The negotiations of the Belarusian housewife Svetlana Tikhanovskaya with the US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Bigan in the format of a video conference ended with the confirmation of the course to overthrow Alexander Lukashenko in Washington.
As News Front reported, for several months now the pro-Western opposition of Belarus has been trying to implement a revolutionary scenario in the country. The putschists enjoy the support of Western countries. Poland and Lithuania are directly supervising the coup.
The reason for this gamble was the presidential elections. Alexander Lukashenko won them, however, both the European Union and the United States refused to recognize the results of the vote. They claim that housewife Svetlana Tikhanovskaya became the winner.
The West’s protégé has spent the past few days in Berlin, where she met with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. In addition, the American non-governmental organization “German Marshall Fund” arranged virtual talks between Tikhanovskaya and Bigan.
“Deputy Secretary of State Bigan reaffirmed the strong support of the United States for the loud calls of the Belarusian people to have their voice heard in determining the fate of the country”, – reads the communiqué issued following the discussion.
Also, the American official called for the overthrow of Lukashenko in order to hold “free elections” in Belarus under the strict supervision of Western observers.Tolerant but unhelpful – The Guardian criticizes Biden’s team selection criteria
