Olga Kovalkova, a member of the Coordination Council Presidium, met with Julie Fisher, the US Ambassador to Belarus. Olga and Julie discussed the Constitutional Court’s efforts to organize negotiations to overcome the crisis, pressure on civil society in Belarus, the state of political prisoners, and efforts to release them.
“The presence of a political crisis is recognized both within the country and by international partners,” Olga Kovalkova commented. – Repressions and pressure only aggravate it. It is necessary to return to the country the rule of law and ensure the protection of the constitutional rights of citizens. This can be done through negotiations, the Coordination Council is currently working on proposals on the format and agenda of which.
Julie Fisher assured that the United States will continue to support the Belarusian people in their struggle for a peaceful and free country. We paid special attention to the release of political prisoners, which will be an important step towards overcoming the political crisis.
