Ukraine war: Exiled Belarus opposition leader speaks out against Russia’s threat | BBC News

In August 2020, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya was elected president of Belarus.
Tsikhanouskaya then fled to Lithuania in 2020 after President Alexander Lukashenko deployed a severe crackdown on protests against his disputed election win.

Siarhei Tsikhanouski is among several prominent imprisoned opposition figures whom relatives say have not been heard from in over a year.

“Russia wants to subjugate Belarus and Ukraine,” Tsikhanouskaya told BBC News.

Lukashenko has ruled Belarus since 1994.

Opposition figures are subjected to harsh penalties for organising protests.
