MINSK, 25 September (BelTA) - The protesters in Belarus do not have the most important thing, which is the unity in political goals, famous Russian journalist, blogger, historian and writer Armen Gasparyan said in an interview with ONT TV channel, BelTA has learned.
Commenting on the protests in Belarus, Armen Gasparyan expressed confidence that they are short-run ones. “It is not even that there is not a strong political component to discuss. They lack the most important thing, which is the unity the Coordination Council is talking about all the time,” he explained.
In his words, the protesters have different views: some, for example, advocate the Union State, while others are against it. “Based on what I heard from charming Minsk women, I understood that many of them are simply confused about what they have been coming out for and what they really want. Such things happen,” the historian said.
He stated that the participation in protests has become fashionable in many respects. “You will publish selfies, ten stories, somebody will like them and you can even appear on TV. This is a technology in itself. It is not a revolution, it is not politics, it is a travesty. The role given to women here is the most shameful thing that can be in this show. They are pawns in someone else's game,” the Russian writer added.
