- The special thing about this particular election is the enormous mobilization in the country. That there are so many who support Svetlana Tichanovskaya. It feels in the air that people want a change.

Julia Lapitskii also says that Tichanovskaya has also managed to awaken previously dormant parts of the country. 

- Even in small towns, thousands of people came to listen to Tichanovskaya, and in these small towns there is usually no form of political activity.

- And in Minsk, she gathered 63,000 people, something not seen since 2010. And then it was about people who were there to protest the election, not to support any individual candidate.
