"And this is news are The president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko is clearly hoping that by neutralizing members of the opposition Coordination Council he could bring to an end the mass demonstrations calling for him. To stand down. Tens of thousands of people have been taking to the streets since the disputed elections in August, which the opposition say were rigged. The main opposition candidate, Svetlana Ticking off sky Fled the country of her own safety. Shortly after the pole councilmember Maxim's Nak was taken away by masked men on Wednesday. Maria Callas Nick over is in detention after resisting deportation. And says she was threatened with death while Nobel Prize winning writer Svetlana Alexievich still at Liberty says she's being harassed in her own home for the latest time, joined on the line by Sarah Rainsford in neighboring Russia on DH. Tell us more Sarah about Maria Callas Nick over. She's been talking about that death threat and what she intends to do about her forcible deportation. Well, she was, of course, talking from custody. She's in a detention center, now facing charges off calling for a coup in Belarus is a very serious charge with a five year potential prison sentence, but In a statement that she wrote and submitted via her lawyer. She's essentially calling on the investigative committee in Belarus to open a case against those she say, detect, she says, detained her illegally. Now she's referring The fact that he was bundled into a minivan on the streets of Minsk on Monday and then disappeared essentially for a couple of days until we heard that she had been taken to the border with Ukraine, where she very dramatically ripped up her passport to refuse to be deported. But in her statement, she is saying that what led up to that was a couple of days. Of threats of very coercive behavior by her captors. She says It was an illegal detention. She says she was told that she would be forced to leave the country alive or in pieces when eventually the interrogators and her captors. Realized recognized that she wasn't going to be better ways voluntarily. That's when Maria Kalashnikov for says that she was driven to the border with a bag over her head, and eventually after she resisted deportation. She ended up back in custody, as I say, facing now criminal charges herself. And any word on Max seems intact. Well again, he's facing the same charge. He is in custody in Minsk as well, the latest off the seven members of the presidium off the Coordination Council. So the top body of the large Coordination council set up by the opposition in galleries to oversee the transfer of power, who was detained and is now in custody. So there's only one person left from that original seven that is set on Alexi Rich, the Noble Prize winning author. Who's in her seventies and is now in her flat in Minsk being protected by journalists and diplomats, who she called upon yesterday to come and and set up a protective cordon, essentially because, she said, unknown men were knocking at her door and she been receiving threatening phone calls, and she was afraid of being detained two. But obviously Alison Lukashenko is now trying to decapitate. Theon opposition movement in Belarus by removing all of its key figures, But I think you know the momentum remains on the streets. And those street protests have always been organized Fire social media on rather more spontaneous than actually being called for by opposition leaders, particularly so I think, perhaps in trying to decapitate the movement, he won't succeed in preventing people coming out onto the streets. Yes, Ambassadors in Missem Alexandrovich is flat, perhaps the strongest step so far we've seen from you countries since the presidential election a month ago. What else and all they considering. Well, there's talk of sanctions. Some you countries are pushing for sanctions. Others have bean more wary. Eso at the moment, it's bean really support from the country's closest to Belarus, In particular Poland, which is now set up a kind of ah sort of government in exile for for the opposition, where they've given a building in Warsaw to Atlanta to Oscar And to her team to work out ofthe so efforts by Poland right on Valerie says border But as us for the whole you a za body than moves towards potential sanctions against officials in Valerie's. Well, that's being pretty slow to materialize ceremony Thanks that was the BBC's Sarah Rainsford in Moscow..
