Belarusian opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya appealed to law enforcement officers involved in dispersing the protesters. The politician urged them to side with the people and set a deadline for it. This was reported by Tsikhanouskaya's press service on Telegram.

The opposition called on law enforcement officers to side with the demonstrators by October 25, when the so-called People's Ultimatum of Lukashenko comes to an end.

According to Tsikhanouskaya, all law enforcement officers who dispersed the demonstrators will be responsible for this and there will be no "general" lustration.

"The people's ultimatum is your chance to side with the Belarusians. If you do not agree to carry out criminal orders, just do not do it. The regime knows that it is dying and is trying to share its fate with all of you, tarnishing the honor of your uniform. Do not let that happen. Those who committed all these crimes will be held personally accountable. There will be no general lustration. The new Belarus needs your work, we need a system of law enforcement agencies," the statement said.

As we reported earlier, Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya, Maria Kolesnikova, and Veronika Tsepkalo were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
