Ex-candidate Tsiareshchanka on his poisoning: it was an assassination attempt
Viktar Tsiareshchanka, who was not registered as a presidential candidate presented new arguments in support of the claim he was poisoned.
Tsiareshchanka stated that he was shocked and disappointed by everything what happened to his campaign headquarters. He added that he didn’t trust Belarusian doctors who claimed he just had allergy.
Foreign doctors found 131 symptoms that Tsiareshchanka was poisoned.
Tsiareshchanka also said that one of the versions of his poisoning might be related to the phone call by ex-head of Uladzimir Niakliajeu’s campaign headquarters Aliaksandr Fiaduta and Mikola Statkevich, ex-political prisoner in which they discussed the possibility to name Tsiareshanka as the oppositional candidate. Statkevich later called Tsiareshchanka and apologized for mentioning him in the phone call to Fiaduta.
The Russian side is grateful to Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko for his decision to go to Russia as the visit after the presidential election, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Belarus Alexander Surikov said in an interview with the STV channel, BelTA has learned.
“We are grateful for this decision,” the Ambassador said.
