Pseudo justice in Belarus

Ignoring vehement protests from abroad, the regime in Belarus on Friday executed two men who allegedly committed the bomb attacks on the Minsk underground. This is the judgement of an unjust state, writes the liberal-conservative daily Corriere della Sera indignantly: "This is a pseudo-judicial system that delivers verdicts on command in that Gulag archipelago situated only a three-hour flight away from Rome. This is the justice of a regime that tramples on basic rights and uses terror to ensure public order. A regime that rejects the separation of power inherent to a constitutional state, and arrests and tortures its opponents. A regime that resorts to the cathartic symbolism of the death penalty to prevent the society it blackmails and incarcerates from revolting."

More than reconciliation

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev attended the state funeral of Polish President Lech Kaczyński. A gesture of sympathy that could mean more than reconciliation with the Russia-phobic Poles, writes the liberal-conservative daily Corriere della Sera: "The coming months will show whether the reconciliation will also bring a shift of the political axis in Central Eastern Europe. After the change of government in Ukraine, which elected a Russophile president in the person of Viktor Yanukovych, Moscow could now crank up the pressure on Warsaw. On a Poland [led by Lech Kaczyński, who all his life opposed Russia] that is a member of Nato and the EU today and that fought for centuries to escape the yoke of Russian dominance."
