The dictator showed an exceptional "talent" for self-shooting.
A year ago, a famous meeting of Lukashenka with oppositionists with the participation of Viktar Babaryka, Siarhei Tsikhanouski and others took place in the KGB pre-trial detention center.
Then there was no "Bandarenka case" yet, no Massandra "wiretapping", no "assassination attempt", no statements at the All-Belarusian Assembly, and much, much more, including "Zeltzergate", writes the Mirror of Power Telegram channel.
Yes, a year ago the regime and its leader were already irrevocably discredited, but at least (inside and outside Belarus) there was an illusion of its rationality. Today Lukashenka is no longer a subject of negotiations, but only an object.
Now no one has any illusions, including the eastern patrons of Lukashenka. That is, in a year, he and his regime managed to go a long way towards their complete and categorical rejection and self-destruction. And self-destruction is good because it is unstoppable from anywhere outside.
Is this self-destruction irreversible now? Political theory says that transformations are possible from almost any point of supposedly "no return". But the political practice of the regime and the state of mind of Lukashenka (on Friday he again frightened the cooperators that the Poles wanted to take over Belarus), they say that the self-destruction will continue.
