  1. I agree with Julie that Lukashenko’s regime will not end that quickly as it was in Egypt, Libia or Tunisia. There is still over 50% of society that trust him as a president. I believe that Lukashenko’s position in the country is too strong now to be changed radically.

    Lukashenka has “absorbed” the entire public space: from political power in the national economy and social system. The political system is centralized and subordinated to the unrestricted control of the president, while two thirds of enterprises are still state owned. Lukashenko is the highest authority in the allocation of positions, influence and money and the ultimate arbiter in the conflicts of interests of different groups and individuals.Over the years, several opposition politicians who might have provided leadership have disappeared or been imprisoned.

    Looking at the current situation in Bielarus I don’t see any room for change to democracy. The president remains rebellious towards Western pressure for change. He has dismissed all possibility of revolutions such as those which brought an end to old-style regimes in Georgia or Ukraine

  2. Being a Belarusian myself and knownig the situation form the inside, I extremely doubt the possibility of the second scenario. Even if the events took such a turn, they’d rather resemble the Romanian scenario from the year 1989. Only yesterday my colleagues and me were gloomily joking: „Probably the Belarusians just take comfort in the thought that ‚all in all, Łukaszenka is not eternal and some day it’s going to end in a natural way’…”

  3. I would like to post a comment about Bialorus, which I find a very intersting yet peculiar country. Bialorus seems to have two major problems. One of them is poor economic condition of the country. Secondly, the country is goverened by Aleksandr Łukaszenka who is often perceived as the last dictator of modern Europe. The future of Bialorus is one of the main concerns of many academic dealing with the problems of Cental and Eastern Eurpoe . Two scenarios are possible. People will either continue to support Łukaszenka (suprising as it might be, he is really popular with Belarusians), or their level of awareness will grow and they will rebel against their president. Taking into account, so – called Arab Spring as well as the recent demostrations againt the rule of Putin in Russia I find the second scenario more and more possible. However, it should be stated clearly that the process of overthrowing Łukaszenka will be gradual and somehow hindred by the fear of economic inequalities. Today, despite being poor Belarusians accept their standard of living because everybody has more or less the same level of income. Therefore, they feel that their situation is more just that for instance the one of Ukrainians who can be divided into small number of wealthy oligarch and the overwhelming number of impoverished citizens. In my opinion Łukaszeka is aware of his unsure positions and that is why he constantly persecutes opposition and controls the media. However, I strongly believe that all these efforts will prove futile and quite soon Belarus will become a democratic country.
