Civil unrest in Belarus intensified, and the Russian authorities made an important decision: arrest the Lukashenko opposition

Since the general election in August 2020, Belarusian demonstrations have continued to this day. Countless protesters, at the instigation of Western forces and opposition groups, went on strike and went on strike, sitting in the streets and alleys to demonstrate. Recently, Russia, as a hard-core ally of Belarus, finally made an effort to arrest Belarus’ separatist forces.

According to a report by the World Wide Web on November 4, on November 3 local time, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov stated in an interview that Russia has listed Belarusian presidential candidate Tikanovskaya as a legal obligation to Belarus. The wanted.

Later, Lavrov explained to this decision that the “Regarding the Wanted Order between CIS Countries” on December 10, 2010 required Moscow to assume this obligation to Minsk. 

At present, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs has established a database of wanted criminals, and at the request of the Belarusian authorities Russia has listed Tikanovskaya among them.

After the presidential election on August 9, local time, nationwide demonstrations swept Belarus. The vote count of the Central Election Commission showed that Lukashenko won 80.10% of the vote, winning by an overwhelming advantage.

This result was questioned by the opposition. Because Tikanovskaya ranked second, but the vote rate was only 10.12%. She refused to recognize the results of the election, so she left Belarus for Lithuania, and with the help of Western countries, she set off a “repellent storm” in Belarus.

Tikanovskaya, 38, is a former English teacher and interpreter with no political experience. But it can use the anti-Russian sentiment in Europe to exert pressure on Lukashenko and Russia. 

Recently, Tikanovskaya proposed to the EU to impose more sanctions on Lukashenko and his supporters, and even the Belarusian Olympic Committee. She also praised the EU’s sanctions on 40 Belarusian officials in October.

On November 2, local time, thousands of Belarusians once again gathered in Minsk to demonstrate loudly. Riot police used stun grenades to deter the crowd.

The NATO camp is not idle either. The army has assembled on the western border of Belarus and has conducted two military exercises in Poland and the Baltic Sea recently. Even the U.S. Army evacuated from the Middle East has moved and deployed to countries near Belarus.

The Belarusian Defense Minister Victor Helenin pointed out bloodily that the US military’s move was an excuse to strengthen its military presence in the European region. It is undermining international and regional security.

On October 30, local time, Lukashenko announced the closure of the western border of Belarus, including the border crossings of Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine, and promised to quell the internal unrest as soon as possible.

The Russian side hinted that it may deploy troops to Belarus to resist NATO threats. On October 27, local time, Russian Defense Minister Shoigu stated at a meeting of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation that the Russian Ministry of Defense has regarded “providing the military security of the Confederate States” as one of the military’s current tasks.
