Kremlin: Russia-Belarus Relations “Deadlocked”

Natalia Timakova, spokesperson for Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, stated that Russia-Belarus relations “are deadlocked and will not be the same.” Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko and Russian President Dmitri Medvedev are apparently conducting propaganda campaigns against one another. Most recently Lukashenko has criticized Medvedev’s decision to dismiss Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, while Medvedev has accused Lukashenko of breaching his promise to recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia (Russia-sponsored breakaway provinces of Georgia).
