After the presidential elections in Belarus on August 9, mass protests took place in the country. The citizens of Belarus did not agree with the results of the counting of votes: Alexander Lukashenko, according to the CEC, received 80.1% of the vote, his main opponent Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya collected 10.1%.
However, the Belarusian opposition headed by Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya did not recognize the results of the elections and announced a peaceful revolution.
Tsikhanouskaya was forced to leave Belarus and move to Lithuania. Foreign Minister of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius stated that the leader of the Belarusian opposition had no choice that would provide her freedom in Belarus.
Meanwhile, criminal cases were opened against Tsikhanouskaya and her allies (members of the Coordination Board). The oppositionist is accused of seizure of power, urges to it and creation of extremist formation.
Besides, Tsikhanouskaya was put on the international wanted list not only in Minsk but also in Moscow.
