Stop the cockroach! Freedom to the hero!
They arrested Siarhei Tsikhanouski in Hrodna. Earlier, I would write that he is a famous Belarusian blogger, but now I am saying that he is the people’s hero, who returned the hope for changes to Belarusians.
Siarhei was arrested as a result of a primitive provocation, conducted by three KGB’s bold hussies (please excuse my language, but I cannot call these instigators women). The traditional legal action for the collection of signatures for the nomination of Tsikhanouski’s wife Sviatlana as a presidential contender (the authorities refused to register Siarhei’s nomination group) was going peacefully, in a regular, law-abiding way. Until a company of barnstormers from the KGB-MIA theatre literally flew at Siarhei, having staged a talentless show.
Thousands of people have come out to the streets of the Belarusian cities for many days to sign for Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, and thus establish their absolute disagreement with what is happening in Belarus, and express their protests against the sickening Lukashenka regime.
The coward ex-director of a collective farm could not endure this, and, having slandered Tsikhanouski publicly, gave a personal order to conduct this provocation.
What a pitiful fate the dictator has! He probably dreamed of fame of some other nature. However, he drove the country and the people to such a state that Belarusians have no other associations with him but a cockroach.
The slogan “Stop the Cockroach!” has become incredibly popular in Belarus, and people bring slippers to the signature-collection pickets all over the country, to smash the annoying insect.
The time of this scarecrow has long gone. This is obvious. But we have to learn how to defend our heroes. And Siarhei Tsikhanouski is a Belarusian hero, struggling for all of us.
I hope presidential contenders will not stay aside. If you remain silent - you may be next. Without Tsikhanouski, this is not election anyway.
Our common freedom and victory are in our hands. Lukashenka is a nobody, his rating is 1%.
And we will be strong, we will win, if we are together.
