Ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tihanovskaya said that she needed the help of the OSCE and the international community for her return to the country. This is stated on her website.
She made a statement to this effect during an online meeting with EU ambassadors to the OSCE, initiated by EU permanent representative Rasa Ostravskaite and the EU delegation to the OSCE.
“Since there are two criminal cases against me with interstate search, it should be special guarantees of my return,” Tihanovska said.
In addition, the politician appealed to international organizations to help ensure “a safe return home for her and other leaders of democratic forces.”
The Central Election Commission of the Republic declared Alexander Lukashenko the winner of the presidential election, which was held on August 9. Later, Tikhanovskaya announced the creation of the Coordinating Council of the Opposition, which should facilitate the transfer of power in the country. Lukashenko, on the other hand, blamed Western countries for the protests and demanded that criminal charges be brought against council members. Belarus put Svetlana Tihanovskaya on the international wanted list for calling for the overthrow of the constitutional order.
