    Will there be a new attempt at revolution in Belarus?

    Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko is confident that the risks of a revolution in his country have not yet been removed. The opposition is preparing a new destabilization plan.

    "They have already worked out a plan, I sent it to the presidential administration to be worked out and disseminated there, so that you all can see what they want. Well, this is a complete joke, said Lukashenko.- This is a plan from the figutives. When I was reading this plan, I, as a man with a life experience, I had a thought: Can it be true that the West will be so foolish to give money for this again? Nevertheless, you'll see this plan".

    According to Lukashenko, the opposition in Lithuania plans to bring its supporters to the streets of Belarusian cities.

    Ph.D., scientific director of the ANO socio-economic and political consulting Center for Ethnic and International Studies, editor-in-chief of the "Archon" magazine Anton Bredikhin believes that if this opposition plan is in the hands of the president, then most likely it is "fictitious". At the same time, Lukashenko's opponents are indeed continuing to work on removing him from the presidency.

    “I am sure there is a lot of work being done. It did not stop, but had begun even before last year's protests. Work abroad included not only big information campaigns, the fight against Lukashenko in the international information field, but also receiving grants from a number of American and other Western foundations. Both Tikhanovskaya and other members of the opposition have a powerful base in Lithuania and Poland, as well as great support from the United States and European countries," the expert said in an interview with "Vestnik Kavkaza".

    The Belarusian opposition has quite a few plans to destabilize the government. “Lukashenko is too self-confident and believes that he has the only plan that can help him stay in power. I am more than sure that this is not a real opposition plan. Destabilization of the situation in the country is quite possible both in winter and in spring. Let's remember Euromaidan, it took place in cold weather. Therefore, there is no need to think that someone will wait for a warm period in order to bring people to the streets," Bredikhin emphasized.

    Lukashenko is still delaying integration with Russia. He hasn't signed "road maps". This delay is risky for his power, the political scientist is sure. “The longer he hesitates to integrate, the more chances he will lose his presidency and be forced to leave for Russia or, for example, China. There is a risk for Lukashenko to end his political life. He won't be able to overcome the next destabilization and attempt to "reboot" Belarusian society without Russia's help. His law enforcement agencies will not be able to resist the protest of the collective Belarusian opposition," Bredikhin added.

    Let us remind you that the situation in Belarus began to worsen after the presidential elections on August 9, 2020. The current President Alexander Lukashenko won a landslide victory there. The opposition accused the CEC of falsification and brought thousands of supporters to the streets. Runner-up candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya did not accept the results, left the country and set up the Opposition Coordinating Council. In February 2021, protests began to subside. Lukashenko announced his readiness to adopt a new Constitution and redistribute power in the state, reducing presidential powers.
