Economist and head of the analytical center "Strategy" Leonid Zaiko sees several scenarios according to which events in Belarus may develop. The expert said only one thing with certainty: the resignation of Alexander Lukashenko is inevitable.
While Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is putting forward demands to the Belarusian authorities, Alexander Lukashenko is doing everything to stay in the presidency. Residents of the republic still believe that they can get rid of the current regime, so they continue to organize protests.
According to Zaika, in the near future Lukashenka may take a long-term vacation. The duties of Alexander Grigorievich will temporarily be transferred to the State Council, which will include not only experienced people, but also a new generation of managers. The expert suggests that this scenario is supported by the Kremlin.
There is no hope for Lukashenka's voluntary resignation, the economist believes, since it is obvious that Alexander Grigorievich will fight for the presidency to the last. Most likely his leaving "for health reasons." Zaiko noted that it is difficult to observe what is happening in the country, and it is even more so to be inside this process.
Leonid Fedorovich called the Lukashenka regime a fragment of the USSR. At the same time, the expert could not fail to note the resilience of the President of Belarus. Zaiko believes that Alexander Grigorievich needs to compete for a place in the Kremlin, since his rating is higher in Russia.
