Svetlana Tikhanovskaya met with US Ambassador Julie Fisher

Summing up the results of Svetlana Tikhanovskaya's week.

Svetlana Tikhanovskaya received US Ambassador Julie Fisher on a visit. Fischer told Tikhanovskaya that the US Treasury Department is renewing sanctions against nine Belarusian state-owned enterprises. Cooperation with these enterprises should be stopped after 45 days.

The sanctions are imposed due to the systematic violation of human rights in Belarus. The US calls on the Lukashenko regime to immediately release all political prisoners. Sanctions are an instrument of pressure, which, together with negotiations, can lead to a resolution of the crisis in Belarus. 

This week, the leader of new Belarus made a call with the Secretary-General of the Council of Europe, Maria Peichinovich-Burich.

Svetlana Tikhanovskaya:
  • stressed that the membership of Belarus in the Council of Europe is a priority for the new Belarus because Belarus is also a part of Europe;
  • discussed the initiative to conduct negotiations with international mediation to resolve the crisis in Belarus;
  • talked about the regime's repressions against democratic forces and the declaration of leaders as terrorists;
  • urged to revise the forms of interaction between the Council of Europe and Belarus and create opportunities for the participation of democratic forces in the work of its bodies.

This week, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, along with US Ambassador to Belarus Julie Fischer, Polish Ambassador to Belarus Artur Mikhalsky, Lithuanian Ambassador to Belarus Andrius Pulokas, and Third Secretary of the Ukrainian Embassy Dmitry Serov, laid flowers at the Mother of Chernobyl monument in Vilnius. This gesture is timed to the 35th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster on April 26.

Svetlana Tikhanovskaya: “Chernobyl is a tragedy for our countries. She united our peoples - so that we remember about Chernobyl and never make such terrible mistakes again ”.
