Lithuania: Tihanovskaya had no choice but to leave Belarus

After the elections, the leader of the Belarusian opposition was forced to leave for Lithuania

The leader of the Belarusian opposition Svetlana Tikhanovskaya left her country under the threat of detention, and the Belarusian authorities facilitated her departure, said Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius.

“Obviously, she faced some pressure and she had no choice but to leave the country,” Linkevičius said at a press conference..

“Apparently, the other choice was incompatible with freedom, so she had to take the offered opportunity to leave the country, and she did,” added Linkevičius.

According to Linkevicius, Tihanovskaya has been granted an annual visa and a place to live in Lithuania..
