Belarusian opposition leader Svitlana Tikhanovskaya met with US President Joe Biden at the White House.

She reported about it in Telegram .

The parties discussed political events in Belarus.

According to Tikhanovskaya, it was, in particular, about resolving the crisis through free elections of the President of the Republic and a key role in establishing a dialogue with Lukashenko by UN and OSCE representatives.

The opposition also said that the protests in Belarus “are not related to geopolitics. It is a democratic choice of Belarusians, and the moral duty of the United States is to support us.”

Tikhanovskaya insists on the release of all political prisoners and the non-recognition of Lukashenko’s decisions.

News is updated…

Protests in Belarus erupted in August 2020 – people took to the streets in connection with the rigging of the presidential election by Alexander Lukashenko. Demonstrators demanded a second ballot. The wave of protests was led by the wife of oppositionist Serhiy Tikhanovsky, Svitlana.

In response, security forces dispersed the action. Hundreds of people were injured in the clashes, and human rights activists reported the dead.

Political persecution continues in the country. In particular, there is pressure on human rights organizations and independent media. A number of countries around the world do not recognize Lukashenko’s status as president.

And on May 23 this year, Lukashenko ordered to land a passenger plane at Minsk airport, on board which was journalist Roman Protasevich. This has sparked new discussions in the EU and the US on imposing the next package of sanctions against Belarus.

    “Belarusian opposition leader Svitlana Tikhanovskaya met with US President Joe Biden at the White House.”
    Svitlana, when talking with the fossilized turd, remember Ukraine and NSII, watch your back and watch for any approaching busses.

    • This is from the WSJ. Ukraine have been demoted to a vacation time meeting with Biden, while this pro Russian that says Crimea is Russian, is allowed full access to lawmakers. It’s enough to make you puke.

      “The dissident leader also met with U.S. lawmakers during her visit to Washington. “I hope the images of Tsikhanouskaya in the halls of Congress send a clear message to Lukashenko that the United States stands with the Belarusian people,” said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.).”
