We're From the Kremlin. And We're Here to Help

Belarus accepts financial help from Russia:

President Alexander Lukashenko said Monday that he has secured Russian President Vladimir Putin's promise to help shore up the Belarusian economy, which has suffered from recession in Russia, its main export market.

Duck and cover, Belarussians. You're a slight name change from being a Russian province (again). Don't let the Russians buy your country. Their collection agency is exceptionally well armed.

Both NATO and Ukraine have a lot of interest in keeping Belarus out of Russia's firm grip in a new Anschluss.
