Summary/Abstract: The revolution that rocked Ukraine and removed President Yanukovych from power at the eginning of 2014 has raised the question of whether similar revolutionary moods are present n Russia and Belarus. The likelihood of civil disobedience in these countries is related to the imilarities and differences between their societies, the presence or not of motivations omparable to those that led Ukrainians to protest on Maidan Square in Kyiv, the perception r ot of real potential alternatives to presidents Putin and Lukashenka, as well as their conomic rospects. Ultimately, it seems, all these factors indicate revolution is not to be expected in Moscow or Minsk anytime soon.
