November 25, 2020. Another program “B for Belarus” on PRIMUS radio. This time the major theme of the program is “From the political crisis to the humanitarian catastrophe". We cover this theme with Vladimir Baranich, a country consultant and media analyst. The word "Belarusian" is one of the four words of 2020 chosen by Oxford dictionary.
- Over 30.000 repressed in Belarus, about 150 political prisoners, massive assault on journalists, doctors, teachers and students.
- What does the regime resort to violence for such a long time? What does it want to achieve?
- Violence against women, old people, youth, the rich and the poor. The regime's brutal force and torturers as factors of Belarusian nation consolidation.
- Economic mentality of Belarusians. Are we ready for free market reforms and genuine capitalism?
