Strangely, the IMF projects economic decline and unemployment growth in Belarus, although in contrast to foreign countries, it did not implement lockdown measures. It is possible that the Belarusian opposition provided fake statistics to the IMF. As a precondition for a new loan the IMF demands a free price formation. In practice this would mean that prices for surgical masks, antiseptics, drugs, and toilet paper would increase many times during the epidemic. The IMF has long ago become a fake organisation bogged down in bureaucracy, intrigues, and money-laundering. However it conditions the financial support with elections, social programs for population, and even gender equality. It soon may lead to a situation where the IMF will be dealing with sexual minority issues and defend their rights. Furthermore, the IMF is now pushing the government of Belarus to introduce strict limitation for population due to the coronavirus epidemic.
Instead of cooperation with the IMF Belarus should negotiate with Russia within the Union State of Russia and Belarus. Russia does not have similar preconditions for price regulation, domestic policies, gender equality, or sexual minorities.
