Member of the Organizing Committee of the party "Belarusian movement" Viktor Ivashkevich, commented, "Freedom," the participants of today's verdicts events of December 19, along with former candidate Andrei Sannikov:
"No one thought, that power will behave otherwise. And in another case. In addition to the resentment and regret to act for their release. They will be released only when they will be replaced by those who gave the order to put them here. And it should be realized. And of course, the economic difficulties, the expression of concern by the EU — it does not solve the issue. Anyone who does not agree with this decision, must now actively work to join the opposition calling for the fall to go to the streets to demand the release of Belarus political prisoners. While this is not, as long as these requirements will not release a massive, public nature inside Belarus, cry, regret and express indignation is meaningless. "
