"Not everyone agrees with the results": Zelensky assessed the clashes in Minsk, hinting at the illegitimacy of Lukashenka


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy commented on the results of the presidential campaign in Belarus on his Facebook, drawing attention to the popular unrest after the publication of the election results.


Our neighbors are now experiencing a difficult time, right now determining the direction of further development of their country is always difficult. As you can see, not everyone agrees with the announced results. And, as you know, any legitimacy arises exclusively from public trust. Doubt about election results is a direct path to protests, aggression and violence, which are now growing

- Zelensky stressed, hinting at the illegitimacy of the "newly elected" Lukashenko.

The Ukrainian leader called on the conflicting parties to dialogue and tolerance - in his opinion, this is the only way to achieve agreement in society. Understanding between different political forces will ensure the movement of Belarus towards democracy. Otherwise, violence and chaos will grow, which will lead to very sad consequences. In Zelensky's opinion, everyone should be interested in a constructive dialogue - both the authorities and the demonstrators. He personally, as the president of neighboring Ukraine, noted that he would like to see Belarus as a country defending democratic values.

As a result of the elections in Belarus on August 9, Alexander Lukashenko received the approval of 80,23 percent of voters, his main competitor Svetlana Tikhanovskaya won about 9,9 percent of the vote. Opposition forces, not believing the official statistics, staged massive protests on the streets of Minsk. The security forces used noise grenades against the demonstrators, machinery and special means for dispersing street dissenters.

    - Well, everything is so simple; but it is true and effective enough ... - This "poor experimental sheep" Svetlana Tikhanovskaya ... - was intended in the event that if suddenly Lukashenka gets a collapse in votes ... - then she will take on a certain number of in reserve votes; in case the elections would spill over into the second round ... - And thus Lukashenka and this Svetlana Tikhanovskaya in the second round would have remained practically "one-on-one" and ... and here Lukashenko would have won by the number of votes gained ... - But ..., even the second round was not needed ... - victory in the first round ...

    Luka was making such a mistake to the Westerners and Ukraine, but they would not recognize his victory in the elections. Sashik is increasingly reminiscent of the famous literary hero - Prince Myshkin.
