This Sunday, February 25, authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko is organizing legislative elections in Belarus. Opposition candidates have not been able to register, even to participate in the campaign, because they are in prison or in exile.

Those who wanted to monitor these so-called elections were arrested. Only pro-regime candidates are allowed to run. It's all just a show, a performance, which they present as an election, says Pavel Slunkin, associate researcher at the European Council for International Relations.
