Now it's being claimed he was suicidal, okay Vladimir.

If depressed and suicidal, why not attack Vladimir Putin non stop? A certain death can incentivize and motivate otherwise disinterested people to make Vladimir Putin personally touch their underpants himself.

I cannot think of a more domineering way to die aside from baiting Vladimir Putin into yet another assassination. Suicide by Putin rallies others against Putin and incentivizes suicidal people to bother him more.

"Don't make a mess for the police or department of transportation to find, inspire the entire Russian intelligence apparatus to whip around focus on you."

That's the message that's being sent.
If Vladimir Putin is misspeaking perhaps he ought to try a different message aside from play entertaining games, win precisely what you want.

The Americans would never do such a thing as kidnap and murder an agent out for a run....

An agent, really?  I mean, I get the trolling, but it's a stupid reach to call a rights activist in exile "an agent".

I sort of accidentally watched this fantastic documentary about the underground beginnings of this revolution over there centered on a troop of like community theater folks. So good. Look for this film.

As someone else said yesterday, she'd heading to Poland, which is a EU member state.

Over two dozen other countries to choose from, most of which are not (trying to become) fascist dictatorships. Once she's in Poland, she'll just need to hop on a train west or south to one of those other countries. As long as she doesn't go to Hungary, Lithuania*, or Estonia*, she should be fine.

/ * north is not really a great option, since Lithuania and Belarus are not on each others' Christmas card lists right now, and Estonia is currently on less-than-friendly terms with Russia
//dunno how Latvia's doing these days, but they seem to be doing well enough to not make too many international headlines

That's what I was thinking! Man if I successfully made it out of the country, I'd certainly put a few borders between me and any Putin loving Eastern European countries.

They love killing the good ones.
And usually after a few rounds of torture.

In fact, the suicided murdered guy is the one that helped her husband flee the country on Sunday.
Oh how very weird he's found dead the next day.
And who the f**k commits suicide in a public park, by hanging.
It was a warning. "We'll do this to you too, if you don't keep your ass in line" ~ you neighborhood KGB watch group

So yeah, murdered by KGB.

And this happened in Ukraine, which also borders Belarus.  Although Poland is an EU state, which should help a little.  But neither of them are friendly with Belarus (or their overlord Putin).
 
2021-08-03 2:47:54 PM  
Because, before yo commit suicide you just have to get that one last run in. Want to make sure you are in good shape.

That's very Putin-esque of you.  He loves what-abouting BLM whenever a US journalist asks him why he murders all his political opponents and arrests demonstrators.
