In the new episode of the Minsk Express podcast, Brian Whitmore of the Atlantic Council shares his take on deconstructing the power vertical in Belarus. What is the Lukashenka dilemma? Will the Kremlin incorporate Belarus? What can the West do to release over 1,500 political prisoners in Belarus? And what makes Lukashenka’s power vertical so unique? These are some of the questions discussed in the episode.
Minsk Express is hosted by Maksimas Milta, Associate Expert at the Eastern Europe Studies Center, and is produced in cooperation with the LRT Radio.
