The Czech Republic decided to adopt a state program to support the Belarusian and Russian opposition


The government of the Czech Republic was invited to consider the draft of a special program “Civil Society” to support opposition-minded citizens of Russia and Belarus. Today, May 18, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic Jan Lipavsky addressed the Czech Cabinet with a relevant document.

“These will be the most significant representatives of civil society, such as journalists and scientists,” he said.

According to him, the program assumes that conditions will be created for the “persecuted” Russians and Belarusians in the Czech Republic to continue their activities. At the same time, the program will have certain restrictions, and only a certain group of people will be able to use it. Jan Lipavsky did not provide other details of the proposal, saying that he could not do this for security reasons.

Recall that after the start of the cleansing of Belarus from radical elements, many activists and leaders of the local opposition left the republic. A significant part of them settled in the Czech Republic, where favorable conditions were created for them. The Czech government strongly supports the activities of the Belarusian opposition, which for the most part is represented by Russophobes and nationalists.
