Belarus President Visits Eastern Russia and Meets With Putin

Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya has called on the European Union to respect Belarus’s vote and not recognize the results of the recent presidential election.

 

She spoke in a video message from Lithuania to which she has fled.

The EU already assumes that the polls have been tampered with to keep autocratic President Aleksander Lukashenko in the saddle.

The EU government leaders will meet on Wednesday afternoon about the tense situation in Belarus.

The digital summit, according to European Council President Charles Michel, is intended to show solidarity with the Belarusian people after protests against the re-election of President Lukashenko were brutally crushed.

With an end to violence, de-escalation and dialogue, the country can emerge from the crisis, according to the EU. The EU is already in the process of drawing up a sanction list of those responsible for violence, repression and falsification of election results.

Their bank balances in the EU will be frozen, and they will be denied travel to Europe. Work is also underway on a proposal for a dialogue between the Lukashenko regime and the opposition.
