Tikhanovskaya told Gordon about the resumption of mass actions in Belarus: The protests did not die out

The protests in Belarus “did not die out”, only their form changed. Mass unauthorized actions on the streets of the republic will resume in spring. This was stated in an interview with Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon by the leader of the country’s opposition, ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

In recent months, political observers have argued that protest activity in Belarus has come to naught. There are enough reasons for such statements: people were largely demotivated by the lack of noticeable results of mass actions, weather conditions, as well as the growing brutality of the security forces discouraged people from taking to the streets.

By all appearances, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko is comfortably “on bayonets”, and the strength of the regime allows him to gain time and think over the most profitable ways out of the current situation. Many a logical question arose: what will the protest activity hold in the foreseeable future?

Opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya gave an extensive interview to Ukrainian Dmitry Gordon. The politician said that the protests in Belarus “did not die out”.

According to Tikhanovskaya, the format of the shares has changed. As for street activity, it will resume in the coming spring, the politician added.

Tikhanovskaya noted that now the people are not able to act openly, because for this they are threatened with persecution and the prospect of getting a prison term. Recall that the peak of protest activity in Belarus fell on the first days after the presidential elections on August 9, 2020.
