Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya on Victory Day: “Putin and Lukashenka dragged Belarus into a war which Russia is bound to lose"

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya: “I appeal to you, Belarusians, and I ask you – if any of your family members or friends serve in the army or the police, talk to them. Have a talk with them, even if after 2014, 2020 or February 2022, you have not been on speaking terms. Talk to them and tell them that the dictators will lose this war, that they will want to drag our people down with them, but we cannot let them do it. Your, and my, and their forefathers were together when they were laying down their lives for this country. So, do we have the right to betray the heroism of those due to whom we all came into this world?”
