In an recent article for Stratfor Worldview, global security analyst, Sam Lichtenstein, wrote that Belarussian President Aleksandr Lukashenko is seeking to retain power and influence through a new constitutional reform process while also signaling that he will seek Russian support, a strategy that will probably revive anti-government protests and risk escalating into a standoff between Russia and the West. In this episode of the Essential Geopolitics podcast from Stratfor, a RANE company, Emily Donahue speaks with Lichtenstein about what both the president and the opposition are planning as winter winds down.
