Revolutionary Processes in Belarus

Social analytics of the processes currently taking place in Belarus have great potential for understanding how to get out of the country’s new type of post-Soviet authoritarianism. This authoritarianism is based on mediacracy, widespread information wars, and methods of post-ideological impact on the masses and on international partners. The peculiarities of these processes, their positive dynamics and main implementation strategies reveal how different they are from the standard models for the transition to democracy.
