After the end of the dictatorship, there is a chance to restore a normal economy.
One of the leaders of the Belarusian opposition, political prisoner Mikalai Statkevich called for the introduction of economic sanctions against the Lukashenka regime.
The text of the letter was published by his wife Maryna Adamovich.
“I am worried about people on the outside. Moreover, they began to kill in the courtyards.
The brutality of the authorities deprives our economy of subsidies from the West and makes it difficult to receive subsidies from the East. And without external subsidies, our “unique model” will collapse in six months.
If the violence and killings do not stop, then the West will be forced to move from symbolic to real economic sanctions. Although they say about European politicians that they are weak-willed, they have public opinion and opposition. And with real economic sanctions, everything here can go down the drain in 1-2 months.
Sorry for the country and the people. But then there is either endless horror, or the horrifying end of the “unique model”, after which there is a chance to establish a normal economy.
Such is the situation,” Mikalai Statkevich wrote.
