Tsikhanouskaya Addressed Zelenskyy with Call to Establish Diplomatic Relations with Transitional Cabinet of Belarus

Tuesday, 11 October 2022

The leader of the Belarusian opposition, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, has suggested Ukraine establish diplomatic relations with its United Transitional Cabinet, the government-in-exile in reality.

She said this in her video address to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"The United Transitional Cabinet is ready to cooperate with Ukraine and establish diplomatic and political relations. We are ready to act together with Ukraine because, without a free Ukraine, there can be no free Belarus and Europe," Tsikhanouskaya said.

She recorded her address in Belarusian and offered Ukraine to "create an alliance with democratic Belarus, fight together and support the Belarusian resistance."

"I believe that Russia will be defeated. Ukraine will restore its territorial integrity and protect its independence. All this time, Belarusians will be with the people of Ukraine," Tsikhanouskaya said.

She said she was proud of Belarusians fighting in Ukraine against the Russian invaders. She mentioned partisan groups who oppose the Lukashenka regime in Belarus.

"Belarusians are not Lukashenko. Lukashenko is the shame of my country. He permitted to launch missiles from the territory of Belarus on Ukrainian cities. He announced the deployment of a joint military task force with Putin. We don't know What Lukashenko will announce tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. He no longer makes decisions independently. The Kremlin does it for him... That's why Belarus should leave the military-political and economic alliances with Russia, which undermine the national interests of our country," Tsikhanouskaya said.

Tsikhanouskaya announced the creation of the United Transitional Cabinet in August.

"European Pravda" explained in detail when and how Ukraine should recognize Tsikhanouskaya's government and why it is important to accomplish.
