Poland has said Belarus could get 3 Billion in aid if it helds democratic elections later this year.

Mr Sikorski made the offer during a joint visit to Minsk with German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle on Tuesday (2 November). He dangled the big carrot just six weeks ahead of Belarus' presidential elections in December and in the context of Belarus-Russia gas talks, which could see Russia put political pressure on Belarus with a big price hike.

In response President Lukashenko said "It has never yet happened here that elections were carried out in an undemocratic way."

Following our recent by-election ruling, any chance we can get €3 billion for the same reasons ?

Is poland trying to install a puppet government in Belarus?
No, just trying to rattle Kremlin opponent Lukashenko when the ink on a Polish/Russian oil deal is still drying. The Poles know their 3 billion Euro is safe. Added to that the non-granting of said aid acts as a tacit condemnation of the expected Belarus election without having to actually say a word or issue a statement about the results.
