Ukraine's Parliament registered a draft bill, which offers not to recognize the results of the recent presidential election in Belarus. Oleksiy Honcharenko, the lawmaker from the European Solidarity party posted this on Telegram.

"I registered a draft bill on non-recognition of presidential elections in the Republic of Belarus. We stand with you, friends! Hold the line! Freedom is close," Honcharenko wrote.

As is known, the presidential election in Belarus took place on August 9. The country's Central Election Committee (CEC) released the preliminary results, with Lukashenko collecting 80.23 percent of all votes and his main rival Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya scored almost 10. The latter's electoral campaign claimed they did not recognize the results released by the CEC of Belarus.
