Russia’s political and public figure Harry Kasparov says the annexation of Belarus is unlikely, Realist quotes him as saying Nov. 20.
Belarus is off the Putin’s list as political dividends from the grab are unclear while Russia will have to feed another country, Kasparov says.
Similarly, Russia’s aggression against the Baltic states in unlikely as Putin now prefers to treat cautiously.
“Any aggression against the Baltic states is out of the question but Putin will continue to wage a hybrid subversive war. So far, with respect to Europe Putin believes it is more effective to act via his lobbyists, agents, supporters or hired politicians,” Kasparov explains.
