Today, the Conference of Presidents of the European Parliament awarded the 2020 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought to the Belarusian opposition*, including the brave women of Belarus led by Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, Maria Kalesnikava and Veranika Tsapkala.

For the Socialists and Democrats, who proposed their candidacy, this is a clear sign of the European Parliament’s solidarity with the people of Belarus who are peacefully protesting for freedom and democracy in their country. We hope that this award will encourage and help protect them from the regime’s unprecedented violence while increasing international pressure on Lukashenka to finally step down.
