Statement of the Democratic Forces Operational Headquarters

"To do everything possible to stop this war and defend independence"

Today the territory of Belarus was used by Russia for military aggression against Ukraine. This means that the Constitution of the country has been violated again.

Lukashenko jeopardizes the lives of our citizens, so we must act and not put the future of our country in the wrong hands.

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya said that she takes responsibility for the defense of independence and national interests of the Republic of Belarus and forms a transitional cabinet as a national authority. The Operational Headquarters of Democratic Forces supports her decision as the National Leader, representative of the Belarusian people, elected by the majority in the 2020 elections.

In this regard, we call on all citizens of our country to share this responsibility and do everything possible to stop this war and protect the independence of the Republic of Belarus.

The deceitful Lukashenko regime is trying to pass off war as peace, trying to hold an illegal "referendum" and change the Basic Law of the country, which has been violated more than once.

Holding a "referendum" in conditions of war is unacceptable. But we consider February 27, the main day of voting, as an opportunity to express our protest against the regime, which has involved Belarus in the military conflict.

It is extremely important that each and every one of us can convey to our colleagues, friends and relatives the monstrous essence of what is happening. Show solidarity, help each other and discuss together what steps we can take to protect our families, to protect the independence of Belarus in order to be better prepared for scenarios that seemed impossible yesterday.
