The bad news is that there have been riots every night in Belarus following the presidential election of August 10. And more bad news is also that we have a winner: President Oleksandr Lukashenka has triumphed again, and, after 26 years in the office, he is now officially in his sixth term. He will soldier on indefinitely. I predicted that “Bat’ko,” or “Daddy,” as he is fondly known among his people, would score between 85% and 99.5% of the vote. He garnished 80.8% of the vote and the voter participation was 79%. I stand corrected.
