The head of the Department for the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Alexei Polischuk, expressed Moscow’s alarm at the possibility of foreign attempts to destabilize the situation in that country.
In declarations to the Sputnik news agency, he considered that actions to represent color revolutions and to establish their own control over the situation are tactics well rehearsed by the West.
Polischuk called to pay attention to the origin of funds allocated by other countries to Belarusian opponents to support their activities.
The Minsk authorities are preparing a draft of a new Constitution to be put to a referendum no later than February 2022.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko denounced in late November that the opposition outside the country is preparing a new plan to destabilize the state in the days of the ballot.
