Belarus Headlines  2"Belarus Headlines", issue II, June 2011

Recent protests and the rapidly deteriorating economic situation in Belarus are the focus of the second issue of Belarus Headlines. We analyse why the Belarusian opposition has become almost invisible despite the growing discontent of Belarusians with the economic crises. We take a closer look at the difference between the very active position of Russia, which is increasing economic pressure on Lukashenka, and the more passive position of the West, choosing to adopt merely symbolic measures.

From this issue forward, Belarus Headlines will be published in cooperation with the London-based online periodical Belarus Digest.

In addition to having a new design, this issue also features a different approach to content. You will see original texts written on the most pressing Belarus-related problems from a non partisan perspective. In the future, the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies plans to join the Belarus Headlines team.
