"So listen to Nova now, today on Apple podcasts, spotify stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts. I'm Marco Werman misses the world authorities in Belarus are stepping up their efforts to crackdown on protests. It's been a month now since protesters began demanding the ouster of longtime President Alexander Lukashenko they say last month's election was rigged and look a Shankar needs to go the movement has been led by people like Maria Kolesnikova. Kolesnikova a few weeks ago in front of a truck manufacturing plant. In Belarus, his capital today witnesses immense say she was snatched off the street by unidentified masked men than thrown into a minibus and driven away. Police have denied detaining Maria Kolesnikova. It is the latest incident in a month that has redefined Belarus we're joined now by Lena's Linkevicius. He's the Lithuanian minister. Of Foreign Affairs and he's been one of the most vocal world leaders speaking up against Alexander Lukashenka. So you tweeted today Mr Foreign Minister saying that Kolesnikov abduction is a Stalinist nkvd method. So what do you think this kidnapping means for the opposition movement? Yeah I believe it's not just for position to everyone because the outgoing authorities they changed tactics instead of massive but -ality the. Doing that ad hoc and case by case, and trying to intimidate first of all members of nation console. because. This council. They need to read kind of platform for democratic process and new elections. I. Believe it's really not too much, and now we can see that we just maybe few members maybe two to be precise. In in three them. So to say, and others are either left the country temporarily the all the are they were forced to flee. Atlanta Austria. Or some something has it's now now with Kolesnikov we definitely. See that the signal quite clear that the position must come on. Otherwise, they will be put into the custody and that's the plan. So to countdown situation, that's always the case. Before many times and I'll try to repeat. Still, you mentioned Svetlana Tikhonov Skyer. She was the opposition candidate to who presented her candidacy against Alexander Lukashenko. She's now in refuge in your country what she threatened by Belorussian authorities. Yes. Indeed. She was blackmailed and we tried to reach her and she was still in Belarus when she visited select committee and the submitting kind of appeal to recount the votes and when West she was also shows disappeared and then we understood that it was she was. Provided, it's not too many options. One option was to free the country. Other option was maybe not related with the freedom and. Since she already had Lithuanian national visa same as many others who potentially could be exposed to this danger. So the she decided to go to Dana and. Authorities didn't prevent. That's even helped how we've and she she in Lithuania. So the only. kind of assistance VILOCCI is. Refused or security, and she's acting on their own making statements now, communicating much more than at the beginning and meeting critters traveling. Kept it. Have you been able to speak with her yourself? Yeah. I talked to at the beginning she was devastated guys say even depressed. She, she industry was not able even to say anything because we have to understand. Still in custody and What kind of treatment is the kind of ongoing and? I'm afraid she's really blackmailed. So it's been four weeks of protests now Belarus Mister Minister you've been very vocal throughout from your position in Lithuania what is at stake for? Belarus. Right now like how big is the concern of those sponsors in Russia kind of coming in two minutes helping straighten things out. Yeah. Now it's kind of course you know everybody waiting bit what will happen next. So people on the streets are still peaceful massive movements every weekend. Enormous number of people which never before and they are not scared. It's surprising. But by the way because despite the intimidation torturing and humiliations, they still very active and this is a very strong argument and be a little outgoing in cawthorn is still believe they can save time. Inventing. Some mechanisms. Reform trying to calm down intimidate the people and sponsors in. Moscow. Also, they believe that I don't know they probably have many options and always options are bad for them but they decided to choose to this support of this compromise leadership which I believe quieter mental for themselves as well. So now this this situation and therefore we need really to come up with the very clear international message to message of support to the people of Buehler's message, your moral support but also to. Help, these victims of repressions to find the way how to help them pretty media civil society also message to the outgoing leadership that they are definitely outgoing and their mandate expired. It's also very important to note if they will try to pretend that the elected, it's not true. And also message to Russia they must refrain from meddling into domestic of billers because. Unfortunately sadly, I would predict that. Will speed up this so-called integration process. Of Union of two states and. Not much will remain from the event and independence of Belarus. You're just to the north of Belarus in Lithuania does Lithuania worry about Russian aggression inside its own borders? Not Now in all, we definitely worrying about instability in the neighborhood. And we are member of very serious and important of innovations like Nathan, European Union and by the way all these. Orix about external threats the. Is Fake. And that was the night many times by NATO leaders others. So we can repeat it's definitely groundless. So maybe they would like to prove skulls for for assistance from Russia, even military assistance. But there's no reason the military moral legal reasons for that the system's but since it's publicly discussed so this is kind of dangerous. Who can deny that specifically so now we're looking at that very carefully we are vigilant and. This instability greats grind of. Concern. So that's something we should look at very seriously carefully. So. Our situation is different but those who are more vulnerable in the neighborhood's really suffering. So, one final question the US has been parsing careful responses on the situation in Belarus a few statements here and there from Secretary Pompeii on the importance of respecting democracy but nothing from trump do you have a message for US leadership in President Trump in particular when it comes to their position? Now. Frank. US will decide themselves what they have to stay on when and how. But definitely we all expect leadership are invited states whatever happens in the world. Especially, we would like to see this leadership in the area, the rights freedom, and that's something couldn't. Believe will take place. So I, hope it will happen. It's happening know the steep CBS Deputy Secretary of State's visited Belarus and also provided very clear messages. So the strong voice consistent position by United, states could also influence the situation. Lena's Linkevicius is the minister, of foreign, affairs for Lithuania. Thank you very much for your time today. Appreciate. Thanks every morning..
