Joint appeal of the Democratic Forces
On October 26, the leaders of the democratic forces of Belarus sent a letter to the leadership of the EU, the EU member states and the leadership of COVAX with an appeal to urgently provide assistance to Belarus in the amount of at least a million doses of vaccines. Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, Head of the NAM Pavel Latushka, member of the CC Presidium Olga Kovalkova, CC representative for political prisoners Tatyana Khomich, Head of the Cabinet of Representatives Valery Kovalevsky, representative of the Medical Solidarity Fund Andrei Tkachev appealed to Belarusians:
"Back in the spring we worked with the European Commission and COVAX to bring vaccines to Belarus. We were looking for ways to do this — through the UN, religious organizations. But then these decisions remained unfulfilled — and we see the consequences now.
The situation continues to worsen. Therefore, for the sake of the health of Belarusians, it is necessary to unite efforts to accept the help of our neighbors and the international community.
Today, on behalf of all democratic forces, we sent a letter to the EU leadership, the EU member states and the COVAX leadership. We urge to urgently provide assistance to Belarus in the amount of at least one million doses of vaccines. We are not "throwing an idea". We offer a tool that will help a million of Belarusian people. All that is required from the Ministry of Health is to agree.
We do this because for us a pandemic is not politics, it is the health and lives of people.
And now our task and responsibility is to take care of our health and the health of our loved ones; help doctors who have been heroically fighting the pandemic for a year and a half, help us.
• Wear masks.
• Get the vaccine that is currently available.
• Avoid public places and events and stay at home whenever possible.
Take care of yourself. Your families need you, your country needs you, we all need you."
