Maria Kolesnikova, a member of the Presidium of the Coordination Council of the Opposition of Belarus, as well as two other members of the Constitutional Court - Ivan Kravtsov and Anton Rodnenkov - crossed the border with Ukraine on Tuesday morning.

“The three of them went through registration at the Aleksandrovka checkpoint on the border with Ukraine, after the registration of their departure in the direction of Ukraine”, - RIA Novosti quotes the words of the official representative of the Belarusian border committee Anton Bychkovsky.

Let's remind that on Monday it became known about the kidnapping of Kolesnikova. At about ten o'clock in the morning, unidentified persons put her in a minibus with the sign Communication. From that moment on, it became impossible to get through to Kolesnikov. Her comrades-in-arms said that Kolesnikova was detained, but the Belarusian Interior Ministry has no information about the persecution of a member of the opposition council.

Later, the police announced that they had begun a search for the missing Kolesnikova.

More and more opposition forces are leaving the republic. Previously, a member of the Constitutional Court Pavel Latushko, who previously headed the oldest Belarusian theater named after Yanka Kupala, left Belarus, claiming that the KGB was putting pressure on him. The former candidate for the presidency of Belarus Svetlana Tikhanovskaya herself stated that under pressure from the special services she was forced to leave Belarus. She is now in Lithuania.

Let's remind that the political crisis continues in Belarus, which began after the presidential elections on September 9. Opposition representatives refused to recognize the results of the vote, according to which Alexander Lukashenko won. For four weeks, protests have been held in Minsk and other cities of the republic, accompanied by harsh detentions by security officials.
