BNR Rada Rejects Election Results

The Rada of the Belarusian Democratic Republic in Exile (BNR) condemns the brutal actions of the Lukashenka regime against the peaceful protest demonstration held in Minsk on 19 December. The BNR Rada calls on the West’s governments not to accept the results of the presidential election in Belarus, in so far as they were falsified, and the declared “winner” Alexander Lukashenka was constitutionally disqualified from running.

New presidential election should be scheduled without the participation of Alexander Lukashenka. The election should be conducted under international supervision and with the candidates’ representatives present in the electoral commissions.

The BNR Rada calls on the West’s governments and the international institutions to speak out in defense of the supporters of democracy in Belarus. It calls for the immediate release of Uladzimir Neklayeu who was forcibly removed from hospital, the release of all other candidates, as well as of all detained opposition activists.
