Political commentator Paulyuk Bykouski explains the different strategies of the Belarusian opposition regarding the presidential election.

All the opposition structures except for Tell the Truth campaign chose the strategy of boycotting the election, while Tell the Truth campaign advocates for voting for Tatsiana Karatkevich.

Bukouski underlines that there are two simulations surrounding the elections. The authorities pretend that they are holding elections, and a part of opposition pretends that it believes it and participate in the process. Another part of opposition pretends that it guides masses of people towards non-participation in the election campaign.

Bukouski concludes that the Belarusian society lacks energy necessary for changes.
