Viable Opposition in Belarus?

I don't yet know what to make of it, but the opposition to dictator/president Alexander Lukashenko appears to be unifying behind one Alexander Kozulin. Obviously, I'm inclined to like this idea - a united opposition is necessary to pose a legitimate threat to Lukashenko's regime. We'll have to watch over the next several months to see if this guy can fashion himself into the kind of force that Viktor Yushchenko was in Ukraine.

Go visit Publius Pundit for a nice summary of the situation.

I have to wonder how much external/international news makes it into Belarus. If so, we (as the free world) can only hope your post works.

I've just found your post via technorati.com. I am in Minsk now and I am really desperate about our opposition. I see no leader in the opposition and that make me sad. My name is Cyril and you can contact me at sypsyna [at] gmail.com
