This is a similar level of demagoguery that we have observed during the Euromaidan protests in Ukraine. Did Ukraine achieve prosperity in the six years after its coup d’état? Is Ukraine closer to its stated goals of joining the EU or NATO.
In fact, what happened to Ukraine is a serious drop in living standards, mass unemployment in some regions, and exodus of millions of souls. Ukraine is further away from joining the EU than it was in 2013. In 2013, Ukraine was territorially complete and there wasn’t any military conflict that makes it extremely unattractive for westward integration.
Much like in Ukraine, the opposition in Belarus does not have a plan to elevate Belarussians out of poverty. In fact, the place is gonna suffer like never before should the opposition seize power.
