Publicist and TV presenter Anatoly Wasserman said that Alexander Lukashenko, who took office as President of Belarus at the secret inauguration, once again turned out to be better than his competitors. In a column for REN TV, he praised the politician’s actions with the phrase “the dad has outplayed everyone again.”
“The street protestors went all out. And all because Alyaksandr Grigorievich Lukashenka has outplayed his opponents for the fourteenth time, ”he said.
According to the publicist, the politician successfully held a meeting in the pre-trial detention center with 11 supporters and members of the Opposition Coordination Council, and later transferred two of them to house arrest. Wasserman wrote that “the leaders living abroad” considered it a blunder of Lukashenka.
However, the host believes that this is not the case. “Is it possible that a person who has been leading the country for more than a quarter of a century does not foresee such a reaction from his noisy opponents? Does he look like a suicide? ” Wasserman asked.
He is sure that Lukashenka wanted to listen to the opposition, namely, “the position, albeit different from the position of the authorities”. “So the president gave his opponents the opportunity to show: are they oppositionists or mere contenders for the post of king of the hill? And they showed very different things, ”added Wasserman.
On October 10, Lukashenka held a meeting with the detained oppositionists in the KGB pre-trial detention center. It was attended, among others, by former presidential candidate Viktor Babariko and members of the Opposition Coordination Council. The topic of the meeting was the proposed constitutional changes.
In Belarus, for the third month, people regularly go to rallies and organize protests. The participants demand the resignation of President Alexander Lukashenko, the holding of new elections and the punishment of the security officials responsible for the brutal crackdown on demonstrators in early August. The authorities believe that the situation is being influenced from abroad.
