Today Putin and Lukashenka spoke “in parallel”, competing with each other – while on Belarusian television Putin’s speeches (which is rather unusual) were given a fairly short period of time (and on some channels nothing was shown at all – “competition”).
Speaking purely from the point of view of rhetoric, Lukashenka looked more organic and more confident in the role of speaker. I constantly get the feeling that he is aware of some strangeness in his wording, and he takes genuine pleasure in mocking and mocking the cheering crowd of “yabateks” and staff journalists.
Putin has no energy at all – he “read” the speech like an excellent student in seventh grade. It was shameful, and that’s putting it mildly.
So against the background of “brother in the trench” Lukashenka looked adequate, healthy and energetic. This is only in the background, but nevertheless, “one-stop” even without scenery and billions of dancing white powder at the entrance.
Let’s start the discussion of Putin’s speech.
At the very least, she was arrested. Already traditionally “hacker DDoS attack”. In general, all Putin’s speeches begin with a delay due to a DDoS attack. It turns into a comedy with a schoolgirl always late saying “the bus was full, we had to walk”. And so every time…
This terrible “DDoS attack” nevertheless looked quite harmoniously against the background of a rather strange event held with an unclear purpose.
As I was informed by persons in forced emigration, it was planned to demonstrate national and international unity.
In fact, we should have seen several forms of unity on the forum:
– national unity among the broad masses of the population.
– national unity among active representatives of the economy
– national unity among the ruling class
– international cooperation “outside your damned West”.
It was interesting to me, purely from the point of view of political technology, how it would turn out to have my own candy from the contents of a shit-nuclear suitcase. But the following happened: the contents were dumped on the fan, after which they said that “as planned – we can disperse.”
I still understand the difficulties with imitation of support, but the organizers managed to fail even the message for the “gray masses”, which for the most part support the Kremlin. That is, it was not possible to demonstrate unity even at the “stratum” where it exists, not to mention the economic and political bloc.
The international plan has failed completely – the Taliban, quasi-formations, and Tokaev, mocking Putin with pleasure – this is the whole contingent, personifying Putin’s “external support”. Even Lukashenka was not there, who, even without a prepared speech, would have looked better than Putin with his set of arguments from Ren-TV.
The most interesting thing is that Peskov advertised Putin’s speech as something historical, radically changing the world order.
There really was a move to change the world order of affairs – it has been sounding for several months in a row, but always at the level of perception of the reality of patients from a madhouse.
If you look textually, then all the above groups (bydlomas, business, government, foreign representatives) were affected in the speech – and each had its own part of the “message”.
This is a rather old technique of “Kremlin writers” – they always divide the text into blocks according to social groups. But this does not mean that the text works in this way, especially when there is nothing to say, but you have to “defeat the dollar”, destroying the monopoly of the West.
In fact, the text was adapted to “messages to different groups of the population”, but at the same time it was completely devoid of content for anyone but Putin himself.
