British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised to triple financial support for the opposition forces to the regime of Alexander Lukashenko in Belarus. This was reported on the website of the British government following the meeting of the head of the British cabinet with the leader of the Belarusian opposition Svetlana Tikhanovskaya in London.
“The Prime Minister outlined the steps taken by the UK to bring the regime to justice, including the imposition of sanctions against Lukashenka himself. He stressed the UK's commitment to the Belarusian people, in particular by tripling our financial support to Belarusian civil society this year, ”the UK government said in a statement.
Tikhanovskaya commented on the death of the Belarusian activist Vitaly Shishov: “I would say that this is a crime, but I can’t say anything without the results of the investigation. Everyone in Belarus and everyone in exile should take care of their safety, because we see that the regime, if it wants to do something, will stop at nothing to find you. ”
