brad johnson it is august the 5th of
00:02
2020
00:04
and there are continual developments
00:06
actually
00:07
on so many fronts um but this one’s on
00:10
belarus what did you want to tell us
00:12
about what’s taking place there
00:14
belarus very interesting place we’ve
00:16
been talking about it for a while
00:17
belarus has
00:18
always been very closely linked to
00:20
russia and basically
00:21
uh it it’s a dictatorship there and then
00:24
the guy in charge runs with an iron fist
00:26
and
00:26
all that but he was always looking for
00:28
kind of a a reassociation back to kind
00:31
of reinvent the
00:33
uh the ussr sort of thing so
00:36
long time relationship with russia
00:37
however now
00:39
that seems to be breaking up one of the
00:41
some of the stuff we’ve reported
00:42
previously is there was some competition
00:44
for the to occupy those bases in
00:48
belarus that are currently occupied by
00:50
the russians
00:51
and that the chinese are trying hard to
00:53
get in there
00:54
now this is consistent across the board
00:56
with with all this i believe all of this
00:58
to be
00:59
straight up true now part of what’s
01:02
happened just recently
01:04
and we mentioned a little bit of this
01:06
earlier but there’s a group called the
01:07
wagner group now wagner group
01:09
is essentially like blackwater was
01:12
blackwater used to do a lot of us
01:13
government contracting
01:15
and a lot of these people were armed and
01:17
would provide
01:18
physical security now there was a shoot
01:20
them up and some people got killed and
01:22
so blackwater kind of got into a lot of
01:24
trouble and
01:24
have changed their name and everybody at
01:26
the top i think is gone and it’s new
01:28
new management but wagner group is
01:30
similar in that sense they’re directly
01:32
tied to the kremlin
01:33
they have you know intelligence people
01:35
retired uh you know military guys go
01:37
into this
01:39
but they’re essentially a mercenary
01:41
group
01:42
tied close to russia and there was a
01:45
group maybe
01:46
a week ago now that got arrested
01:49
and they were doing some stuff in
01:50
belarus if they weren’t exactly able to
01:52
figure
01:53
out but they were worried that they were
01:55
making uh
01:56
you know inroads with with russian with
02:00
pro-moscow
02:01
russians that weren’t necessarily
02:03
supporting belarus
02:05
even though belarus has traditionally
02:06
been very pro-russia
02:08
so now it appears that there has been an
02:11
attempt
02:12
by putin to essentially take over
02:15
politically uh belarus and kind of
02:18
try to absorb it that way without having
02:20
to deal with the dictator who’s in
02:22
charge there
02:23
who doesn’t want to be under under the
02:25
thumb of putin
02:26
he wants a close association but not to
02:28
be controlled
02:29
now something happened that’s
02:31
interesting the initial group that was
02:33
arrested was so small
02:35
they weren’t sure really what they could
02:36
be up to but apparently that was a
02:38
leadership
02:39
cadre and there’s another another group
02:41
of 170 mercenaries from this
02:44
wagner group who are loose in belarus
02:46
now that starts to be
02:48
enough in a small country of belarus
02:51
that if they joined up with also
02:53
factions that are existing there that
02:55
this could be the
02:56
the root of an actual armed uprising so
03:00
that’s kind of what’s going on there
03:01
belarus has closed the border with
03:03
russia and
03:04
greatly limited down uh limited who can
03:07
come and go
03:08
and and and who gets through and all
03:09
those things so there is still some
03:11
things going back and forth but
03:13
far more limited now and belarus is very
03:16
suspicious of who’s trying to go through
03:17
there
03:18
because of this this group of 170 people
03:21
from
03:21
wagner group like i said those then you
03:23
start to get in
03:24
plus the people who are arrested you’re
03:25
looking at around 200
03:27
and uh you know trained mercenaries that
03:29
are then backed by local militias sorts
03:31
of guys
03:32
could start to get to be fairly
03:34
dangerous fairly quick so that’s kind of
03:36
a quick look at what’s going on belarus
03:38
china is involved as i said in the
03:40
background of all of this trying to
03:41
negotiate something to get control of
03:43
those spaces
03:44
for themselves so it’s an interesting
03:46
thing where you’re seeing
03:47
china and russia face off russia views
03:50
this as their backyard
03:52
so they’re not going to be happy about
03:53
any of this which is why
03:55
this wagner group being involved in
03:57
there actually has a lot of credibility
03:59
to me
04:00
because that would be the way to do it
04:02
they don’t want to send
04:03
russian troops in but they can send the
04:05
wagner group troops in there
04:07
who can accomplish all of the same th
04:09
same things but
04:10
allow a certain level of plausible
04:12
deniability
04:14
for russia trying to take political
04:15
control in belarus so
04:17
this is something that’s again it’s a
04:18
flashpoint this is not something i
04:20
expect to go into
04:22
full-blown war any revolution there
04:23
would be relatively small
04:25
but i do believe that this is a thing
04:27
that putin is not going to allow himself
04:29
to lose
04:30
and he doesn’t like that sort of thing
04:32
and he views it as his backyard so he’s
04:34
going to be
04:35
far more willing to throw a lot of
04:37
resources at this and waste
04:39
time and money and people and all of
04:40
that to make sure that this comes out
04:42
the way it wants so
04:43
this is kind of watching wait but i’m
04:45
i’m predicting pretty strongly that what
04:46
we’re going to see is a
04:48
you know a win in the scheme of things
04:50
for putin as this plays out but
04:52
uh there is there is some area for for
04:55
conflict with china over this as well
04:57
well we saw what he’s willing to do in
04:59
crimea so
05:00
it’s pretty easy to imagine what he’d be
05:02
willing to do in belarus
05:04
thank you very much for that all right
05:06
thank you
05:33
you
