The Popular Revolt is still going on and especially on weekends many people take to the streets to continue to protest against the stolen elections and the violence from the authorities. Unfortunately, the uprising did not lead to a rapid retreat of Lukashenko. We are now for the long game.
Last week, the EU indicated that it will now also prepare economic sanctions against people and organizations (state-owned companies) on which the regime leans. Indeed, hit them where it hurts, in the wallet! Hopefully, Western suppliers and buyers of the state-owned companies will also take this up.
Finally, the absolute lack of any violence on the part of the protesters, despite the disproportionate violence used against them, remains admirable!
