Open Letter to the President of Ukraine
“On 9 August, the Republic of Belarus held its presidential elections. According to preliminary information, the overwhelming majority of Belarusian citizens voted for the current president, Alexander Lukashenko.
At the same time, we witness how certain forces in the Belarusian society are trying to influence the results of the expression of will by means of force.
Ukraine experienced similar processes twice. The events observed in Belarus have a lot in common with the events in Ukraine in 2004 and 2014. First of all, we can speak about interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states by external players, artificial support of protest actions from outside in order to destabilize the situation in the country, up to the change of the existing leadership through violent coup. The incitement to physical confrontation with law enforcement agencies and to protest actions is a sneaky and brutal technology to create a snowball effect of protests that would destroy the Belarusian society. All this is presented as "the will of the people" and "the revolution", although the technologies of such "colour revolutions" have long been known.
