Belarusian presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya wrote down an appeal to the European Council, in which she urged EU countries not to recognize the results of the August 9 presidential elections.
The video in English was published on the “Country for Life” YouTube channel.
According to Tikhanovskaya, the August 9 elections were neither fair nor transparent, their results were falsified, and people who took to the streets of Belarusian cities to defend their choice were severely beaten, thrown into prisons and tortured by the regime desperately clinging for power.
“Hundreds of injured, at least two people lost their lives,” she recalled.
“This is happening right now in the center of Europe. I urge you not to acknowledge these rigged elections. Lukashenka has lost all legitimacy in the eyes of the people and the whole world, ”says Tikhanovskaya in her address.
She also said that she initiated the creation of the Coordination Council for the peaceful transfer of power in the country, which will announce new democratic elections in the country with the participation of international observers..
“I urge you to support the awakening of Belarus. I call on all countries to respect the principles of international law. I urge to respect the sovereignty of Belarus and the choice of the Belarusian people, ”Tikhanovskaya stressed in her video message to the European Council..
Today the European Council will hold an extraordinary video summit on the situation in Belarus.
Great Britain, Canada, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, as well as foreign ministers of 27 countries of the European Union have already announced non-recognition of the results of the Belarusian elections.
