The collection of applications from those wishing to join the coordinating council will be carried out by Olga Kovalkova, Tikhanovskaya’s confidant and Maxim Znak, a lawyer
“I appeal to the international community, European countries with a request to help us organize a dialogue with the Belarusian authorities,” the appeal says.
