If October Square is occupied by armed forces, armoured troop-carriers and the police on December 19, the presidential candidates will not send people to fight tanks.
Uladzimir Nyaklyayeu claimed it at a joint press conference with Andrei Sannikau answering Euroradio’s question about their plans in such a situation.
Uladzimir Nyaklyayeu: “I went out for town and saw it: armoured troop-carries and regiments are being gathered there. If they circle the square to prevent people from entering it to express their protest, we will not send people to fight armoured troop-carriers and armed forces – we are not crazy. But we will consider it to be a military operation, the use of force to oppose the people’s will. We will claim and demonstrate it”.
At the same time, the candidates urged people to come to October Square at 8 p.m. on December 19 again, not to be scared by threats and to defy provocations.
