PandaDoc director Dmitry Rabtsevich and political scientist Yuri Voskresensky (pictured), after a recent meeting with the President of the Republic Alexander Lukashenko in the KGB pre-trial detention center, changed the preventive measure.

This was reported by the state TV channel Belarus 1.

The broadcast showed Voskresensky, who was standing on the street.

Last Saturday, Lukashenka held a meeting in the KGB pre-trial detention center with oppositionists detained during the presidential campaign and after it. The head of state discussed constitutional issues with them.

According to Voskresensky, the government is ready for dialogue not only in words, but also in deeds. He noted that following the meeting with the Belarusian leader, he was instructed to start preparing alternative proposals to amend the current Constitution and present his vision of further steps by the authorities to release citizens who “are not as socially dangerous for our country as they seemed at the first stage".

The meeting was also attended by ex-chairman of the board of Belgazprombank, former presidential candidate Viktor Babariko, as well as his son Eduard and members of the presidium of the opposition coordination council Lilia Vlasova and Maxim Znak and other opposition representatives.

Let us recall that Rabtsevich, and with him three other top managers of the Minsk office of PandaDoc, were detained in early September on suspicion of embezzlement on an especially large scale. The company is confident that the accusation against the heads of its office "is completely untrue and has no basis", and the company's legitimate activities have been confirmed by repeated international audits and other checks.

It should be reminded that protests against the results of the presidential elections have been going on in Belarus for the third month. On them, according to official data, Lukashenka won. The opposition does not agree with this, which has created a coordinating council to negotiate with the current government and seek new elections in the country. Earlier, Lukashenko called this council "an attempt to seize power in the country". A criminal case was opened against the opposition council, and members of its presidium were either expelled from the country or arrested.
