Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya on new EU restrictions: “To convince the world to separate Belarusians and the regime, we need the efforts of all Belarusians, not just politicians”

In a interview with Zerkalothe Belarusian leader explained why the control at the borders between Belarus and the EU has been tightened and what development the situation may take:

“The situation at the border and the restrictions against the Belarusians they are the consequences of the Lukashenka regime’s policieswhich has pushed us into a political and economic union with Russia”.

“If the regime was bothered by the interests of the citizens rather than its lust for power, none of this would have happened. But then the regime would not be a regime, and our country would be completely different”.

“Neither we nor anyone else can convince EU politicians to make decisions that they consider to be against their national security interests. I assume that the European Union has reviewed various sanctions circumvention systems and decided to act more decisively”.

“To convince the world to separate Belarusians and the regime, we need the efforts of all Belarusians, not just politicians. It is our collective responsibility to show that we do not support Lukashenka’s policies and oppose the war. We Belarusians must be seen and our voices heard”.

“We are currently working to maintain passenger border crossings so as not to leave Belarusians alone with the dictator. Both Lithuania and Poland belong to us. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland, Radoslaw Sikorski, confirmed recently that citizens will not be prohibited from crossing the border”.
