The unregistered candidate for the post of the head of Belarus Valery Tsepkalo said that the opposition of the republic will create a “Committee of State Salvation”, reports RIA Novosti on August 11.

“We will now create our own State Salvation Committee. We will include all interested people there. The main goals remain the same as they were, which were agreed with the headquarters of Tikhanovskaya when they united, “Tsepkalo said.

He said that the opposition, “understanding Svetlana’s situation,” would unite “not around the leader, but around principles.”

Tsepkalo noted that while the committee has no program and no territorial center, communication takes place remotely.

On the eve of Tsepkalo’s wife Veronika announced that the inhabitants of Belarus want to see the country renewed. She told reporters about this after the announcement of the first exit polls at the elections of the Belarusian leader, according to which the current President Alexander Lukashenko took the leading position.

On July 24, Tsepkalo announced the creation of the National Unity Committee, to which he intended to invite cultural, scientific, artistic, and athletic figures to show that “they really are with the people, and not with this government, which, by and large, has already compromised itself.” …

By that time, he had already been denied registration as a candidate for the presidency of the country due to the absence of illegally obtained income in the declaration. Its headquarters and the headquarters of another candidate excluded from the lists, Viktor Babariko, have merged with the headquarters of the candidate for the presidency of Belarus Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

The presidential elections in Belarus were held on August 9. According to the CEC, Alexander Lukashenko won 80.08% of the vote, his rival Svetlana Tikhanovskaya – 10.09%. The third place was taken by the “candidate against all”. The turnout in the elections was 84%.

On the evening of the same day, tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Minsk and other cities of the republic. The security forces used rubber bullets, water cannons and stun grenades against them.
