Members of the Committee for Free Belarus express their indignation with manipulation and falsification of the results of the referendum about the amendment of the Constitution as well as of the Parliamentary election of Belarus. Factual absence of representatives of opposition in election commissions, intense state propaganda and deprival of the possibility to lead pre-electoral agitation, brutal pressurization of students, military servants and other groups of electors, exclusion of a number of well-known oppositional politicians are only several examples witnessing that Aliaksandr Lukashenka’s regime openly tramples all democratic principles.
