What Will Happen To Belarus After Lukashenko Falls?

What Will Happen To Belarus After Lukashenko Falls?

Even with Vladimir Putin backing Belarusian Dictator Lukashenko, his position looking increasingly unsustainable. The future is uncertain.

On August 9, 2020, Presidential elections were held in Belarus. Officially, 66-year-old Alexander Lukashenko , who held this post for 26 years, won the election. According to the Belarusian Central Election Commission (CEC), he received 80.1% of the vote, while his main rival, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, received 10.1%. However, the opposition did not recognize the result, since it was considered that at least 70% of voters voted for Tikhanovskaya.
