Conditions for Svetlana Tikhanovskaya's visit to Ukraine were named in Kiev

Conditions for Svetlana Tikhanovskaya's visit to Ukraine were named in Kiev
Conditions for a meeting with the leader of the Belarusian opposition Svetlana Tikhanovskaya were set in Ukraine. As Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said, before visiting Kiev, Tikhanovskaya should decide on the issue of Crimea's ownership.

In a radio interview “new time” Kuleba stated, that the ex-presidential candidate of Belarus Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, before visiting Ukraine, should finally decide on the ownership of Crimea, since the very first question from Ukrainian journalists will be exactly this. If the answer is incorrect, Tikhanovskaya may significantly weaken her position in Ukraine.

(…) the first question from journalists during a visit to Ukraine for a politician will be: Whose Crimea? And any vague answer will play against Mrs. Tikhanovskaya herself
– stressed the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

Besides, Tikhanovskaya must understand, that for the cooperation of the Belarusian opposition with the Ukrainian government, she shouldn't support “Russian aggression against Ukraine”.

According to Kuleba, setting such conditions, cares more about her, rather than about myself.

Earlier, Tikhanovskaya refused to answer the question of whether, which country does Crimea belong to, but at the beginning of November she stated, that legally, on the basis of international law, the peninsula belongs to Ukraine.
