Belarus opposition says fate of country, Ukraine intertwined | Politics

UNITED NATIONS (AP) – The fates of Belarus and Ukraine are “intertwined” and both countries must fight together to ensure their existence because Russia does not see them as independent sovereign states, Belarus’ opposition leader said on Friday.

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, who fled to Lithuania after Russian ally Alexander Lukashenko claimed victory in the disputed August 2020 election that many believed she had won, said in an interview with The Associated Press that “it was without free Ukraine will not give free Belarus”.
