Please, check if the following passage is grammatically correct. Thanks

Country A is still a closed country that has not yet undergone a process of openness and globalization as opposed to country B. Therefore, exposure of the inhabitants of country A to the West, including to the social networks and the Internet, is far more limited compared to country B. In this context, it is worth noting that despite criticism directed at Mr. Y today, it should be admitted that over the years the government, under his leadership, has showed patience and tolerance towards the opposition, allowing it a space of activity, albeit restricted. Throughout the last decades, this space of activity has become the basis on which a popular protest has evolved and eventually broke out. In country A, by contrast, Mr. X's regime wields its heavy hand and prevents any political activity other than that under the complete supervision of the authorities.
