AND ABOUT. German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed with Tikhanovskaya the migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border and support for the democratic movement. The head of the German government assured that Berlin will make every effort and put pressure on the official authorities in Minsk to “put an end to repressions in Belarus.”

“Today I was assured that both the EU and Germany will firmly adhere to a policy of non-recognition of the regime. Consultations on how to resolve the crisis at the border do not mean that the EU’s position on the Lukashenka regime has changed, ”Tikhanovskaya said.

The leader of the Belarusian opposition movement will also speak at the EU Eastern Partnership summit. The official Belarusian authorities withdrew from this project in June 2021. It aims to integrate six post-Soviet states (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus) with the European organization.

Recall that the presidential elections were held in Belarus on August 9, 2020. Their winner was Alexander Lukashenko, who has headed the country since 1994. More than 80% of voters voted for the current president. The second place was taken by Svetlana Tikhanovskaya with 10.12%. She did not recognize the results of her will and left the country. Soon after the end of the election campaign, massive protests began in the country.
