I can say that I am ready and I want to. But I will say in May, will I run or not" — said Alexander Milinkevich.

The leader of the Movement «For Freedom» also commented on Andrei Sannikov’s, who is also going to run for presidency, statement  that EU should admit mistake its current policy towards Belarus, «Nasha Niva» informs.

«I believe that EU policy is not wrong, but ineffective, — said Alexander Milinkevich. — I do not see a positive alternative to today’s dialogue. And if someone says that the dialogue must be stopped, I would like to hear what policies he would propose. It is necessary to improve dialogue and search tools to make the authorities take steps to liberalization.

According to policy, » we have to look for new, more efficient ways of cooperation in matters of independence. »  «Authorities will not fight for independence. Authorities would fight only for the power.
