Belarus Opposition Leader Flees The Country, US And EU Express Doubt In Election Process

Click to see full-size image

On August 10th, Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya fled Belarus and arrived in Lithuania to presumably be protected from the oppression President Alexander Lukashenko allegedly plans on exercising.

Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius said she was “safe.”

Linkevičius had earlier said he was concerned about Tikhanovskaya’s safety after she went to the Central Election Commission (CEC) building in Minsk to formally file a complaint over August 9th’s election, and that she then “seemed to disappear.”

Linkevičius told Lithuanian TV that Tikhanovskaya had been “detained for a long time” — up to seven hours.

“Neither the circumstances nor the location were known,” the minister said. “When I had tried to contact her for a few hours, unsuccessfully, the search began. There was a lot of communication all night, everyone cared.”

Veronika Tsepkalo, a senior ally of Tikhanovskaya, said that she had also fled the country late on Monday evening after being told there was “an order out for my arrest.”

At least one person was killed and dozens injured in a second night of clashes between riot police and protesters across the country.

The fighting late on August 10th appeared to escalate as police once again employed rubber bullets and stun grenades against demonstrators, while some shot back with fireworks and several Molotov cocktails.

Protesters also began constructing crude barricades from shopping carts, fencing, breezeblocks and other items found on the street.

The US Department of State issued a statement saying that it is “deeply concerned” over the elections in Belarus.

“The United States is deeply concerned about the conduct of the August 9 presidential election in Belarus, which was not free and fair. Severe restrictions on ballot access for candidates, prohibition of local independent observers at polling stations, intimidation tactics employed against opposition candidates, and the detentions of peaceful protesters and journalists marred the process. We regret that OSCE/ODIHR observers did not receive a timely invitation to monitor the vote. Free and fair elections, genuinely contested, are the basis for the authority and legitimacy of all governments.”

The contents of the statement are very tame, but, more or less, say the exact same that they have said towards Venezuela and other countries where the US has wished to see a full or partial regime change.

Separately, the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Lithuania, and Poland released a joint statement on the elections.

“As Foreign Ministers of Lublin Triangle States, we are deeply concerned with escalation of the situation in Belarus after the presidential elections and call upon the authorities to refrain from the use of force and to release all those detained last night.

Respect for fundamental freedoms and human rights, including democracy and rule of law, is essential for further development of independent and sovereign Belarus, which we fully support.

We are confident that only by means of dialogue the current situation can be resolved for the benefit of the people and the state of Belarus. In case of the need, we are open for any assistance or good offices in facilitating this dialogue.

The well-being and prosperity of Belarus and its people are important for the entire Europe and specifically our region. We are all interested in continuing mutually beneficial dialogue as well as cooperation based upon democratic values and focused on creating conditions for a common and stable future.”

The surprising part is that Russia hasn’t been entirely blamed for the entire scenario that unfolded.

Meanwhile, the 33 Russians that were detained in Belarus and were allegedly planning to stir unrest appear to be entirely forgotten.

Citing a source with the Russian intelligence agencies, the Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda reported that the Russian nationals, who were detained in Belarus in late July, fell victim to a provocation orchestrated by the Ukrainian intelligence agencies. The article depicts how the Russians were recruited. The so-called ‘employers’ called from virtual numbers. In the phone calls, they used false identities and fake positions in the Russian major oil company Rosneft.

It was an electoral ploy by Lukashenko, which is questionable, since he won anyway, but the protests are a reality, who, then will be blamed for the protests if the Russians who were supposed to organize them are in jail.

People are hopelessly dumb and naive.

Codenamed 'Gordon'

Another puppet controlled by United Snakes

Volker

As sketchy Lukashenko is but ‘This’ NED Puppet is quiet pathetic they try to stage an Maidan style event with her as ‘Champion’ but it failed.

johnny rotten

The whole West seems to be interested in this woman, whose name was not even known until yesterday, is the umpteenth demonstration that Western information is the most bogus ever existed, the Western totalitarian regime makes even the old USSR pale. they manage to make anyone who ran away from home and without any background become important, and even if each time they lose their bet they constantly raise with increasingly ignoble and poorly gifted characters, this too is a sign of decline.

West are not interested in a civil war between pro western oposition vs antiRussia Lukashenko…among other reasons is that the winner only can be Russia..which would send troops to Belarus/Poland border to avoid a new NATO puppet state next to Russia in case of pro western oposition be in power!

Антон С

“among other reasons is that the winner only can be Russia..which would send troops to Belarus/Poland border”

Almost impossible scenario. Lukashenko should invite troops first and RF parliament should approve the invitation. Only after that RF president can send troops abroad. You can remember crimean scenario, but there was quite different situation with some similarity. Crimea was under the danger of nazi cleansing. Ukronazis murdered some people in Korsun’-Shevchenkovskiy town when people from “anti-maydan” were coming home. Nazis stopped a bus and took people out, beating and torturing. It was before the referendum. That’s why crimeans decided to start resistance even with no help from bigger Russia. People were really happy after meeting russian army. Situation in Minsk is far from that. So chances to use RF army are very low. But people in Minsk would also meet these troops with flowers. Radical pro-western mass and neo-nazi would be enraged, but won’t fight in straight combat, they are cowards, the can be punishers only as local SS units. Ukronazis burned many villages with people in Belorussia during the War. There was only one battle with the Red army. Аfter that germans preferred to not use them at front.

Rhodium 10

Man dont be naive if pro western and nacionalist of the white red flag are in power there will be a Ethnic cleasing of pro Russians population and lenguage like in Ukraine..many Baltic, Ukrainians and Poles will support them!..thats why i dont rule out that Russian troops enter in some parts of Belarus with the support of local militia, PMC and Cossacks…especially along the Russian border included west near Kaliningrad…

Антон С

I would be glad to see russian troops in Minsk and Kiev hanging all neo-nazis as it was in 1945-46 in Kiev and Har’kov after tribunals. I’m just trying to be realistic. Putin won’t start a war. He is quite peaceful person. Not a pacifist, but close. Only heavy degradation of actual situation can force him to act military power. That’s why people wants to see even more stronger and decisive leader in the close future (after 2024). Trust to Putin’s policy was highest after liberation of Crimea from the power of Kiev’s coup. If not that, the situation here could be much worse than in Donezk and Lugansk.

AM Hants

Guiado, so comes to mind and how did that work out? Besides Guiado and friends running off with Branson’s Aid, following the music charity gig?

hvaiallverden

Yup, the shoah must go on, we all know by whom, and why, but what comes is also intresting, and again, Russia got buttf…. by the west and Luckyshanko, no 12d chessss moves.

https://www.stalkerzone.org/maidan-in-belarus-after-the-election/
The new uh…. president, since the west/UssA/Orcs, is already been eh…. hailed and recognised as they did an Guiweido move, like they did and stil cling to in the Venezuelan spectaculare flop, and this new president even have an Wikipedoia site for her self, of course.

Антон С

It was predicted before: Tihanovskaya leaves the country in exchange for stop street “protest”.

HiaNd

nothing like good “exchange”….
she prefers going to West instead of going to prison, how unusual

Антон С

It’s the symbol that Washington is not ready yet. If so, all western agents stayed in country.

HiaNd

or even that resistance to their coup scenario was much stronger than they could have imagined,
so she had to flee as their “front” marionette with usual propaganda of running away from “totalitarian dictator” to the safety of the “democratic” West

Volker

Kind of the same lame unimaginative shit the corrupt NED Stooge/Aggitator Navalny playes all the time in front of western lenses for Propaganda porpurses and to keep his pockets lined by them.

HiaNd

it is human condition and many people are on sale but only few get opportunity to sell themselves, like he does…
it is not his fault that they have made his name and almost a symbol of Russian “democratic movement” out of him..

So now when he is already some kind of brand, he must protect his “freedom business” after all and ask for adequate rise in salary…

Volker

And he’s not allone – BellingCrap [Elliott Higgins] for example is one despicable POS in the west.

Антон С

“freedom business”

Right at the point. He goes to vacations every month (Thailand, Greece, Spain, France). If business goes bad, he has “just” 6 vacations for year.

HiaNd

After so many vacations and travelling he is really tired so he does ned vacation (again and again)

HiaNd

“US And EU Express Doubt In Election Process”

Who gives a fuck?
You sorry losers and your effing “color revolutions”!

Volker

Specialy comming from the EU-Junta [Commission + Council] an illegitimate unelected bunch of corrupt cleptocrates NO EU-Citizen + the so-called EU-Parliament as well, has ever voted for – Democrazy a total a NO-SHOW.

HiaNd

it’s not that US electorate is in much better position and has to say something about members of the US senate either

Like somebody have already said:
If democracy ever worked, they would stop it long time ago…

Volker

The Thing IS, Democracy is not the Problem, lack of [Real]Democracy IS and it should correctly labelled as [Fake/Phony]Democrazy AKA Dog & Pony Show.

Антон С

What is the real democracy? Ancient greek democracy wasn’t better. Only men who can hold weapons have the voting right. Women, too old and too young people, slaves had no political rights.

Raptar Driver

Direct democracy is the only true form. In other words without politicians.

Антон С

True. Whole democracy is just a theater. Some parts in one countries are staged better, another parts staged worse. But all is staged. Some countries doesn’t play in democracy and get “tyranny” label as China.

HiaNd

yes that is basically so today…but still in 1970’s Scandinavian model was excellent example of modern capitalist democracy (and quite close to some kind of democracy)….and that was possible in those days before major oil prices crisis and economical downturn on the West that have made projects like that one, economically unfeasible

Антон С

Good model, but its cultural part still disputable with all their same-sex marriages, “juvenile justice” and other crap. How to separate one from another? Rhetoric question, no need to answer.

HiaNd

I didn’t say it was perfect and that should be copied to the smallest detail, just basic concept of that model was good and quite well executed thanks also to the mature and law abiding hard working citizens.

Captain Freedom

So popular that she had to leave the country, LOL

HiaNd

she could have been even more popular in prison….wasted opportunity

thomas malthaus

Does Venezuela’s Juan Guaido ring a bell?

Антон С

Guaido moved to Colombia almost in the beginning of coup, much before Maduro ordered to arrest him.

Trap Is Not Gay

In Brazil they did it, too (Jean, Willys, Lula, etc).

If you don’t elect the George Soros/Jew’s pawns they “flee” the country.

Their vocabulary, behavior are to match the Jew’s staged narrative (of “defending” or “protecting”).

So if they were “protecting”, so now they would be in “danger” (of normal people?).

It’s like a projection of super hero movies where they’re “saving the world” (but from nothing).

Sure, all were prepared in the disgraced JewSA.

HiaNd

Only very rich countries with peaceful attitude, decent moral structure, free education and law abiding citizens can reach some kind of semblance of democracy.

Антон С

If they survive under pressure of other countries.

HiaNd

True, very good point.
Democracy is extremely fragile.

thomas malthaus

What the US wouldn’t do to place more US and NATO troops in Belarus and install a puppet regime.

Tommy Jensen

I also have my concerns about this election which was without freedom as we know it.

Prohibition of International independent observers from the free and civilised world at polling stations.
intimidation tactics employed against US candidates, and the detentions and killing of peaceful protesters and International journalists, showed a dictatorship in disguise.

I regret that we cant have democratic elections anymore without dictatorships oppressing freedom.

Trap Is Not Gay

George Soros pouring money into, you mean? That’s your fake “freedom” to obey your masters.

“Lobby”, “funders” the JewSA pseudo Politics is basically Jewish “bad cop, good cop” as they say.

cechas vodobenikov

sure Tammy—USA=military dictatorship, police state worse than Stasi documented by Drake, oligarchy where election law only exist in dictatorships like azerbijian–Ackerman
“there is no functioning democracy in amerika; it is really just an oligarchy…” Jimmy Carter
LOL

Raptar Driver

Standard operating procedure.
Next they will declare her the true leader and send goon squads to over throw lukashenko.

Black Waters

Did you guys notice how the U.S use “Woman” and children as propaganda and coup tools? Trying to persuade public opinion with an attempt of looking “humanitarian” and appealing to the “charisma” of their Tools, that’s really evil and disgusting.
