‘How can we encourage an interest in Belarus, when you almost never hear anything about the country in media? In Belarus one can’t speak out loud about the situation, but we who live in a country where human rights are respected, must not stand silent. A bigger reaction against the human rights crimes is required and we have to put pressure on dictators like Lukashenka.

Overview: Belarus

The head of an unregistered opposition group, Mikhail Pashkevich of Tell the Truth, told the BBC that the election results had been determined in advance, saying that ‘There are no elections in Belarus now, only something like a farce, a play that is named election but is not an election.’ Seeking support for the election boycott, opposition leaders called on voters to do something else - go fishing, visit relatives, pick mushrooms or make soup - rather than vote. Anatoly Lebedko, leader of the United Civic Party commented that ‘This is our reaction to the pseudo-elections for the fake parliament.’ Belarus has not held an election considered free and fair by Western observers since Mr Lukashenko came to power in 1994.
