President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes that if Belarusian government keeps avoiding the dialogue with its own people, this government may be removed from power. Zelensky said so during his meeting with Zuzana Caputova, his Slovakian counterpart.
Thus, Zelensky reminded his Belarusian colleague Alexander Lukashenko about the bloodshed that took place during Euromaidan protests in Kyiv early in 2014.
"If the government does not find the opportunity for the dialogue with its fellow citizens, it will be gone... We buried Ukrainians who were killed during Euromaidan. We saw people burn in buildings. What we see today? If the government does not stop its actions, especially the actions aimed against its people, there will be a very strong response from the people", Zelensky said.
The President claimed that Ukraine repeatedly urged the Belarusian government to make dialogue with its citizens.
Easrlier, we reported that some 360 people were detained during the inauguration of Alexander Lukashenko, who is considered the winner of presidential election in Belarus. Thousands of citizens belive the elections were rigged; protest action continues since August 9, the Election Day.
