She stated that “today the regime has shown the Belarusians again that violence is the only thing it is capable of”.

“But detonating stun grenades in a crowd of people and under the windows of maternity hospitals is not power,” Tikhanovskaya said.

She noted that "the regime is not ready to speak the truth, be responsible for its words and fulfill the demands of the people."

“This means that this regime is not worthy of the Belarusian people.

This means that this regime is losing power.

Therefore, tomorrow, October 26, a nationwide strike will begin, ”she said.

Earlier it became known that a march of supporters of the Belarusian opposition is taking place in Minsk; it started on Freedom Square in the city center.

The official representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus Olga Chemodanova said that "law enforcement agencies used special means against the protesters near the Central District Department of Internal Affairs on Orlovskaya Street to suppress illegal actions."

It was also reported that Tikhanovskaya, during a meeting in Denmark with representatives of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, said that new presidential elections should be scheduled in the republic by the end of this year.
