UN Monitoring Group in Belarus

Tikhanovskaya about relations between Russia and Belarus.
At the same time, the leader of the Belarusian opposition noted that until now, “unfortunately, she had no official contacts with Moscow.” “Of course, there were some unofficial contacts and we do receive messages from there on an unofficial level,” she said.
At the same time, Tikhanovskaya stressed that during the discussions on the possibilities of resolving the conflict in Belarus at the OSCE level, she and her supporters more than once steted they would like to see Russia as one of the participants in these negotiations. “We are not going anywhere from Russia, just like Russia is not getting anywhere from us. We will always be neighbors and we would like our relations to remain friendly and mutually beneficial in the future,” the politician stressed.
According to the ex-candidate for the presidency of Belarus, both she and her team, and the Belarusians themselves “are disappointed with such an attitude of Russia towards Belarusians and the Belarusian society.”
According to Tikhanovskaya, ” Russia supported the dictatorship initially, because it did not expect Belarusians to change and get ready to defend their rights and a free future for Belarus.” At the same time, the ex-presidential candidate of Belarus did not rule out that the Kremlin “wants to introduce its candidate to the future election campaign.”
What Tikhanovskaya would tell Putin
When asked what would she say to Russian President Vladimir Putin in person, the leader of the Belarusian opposition replied: “The Belarusians have always had a wonderful attitude towards Russians. But due to the fact that Mr. Putin supports the regime – this means he supports beatings, torture and a derisive attitude towards the Belarusian people – the attitude of the Belarusians began changing”
“The more you support the regime, the more you lose the loyalty of the Belarusians and we do not want it to be lost,” she formulated her possible statement to the Russian leader in these words.
