The Belarusian opposition claims that during the visit of ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya to Brussels it was agreed to provide a package of assistance to the republic “after democratic changes have taken place there”. This was announced on Tuesday by the Telegram Channel of Tikhanovskaya “Pool First”.

According to the opposition, students, journalists, physicians and human rights activists will be able to count on the help of European countries “repressed by the regime.”

On Monday, Tikhanovskaya spoke at an extraordinary session of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament dedicated to the situation in Belarus. She accused President Alexander Lukashenko of unwillingness to engage in dialogue with the opposition and proposed sanctions against Belarusian officials whom she had listed as “responsible for violence in the country”.
