Fifty Belarusian oppositionists to receive asylum in Germany

Fifty Belarusian oppositionists to receive asylum in Germany

12 февраля 2021, 07:29
Germany is ready to provide shelter for 50 oppositionists from Belarus. We are talking about the oppositionists themselves and their families.

This is reported by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Previously, former presidential candidates Svetlana Tikhanovskaya and Valery Tsepkalo have already left the republic.

Let us remind you that Tikhanovskaya prepared a report on the situation of Belarusian political prisoners for her speech to the OSCE Security Council.

The political crisis in Belarus, accompanied by massive human rights violations, arrests, violence and killings, has been going on since August last year.

The reason for the split in society was the results of the presidential elections held in the country on August 9, in which the CEC again awarded the victory to Alexander Lukashenko, who has ruled the country since 1994.

Citizens dissatisfied with the official results of the voting consider the election results to be rigged in favor of Lukashenko. The opposition considers Svetlana Tikhanovskaya to be the real winner of the presidential race.
