The head of the CEC of Belarus Lidia Yermoshina has confirmed that Svetlana Tikhanovski, to run for President, has recorded a video message to supporters in her office.

"It's my couch. She wrote this appeal without me," said the Chairman of the electoral Commission in an interview with the Belarusian edition of Komsomolskaya Pravda.

Yarmoshyna noted that Tikhanovski brought a complaint to the CEC in the presence of journalists, after which she was invited to the office, because it wanted to meet the "two high-ranking officials" of law enforcement.

"I introduced them, she stayed with a lawyer along with them. And I went," — said the CEC head.

Tuesday Tikhanovski recorded a video message in which he asked his supporters not to go to the area, to exercise prudence and to comply with the law. On the same day it became known that she had gone to Lithuania.

According to the Trustee Tikhanovski Olga Kovalkova, the candidate had no choice but to leave Belarus. Some colleagues Tikhanovski admitted that it could have an impact "through her husband", who is now in custody.
