Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius called the re-elected head of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko “a former president,” Sputnik Lithuania reports.
The head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry posted a post with such wording on his Twitter page.
“The former president of Belarus is now asking Putin for help. Against whom? Against their own people carrying flowers down the street?” wrote Linkevicius.
The Baltic states, especially Lithuania, as well as Poland, they say, want to become “mediators” in resolving the conflict” and holding new “fair” presidential elections. Lukashenko, however, refused their “mediation.”
“As you know, the unrest, which lasts for more than one or two days, actively supports and controls both Lithuania and exporters of “democracy and freedom” from Great Britain, the Czech Republic, and Poland. Well, now that Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who lost Lukashenko’s election, has fled to Lithuania, there is at least a theoretical possibility that she will be declared the “real” president of Belarus. Such an alternative is offered by the authors of the so-called “dignity” revolution? And who are they? Well, this was clearly stated by the former Minister of Agriculture Pyatras Vaitkunas, who recently, speaking with the patriarch of Lithuanian conservatives Vytautas Landsbergis, called on the Lithuanian authorities to immediately turn to “partners” for instructions on what to do with Tikhanovskaya and how to “liberate” Belarus. Which “partners”? And first to Washington, then to Brussels and, finally, to Warsaw!” – writes publicist Jurgis Nyavegetis.
