‘The Plan is in Misery’: Belarus opposition leader slams Lukashenko

The major challenger to Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko says he’s severely weakened by months of protests, which the resistance won’t give up in its push to boot him out.

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya left for Lithuania per day following the August 9 election, under pressure by the government. But she has been busy in exile, calling for global sanctions against Lukashenko and his administration.

“We continue fighting,” Tsikhanouskaya informed Euronews in a meeting.

“Our presentations are functioning and also our strikes are functioning. The plan is in misery. And also the simple fact that they’re kidnapping people demonstrates that they sense fear and do not understand exactly what to do,” she explained. “So we’re moving on, and we are going to win”

Tsikhanouskaya stated she had not learned from Maria Kolesnikova, yet another prominent opposition figure that went missing on Monday, for over 24 hours.

“We do not know where she is, she was simply flirty,” Tsikhanouskaya explained.
