3:37 am
has worsened since president alexander lucas shanker was reelected. last august, thousands of protesters were arrested, including several linked to svetlana, t for nob sky as campaign. she fled to neighboring lithuania and has been drumming up international pressure. lucas shanker, to step down in may. a ryan in flight, heading into lithuania, was forcibly diverted to minced where police detained an opposition journalist on board romano pro to save, which is accused of being volved in so called terrorist activity. and last month bell, russian police rated the offices of 14 rights groups. non governmental organizations and independent media outlets. ah, well, let's bring in our guess. now. joining us from warsaw is anna toll co tower international relations manager of the bell. russian sports solidarity foundation. the organization helps athletes who faced repercussions for expressing political views
3:38 am
in brussels. we have a cat, a lantern chief executive of the center for european policy studies, and also in war. so valerie sep carlo bell, russian opposition, leader and former presidential candidate a warm welcome to all of you. so anatole, if i could start with you then 1st because i know that you have spoken to christina tim and sky. so just fill us in. first of all, what has she told you about all this? i truly and now she's okay. now now she's a bullish embassy in your and she's getting better after all this. ready shocking events, which turned out all the sudden for her from senor and the very simple mistake of team officials who failed
3:39 am
to ensure the doping distant program for her for the team members of the mix. well, they're really even for extra $400.00 me this women they tried to persuade christian to participate in this event about. it's not her discipline, there was no any politics or the beginning of the story. she just refused for reasonable grounds. she won't twist health and live for somebody's mistakes and all the sudden the political decision was taken a means to grip her and say, come back to means kill against her. will she informed about such a situation? she managed home builders and supposed to own vision validates of carlo. what's,
3:40 am
what's likely, what do you fear is likely to happen to her family as, as a result, as well as the real estate is in your grade. i just wanted to say that he is say, now is in your grade. however, it would be, we know the story about the bodies just so he was found dead just several hours ago. he was hang in the forest. i key, if so most probably it was also the results of their actions of bella russo special forces i or somebody who reads with in your grade. so i don't think that somehow they can influence their parents. however, we had the news that they already approached their parents probably trying to
3:41 am
persuade and therefore it showed them back to men's guy. you know, that they captured several people's and they started to speak on camera that deborah is fine. the re jim is good. we have to worry about in bill or was that happened when lucas end? because regina hijacked the knack raft and they brought them on a beach to prison and she started to speak what they wanted. and the same thing happened with one of our athletes, m. m i champion and also to be in their hands and they are old. so he also started to speak what they want from him to to talk about. so, you know, i think that the re, jim ones now the same christina would be started to speak about good things about them, but nobody trust them. and or, and what i expect i expect,
3:42 am
but most probably the decision will be taken out. the national olympic committee from the international committee and the billing team will continue to participate on the neutral fat blacks in this olympics carolina, given what bella bruce has done to previous dissenters to this surprise, you at all? no, no, no, no. let's build the in line to get the patients or what this look. sure, go, government is doing. i mean, it's even sometimes look shank or has government there even sometimes ahead of the other states like for example, at home state, they have their own with love the neighboring country. and they called back that i'm back there just because a lot embassy over there have put on a lack of the position and they go back the investor. i mean, the, you was late to react to bed and it's only, and it's monday, part of may say after the intersection of the lady from athens right now to
3:43 am
you and both even harder sanctions. but we have, are you going to be published about a month ago that you could do much more and for example, recall it and just pretty different, i think relations. and finally with the shop. i think that part of things we can do, for example, extending group of people to which sanctions apply at the moment. that's about 166 persons. you could say that there's a lot and their assets are frozen. for example, these people have money on bank accounts and you don't be countries or proven, but i think we can do much more than that to be much more restrictive and to be much more forceful against the scope and talk and talk about what this has has someone else told you and your organization about how long term plans right now, what she plans to do from here actually, tomorrow she comes to worse. so our and or we're planning to arrange a special meeting for her ministry of sports. and to reason the analogous along
3:44 am
the promised to. ready try to meet her requests because she wants to continue close for the career. this is quite possible and we are ready to help to assist with facilitation of the ocean with the polish officials and also polish. and i will see and late fled to the duration. so my invention to. ready come to a safe place to. ready ready re union with your family because her husband also had to leave from the country and because he was afraid of also repressions from this side of therapist and then to start thinking about. busy future plans within her career. she
3:45 am
told us today she has plans for 2 next olympics. so she is quite young and perspective and we would like to help her to assist her to be per bad for about event because the main thing is her played her life and her career mallory to call to what extent has seminar sky as case expose the tactics of the bell russian regime on de luca shanker. well, i have a question, i would say a couple of all the symptoms and you know, just all the lamps line lamps on this junior. we also told that bill a response delegation. they were wise guys and they were looking after sportsmen,
3:46 am
so they didn't allow them to be in contact with. their representatives are the state so they aware people believe that the country would leave us for, for it would be a big thing for the reputation. all the time i was was afraid off and we remember moody who fled in fact, areas believe the soviet geisha and stayed in protest at the time. i think that this is the same symptoms actual enough in us. we are on all the collapse of this regina and when you been sports, ma'am. that's very well. i'm proud of these 3 gym. they want to use what definitely extend
3:47 am
my women decided to stay away from these times. i think it's very, very symptomatic and it's kind of where you won't be very so carolina how should the e you react to this? now? i don't know you, you kind of touched on this a little earlier. and part of the reason i'm asking is because when roman for to say which the opposition journalist was taken off that ryan air flight earlier this year. there was this storm of criticism internationally and the you almost immediately him post economic sanctions on bell roof, but clearly it haven't changed. their behavior has it. so what do they do now? i mean, of course they have the sanctions, but i think they can do much more just to be proactive level. they can do much more . that is not
3:48 am
a thing on the behind i preach this merger. merge of this journalist and ukraine underlines, i mean the secret police b k t b or the secret police. there's possibly, i mean, it's almost everywhere. so as long as we have these diplomatic relations under the cover of diplomats, she could police can be active and all of europe being published before all of whatever i've been doing and are getting like russia is also used to do with politics. so as we are much more forceful, let's say trying to trace what these different, different much so called diplomats are doing into different countries. or you mentally creative or about the collection for the company in question. become be much more parcel and make sure that these things happen anymore or happen less anyway. there's so much parallel between debate and government acts and debate the russian government, for example, has acted in poisoning august opposition, figures and u. k. i mean, what i would do is doing this of the same time. however,
3:49 am
i would warn against too much kind of optimism or hopelessly that these things will have rapid effect. i'm very happy to see that this. i mean, the elected president of better lucia. he kind of sky is received everywhere around the world was by, by last week is know, and probably for me, i remember correctly was an item before she gets good support, but we'll have to company to do this eventually for years to undermine this regime . as soon as we can, but i will take, i think it may not yours because russia is behind and russia strongly supporting or putting somebody supporting the british interview and we've seen and syria. 3 ho, disconcerting around, i mean, indicator, syria, we talked 10 years ago, that would be forced to sit down very soon. but look, going to be out today is again, and it's still there. all right, we'll come come back to some of that in a moment, but i just want to come back to anatole for a moment. it should to the relevant sporting authorities have done more to help the
3:50 am
seminar sky. i mean, this will happen very quickly. and the court of arbitration in sport denied her. her legal bid to, to run in the 200 meters in the olympics earlier this week saying that she didn't have enough evidence to, to make the, make her case for that. what do you, what do you take from from that was there perhaps a reluctance to get involved in, in a political and diplomatic, this dispute a pillar, we saw a good level of engagement of european all in the committee international. it can, we just had to really not so many time to not so much time to response but they interfered immediately just one hour after they. ready have been informed about. ready the case of christmas donaldson, unfortunately, my daughters, the delegation tried to do like a special operations. so the christina was informed that she has to go to. ready
3:51 am
the airport just one hour before she was actually taken from her apartment. so the plan, this action with no time to response was you about the international for those forms or betrayed at home division as they did not dismiss the appeal of the whole staff, they dismissed only one part of the deal, a request for c and the case is still under consideration of the girls and we would like to have a final decision just to point out. ready just to fix a few show that there was a fact why a lation of her rise and that she was eager to participate in this of course. so such a system as we see on the,
3:52 am
on this example should really be working 24 hours 7 days for sure. unfortunately, due to these differences in time and time sheets. and also due to the complexity of the situation. christina was in polio with limited access or communication meals. so there should be some more efficient remedies liberated, taking that into account these case, but what could have been done by the international sport of this was actually done . and we are grateful for their interference and help international and the committee opens the new investigation against the national. and we can go to in this to get fully christine, at the most tech case,
3:53 am
valerie carlo. how would you characterize the current climates in belarus right now? in terms of free speech, has it, has it gotten worse since that disputed election in august 2020 definitely much worse because the political party saw band practically old newspapers, independent newspapers, even local newspapers have been very, very small newspapers that cover the life of some local communities, they also banned practically. there are no angels now in the bill and it's a really very visible crime down from the side of the regime on the civil society. and then i would try to clear the field, you know, that it would be, you know, any attempts for resistance, even peaceful did much space and hold the human race and also not allowed. so
3:54 am
i, the situation with human rights is getting worse and worse that we have now about only think a little fish will recognize political if they need our country and the novel administrative arrest rise in also. so he, you know, just, you know, they were about 40000 people that go through prisons after the presidential elections for 2000. if you can compare with the polish silly daughter most, the largest central, a nice new report to the 2nd world war. they didn't fall and they were about 10000 people. i bought through prisons and poland, 4 times bigger than bill roost. so you can imagine the scale of the terror that bill civil society face is now from decide to the sprint you. but
3:55 am
from another point we are pretty optimistic because one day it will blow up and say, there are no other way, but we will definitely we because you know, just it's impossible now to breathe. but you know, the society cannot leave the same way, and i'm free to call and say, you know, we, on the brink of down to this ridge, you, let's, let's give what's probably going to be the last word on this to cow, lana. do you agree with that sentiment? are you hopeful for the future? and what would you want to see more off from other nations in, in applying pressure on bella? ruth, i'm hopeful as well, but we shouldn't be kind of so i mean, optimistic sense that it will just be a matter of some weeks. no, it can take some time, but we have to be extremely result. very clear. that's what we do and what we
3:56 am
support, and i think this is not only to get for or you can just hold the case for all the european country for all the confusion that we have to be on in the world as a whole. have to be very supportive of the electorate, but essentially candidate this straight line up the final anyway, she's received all over the world traveling all over. but that's we have to continue to have the pressure because we give up the pressure. i mean, because i will say i wrong and he will stay on a powerful another which is also likely. so that is extremely important to the result of all the different countries and increase our sanctions are used to promote the presence, eventually be much more forceful. eventually, activities of the chicken on each of the going to be on all the federal, but also all of the russians who have some links with the government. we're having links over here, for example, look at bank accounts we beneficial have and you don't have other relatives who are
3:57 am
studying and european universities, which is also happening on that if they are against for example of these, please offer belushi. we have to be very forceful against the iraq which of those which are part of the game. and that's we can do much more from the building already. of course we have strategy for actions, but we have to do much more just to show that we are not giving up. and the supporting who is the person will be elected, and we want to have a change in the all right, we'll have to leave it there. good discussion. thanks very much gentlemen. thanks for being on inside soy. anatole called towel capital atlanta, and valerie sab carlo, thanks for me with us. and thank you for watching, as always, some of the can see the program again any time by visiting our website, justina dot com. and for further discussion, you can go to our facebook page, that's facebook dot com, forward slash a j in slides to you can also join the conversation on twitter handle. there is at
