Текущая официальная позиция Евросоюза

Eвросоюз официально не признал результаты выборов в Беларуси. Соответствующее заявление было выпущено по итогам заседания Европейского совета 19 августа.

As the elections in Belarus were neither free nor fair, and did not meet international standards, the EU does not recognise the results presented by the Belarus authorities. 

Leaders condemned the violence against peaceful protesters. The EU expects a complete and transparent investigation into all alleged abuses. They affirmed that civil society and opposition actors must be protected from arbitrary arrests and violence.

The EU will shortly impose sanctions on a substantial number of individuals responsible for violence, repression, and election fraud.

The EU fully supports proposals within the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe) for dialogue in Belarus, and is ready to provide assistance to further them.

The people of Belarus need to know that the EU stands by them firmly, and that those responsible for human rights violations and for violence will be sanctioned.

The elections in #Belarus were neither free nor fair. Violence against peaceful protesters was shocking and has to be condemned. Those responsible must be held to account. The EU has started work on sanctions.

Council of Europe Secretary General Marija Pejčinović Burić has made the following statement with regard to Belarus

“The situation in Belarus is of ongoing concern. Although Belarus is not a member state of the Council of Europe, we have cooperated in several areas and Belarus is party to a number of our conventions.

“I therefore call on the Belarusian authorities to guarantee freedom of assembly and freedom of expression, and to refrain from detaining peaceful demonstrators as well as from any kind of ill-treatment of protesters.

“Belarus needs to fully engage with civil society and this needs to start without delay.

“The Council of Europe and its expert bodies are ready to engage with Belarus to support the necessary reform process.”

I call on President Lukashenko to stop the violence and immediately release those who have been detained. The people of #Belarus have a right to protest. The use of brutal force by the state authorities should have consequences according to international law.

Светлана Тихановская призвала европейских лидеров поддержать выбор беларуского народа

Достопочтенные лидеры Европы 

Вторую неделю подряд мой народ мирно борется за свое конституционное право выбирать своих лидеров. Выборы 9-ого августа не были ни честными, ни прозрачными. Их результаты были сфальсифицированными. Люди, вышедшие защищать свои голоса на улицы городов по всей Беларуси, были жестоко избиты, лишены свободы, подвергнуты пыткам режимом, судорожно цепляющимся за власть. Сотни раненых, по меньшей мере два человека лишились жизни. Это происходит прямо сейчас в центре Европы.

Я призываю вас не признавать эти сфальсифицированные выборы. Лукашенко потерял всякую легитимность в глазах нашего народа и всего мира. 

С целью способствовать мирной передаче власти, я инициировала создание Национального координационного совета Беларуси. Он возглавит процесс мирной передачи власти посредством диалога. Он немедленно объявит новые честные и демократические выборы президента с участием международных наблюдателей.

Уважаемые главы государств Европы, я призываю вас поддержать пробуждение Беларуси. Я призываю все страны уважать принципы международного права. Я призываю уважать суверенитет Республики Беларусь и выбор беларуского народа.

Honorable leaders of Europe

For the second week in a row, my nation is fighting peacefully for its constitutional right to elect its leaders. The August 9th elections were neither fair nor transparent. The results were falsified. People, who went out to defend their vote in the streets of their cities all across Belarus, were brutally beaten, imprisoned, and tortured by the regime desperately clinging onto power. Hundreds were injured, at least two people lost their lives. This is taking place right now in the middle of Europe.

I call on you not to recognize these fraudulent elections. 

Mr. Lukashenko has lost all legitimacy in the eyes of our nation and the world. In order to facilitate a peaceful transition of power in my country, I have initiated the National Coordination Council of Belarus. It will lead the process of peaceful transition of power via dialogue. It will immediately call for a new fair and democratic Presidential election with international supervision. 

Honorable leaders of Europe, I call on you to support the Awakening of Belarus. I call on all countries to respect the principles of international law. I call to respect the sovereignty of Belarus and the choice of Belarusian people.
