Belarus: Russia puts opposition's Tikhanovskaya on wanted list

07/10/2020 - 19:52

Russia has put Belarus opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya on its wanted list on "a criminal charge", Russia's interior ministry says according to bbc.com.

Ms Tikhanovskaya stood against long-term President Alexander Lukashenko in August's disputed election, which was widely seen as fraudulent.

However Russia's President Vladimir Putin is backing Mr Lukashenko.

The opposition says Mr Lukashenko must quit. But he says they are Western "puppets" trying to overthrow him.

Ms Tikhanovskaya has been visiting Berlin to discuss the crisis with Chancellor Angela Merkel and other German officials.

EU sanctions now target 40 Belarus officials, but not Mr Lukashenko himself.
