The National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum organized a protest at the Belarus Embassy in Chișinău, in solidarity with the Belarusian National Platform against the results of the August 9, 2020, presidential elections.

On August 13, the National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum organized a protest at the Belarus Embassy in Chișinău, in solidarity with the people protesting in Belarus against the results of the presidential elections from August 9 in Belarus.

“We are here to express our solidarity with Belarus. We hope that the law enforcement agencies will fairly investigate all actions and the whole situation,” mentioned one of the organizers.

The organizers have made a statement on the situation in Belarus and say they will send it to representatives of the Belarusian Embassy in Chișinău.

After a third night of violent retaliation by security forces against protesters, who are challenging President Alexander Lukashenko’s victory in the last presidential election, state media in Minsk reported that several protesters were arrested.

Immediately after the results of the official exit poll were announced, the wave of protests in Belarus started. According to the data presented, Lukashenko, who has been in power since 1994, would have accumulated 79.7 percent, while the opposition candidate, Svetlana Tikhanovsky, was quoted with only 6.8 percent. The whole campaign was full of violations, and three representatives of the opposition were taken out of the race and arrested.

On election day, several voters and journalists reported other irregularities. Huge queues formed at many polling stations, but people were only allowed access to polling stations in small groups as an anti-COVID measure19. Several ballots were also reported, which had already ticked the option under Lukashenko, but the police did not intervene at the request of a voter.
