MOSCOW. March 20 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Alexander Lukashenko on his reelection as president of Belarus, the Russian president's press service said on Monday.

"The outcome of the elections demonstrates voters' trust in your policies aimed at further raising the well-being of the Belarussian people," Putin said in his letter to Lukashenko.

Russia and Belarus have strong bonds of friendship, the Russian president said. "We are vigorously working to develop multidimensional integration cooperation and broaden relations in all areas. I am convinced that thanks to our joint efforts, we will be able to make headway in building our union and ensure our countries' gradual democratic development," Putin said.

"I wish Lukashenko success at the presidential post. I wish the fraternal Belarussian people peace and prosperity," he said.

Belarus: Big as Kansas, flat as Kansas, but makes Kansas look like Switzerland.

Why I need to care why some demented throwback Stalinist with a bad combover rules a nation like Belarus is a mystery to me.

<eerie music>

If I told you, the Overlords would know I knew, and then my SOL butt would meet with a series of unfortunate and increasingly bizarre accidents.

So as far as you're concerned, any congruence between what I post and reality is merely the result of blind chance.
