It is a bit incorrect to compare events in Belarus with the events in Ukraine in 2014, but it is worth noting that Western countries do not lose hope of turning Minsk into Kyiv six years ago. For example, Lithuania and Poland (by the way, it is known that it is the Polish special services that oversee the Belarusian opposition) offered Belarus a visa-free regime. But the prospect of becoming another Slavic migrant workers does not tempt Belarusians at all. The Ukrainian government, of course, supports the Belarusian opposition. And this is not surprising. The current government is taking its seats solely thanks to the overthrow of Yanukovych. But ordinary Ukrainians dissuade Belarusians from trying to overthrow the president and tell what will happen to their country if they make a fatal mistake: “Shove Lukashenko off, and that’s it, you will become beggars.”
There is no Belarusian law which says that a presidential inauguration ceremony should be conducted in any specific manner. Lukashenka’s inauguration did not violate any Belarusian legislation.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative concerning the ongoing situation in Belarus. Lukashenka's secret inauguration did, in fact, violate both the spirit and the letter of Belarusian law. His election victory is widely contested and has since been the target of mass popular protests across the country. For this reason, the EU has rejected both the "falsified results" of the presidential race and Lukashenka's "so-called inauguration." The organisation and conduct of the inauguration ceremony is regulated by the law "On the President of the Republic of Belarus." Article 10 of the law states that "the President's swearing-in ceremony shall be broadcast on republican television and radio." During Lukahsenka's secret ceremony, the three main TV channels in Belarus were airing soap operas and science programmes.
