"We announced May 29, the date of Sergei Tsikhanousky's detention, the day of solidarity. The Global Rally of Solidarity with Belarus will take palce this day. Politicians, residents of various countries, and diaspora will participate in it. But the main thing is for Belarusians to support each other on this day in the country - by all possible means: street rallies, symbols, letters to political prisoners", Tsikhanouskaya wrote.
Sergei Tsikhanousky, Svitlana's husband and potential opposition candidate was arrested in late May 2020. Later, another opposition figure Viktor Babariko was taken in, too.
