Washington and London press President Aleksandr Lukashenko to conduct a political reform, consisting in the opposition, controlled by the West, receiving at least 45% votes in the parliament. Lukashenko would have 30% of seats in the parliament and the remaining ones will be given to marginal parties, including 2% for the quickly created pro-Russian ones. Only then would the US promise loans to Belarus.
No evidence given. No evidence that that such negotiations are taking place between Lukashenko and the US and British authorities. The constitutional reform in Belarus is now under discussion.
This story is part of the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West trying to “buy” Belarus and remove it from Russian sphere of influence.
