Yesterday, group of supporters of Belarussian movement for freedom, gathered near Belarussian Embassy in Kiev. Within the bounds of meeting, ‘elections of president Lukashenko’ took place.
Everybody were able to vote for Lukashenko by putting into ballot-box as many voting-papers as he or she wanted.
Voting-papers were created by the best-of-the-best from Belarussian Central Election Committee(BCEC).
“We have had formal reasons to cancel registration of those candidates. However we’ve decided to give our electives opportunity to use their right to choose”, – said chairman of BCEC, Lidia Ermoshina.
(here is an example of voting-paper)
Writtings oppose to checkboxes says following
(checked one): I support regime of Alyaksandr Lukashenko
(second one): Please arrest my entire family
Afterwards, total votes were counted.
Wow! 183% for A. Lukashenko!
There was poll watcher from СIS(Сommonwealth of Independant States). Let us hear what he has to say:
“We believe that elections was transparent, liberal and legitimate”
“Ad honorem” elections concert of belarussian pop music was given near Belarussian Embassy.
Man with video camera walked out of the embassy towards us. He looked like home video amauter. We tried to take a picture of him, but he was turning away and trying to sneak and talk to police. Policemens were just smiling. Looks like the guy get countries mixed up
After voting we headed to Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
Near ministry we read demand to announce Lukashenko as “persona non grata” in Ukraine, and to sound position of Ukraine regarding recent events firmly. Ballot-boxes were left at the front doors, so ministry empoyees will have a chance to vote as well.
After solemn signing of national anthem of Ukraine, all participants went home with firm intention to gather again.
