Thanks for the answers, Andrija and Hungaria.
First about Russia, do they simply see Belarus as a buffer to the West and what separates the two nations? Cause out of all the former Soviet states it seems Belarus has kept the best ties with Russia. How big is the Russian minority over there and do they have any substantial influence?
So from what I gather the support for a new government isn't big enough to start something substantial. Also, it doesn't help when you see that in Ukraine the ousted party looks set to regain power in the upcoming elections this weekend.
The sanctions the European Union wants to impose IMO are a terrible method to get rid of a leader. You punish the people instead of Lukashenko himself and often it has the wrong effect. People end up hating the West because of it and turn to Lukashenko instead. They're better off supporting the opposition with money and other means.
Now onto your question Hungaria, why do you think it's that way? Is it the result of endless propaganda? Or is it fear? Since press freedom, freedom of speech, practicing religion etc seem to be very limited in Belarus. Or do people long for communist days? How is the economy holding up, is it a poor nation?
I read the EU looks set to have a meeting to discuss measures against Lukashenko's regime. I doubt anything constructive will come out of it. In fact I expect the press coverage to drop as soon as the demonstrations seize or public interest fades away.
BTW I'm not claiming Europe should invade Belarus or anything, far from it actually. I'm just debating their sense of conviction to try and make all of Europe democratic. I've always believed that to be BS of the highest degree and this is just proof of it.
