"And a variety of oppression tools, even the mechanism of so-called soft power could be used here ", the Putin said.
But how safe is this "protection" for Belarus and its citizens? Retired KGB colonel Valery Kostka is sure - the protection of Putin's "integration project" by the FSB in Belarus will, above all, hit the national conscious Belarusians.
