Opposition presidential candidate in Belarus Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is at large. She is currently in Lithuania. This was reported by the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevichius. In the comments to the publication, users thank the minister for “saving her life”.

Note that Tikhanovskaya previously stated that she was not going to leave the republic.

“I do not see any reason why I should be arrested and I am not going to leave the country”, - she said at a briefing.

The circumstances under which Tikhanovskaya crossed the border are not named. There are no official comments from the Belarusian authorities.

It should be reminded that the headquarters of Tikhanovskaya did not recognize the results of the last elections, in which, according to preliminary data, Lukashenko won 80% of the vote, and Tikhanovskaya - less than 10%. According to the headquarters, 70-80% of citizens supported the opposition candidate. The headquarters demanded a recount of votes from the CEC.

Political scientists say the same thing. In their opinion, Lukashenko did not just lose the election - they tend to believe that the real results of the vote are mirror-like.
