We cover this theme with Vladimir Baranich, a country consultant and media analyst.

  • Professional doctors and medical stuff and the atmosphere of deep disbelief in official statistics on coronavirus.
  • Change of attitude to COVID-19: before and after the disease.
  • Belarusian in the state of constant pressure, tension and oppression. Losing hope, losing patience and getting much angrier.
  • 77% of heads of district executive committees (local bodies of power) are occupied by graduates of agrarian universities. Not a single district is headed by a graduate of Belarusian State University.

  • Facing a crisis a Belarusian will more likely to double the volume of potato planted rather than take civic actions and demand the change of the government.
  • Belarusian official statistics uses its own methodology on many issues including unemployment. Why the official unemployment number of 0.3% is a gross fake.
  • Why do Belarusians ignore psychological aid from professionals preferring alcohol and escapism?

  • Belarus is a big collective farm and A. Lukashenko is the boss of all red directors.
  • Brainwashed by education system, propaganda machine and pop culture.
  • Typically Belarusian principles, “Maybe this is the way life should be” and “My house is in the outskirts. I know nothing”. How Belarusians cope with new information and its abundance;
  • Traditional relations between State and Man: Lukashenko as a shepherd and people as sheep.
  • Longing for Big Government to ensure everything from free education, healthcare and job security for life.
  • Suspicion and even rejection of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs: the notion of infested fleas
  • Poker face as defense from the outside world.
  • Marching from the Soviet style marsh. Belarusians realize that it is their swamp. Maybe they will start wishing to live in a decent place – not on a swamp.
