Zmitser Khvedaruk: We shall hold a real European March


A youth organization Young Front supports holding European march in autumn this year. Young Front, which supports European democratic values, would take to the streets this autumn definitely. We shall hold a real European March. Once again Belarus would say that its place is in Europe. Recently we feel a great support of European countries, and politicians from Europe are visiting our celebrations more and more often. We should make obvious once again our ability and readiness to become a part of a united democratic Europe, told the leader of Young Front Zmitser Fedaruk in an interview to Charter97 press-center.

In connection with the Congress of the democratic forces held last week, the young leader has also noted that Young Front backs open struggle with the dictatorship.

We are against empty statements, against spending time on sessions of pre-election headquarters. Democrats have a great support of the population, and during mass protest rallies they should demonstrate this support to the regime. That is why we support For Freedom! movement and Alyaksandr Milinkevich. This politician has been recognized all over Europe, every citizen of Belarus, from Maloe Sitna to Chernobyl zone, knows him. We shall support him in the future, the leader of Young Front said.

However, Young Front does not give up on the idea of a dialogue with the regime. After political prisoners Mikola Statkevich and Paval Sevyarynets were released, after a mild sentence in Young Front case, we do not refuse talks with the authorities are possible, Zmitser Fedaruk said.
