The current leadership of Belarus may be prosecuted at the International Criminal Court in The Hague for violence against protesters. Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid stated this.

It is very important that decision-makers in Minsk understand that The Hague is not really that far., - stated in an interview with ERR Kaljulaid.

She also noted that those responsible for the violence should be punished as soon as possible. According to her, the fate of Belarus should be decided only by its people, and outside interference "is impossible and inexpedient." She stressed that this applies to "both the East and the West."

As wrote, Russian President Vladimir Putin, during talks with his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko, spoke about the events taking place in the republic after the August 9 elections. According to the Russian leader, the people of Belarus must deal with the current state of affairs themselves.

For Lukashenka, these negotiations are taking place within the framework of the first foreign visit after the elections. The voting results led to massive protests in Belarus that continue to this day. Tens of thousands of people participate in street marches, believing the voting results to be falsified. According to the official data of the Central Election Commission of the republic, 80.1% of voters voted for Lukashenka, and 10.1% for his main rival Svetlana Tikhanovskaya. The protesters demand the resignation of the country's leadership, the holding of new and fair presidential elections, the release of those detained for participating in the rallies and punishment for the security forces who committed violence against the demonstrators.
