President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko intends to make an urgent appeal to the people in the near future. This was initially reported by the radio station “Kommersant FM” with reference to the press secretary of the head of state Natalia Eismont.
Later, the radio station reported that information about Lukashenka’s imminent appeal had been received not from Eismont, but from the Diletant Telegram channel. “There is no official confirmation of this information yet,” it says on Twitter radio station.
RBC turned to the press service of the presidential administration of Belarus for a comment.
Earlier, the head of the Council of the Republic (the upper chamber of the Belarusian parliament) Natalya Kochanova said that Lukashenka heard the opinion of labor collectives and instructed to investigate the facts of detention of citizens in the past few days. “Already on the evening of today, more than a thousand people have been released under the obligation not to participate in unauthorized events, and the minors have been handed over to their parents on receipt,” quotes Kochanov agency BelTA ..
