Simultaneously, two heads of Svetlana Tikhanovskaya’s affiliated funds, Andrej Stryzhak (BySol Foundation) and Alexey Leonchik (ByHelp Foundation), stated that Prigozhin allegedly moved to Belarus under the guarantee of Olga Karach (Please see the screenshots), implying Olga Karach’s involvement in the negotiations between Alexander Lukashenko and Yevgeny Prigozhin.
We sincerely thank Svetlana Tikhanovskaya’s affiliated funds for their high appreciation of our negotiating and peacekeeping abilities, as well as the recognition of the merits of both Our House and Olga Karach personally. However, the only guarantee we are ready to give to criminals Prigozhin and Lukashenko is that they will face the International Tribunal in The Hague and and answer for all their crimes. We will make every possible effort to ensure that this happens.
Our House works every day with victims of criminal activities committed by both dictator Alexander Lukashenko and the criminal authority Yevgeny Prigozhin, striving to minimize the consequences for Belarusian and Ukrainian refugees fleeing from the terror and war unleashed and supported by these two international criminals. The arrival of Prigozhin in Belarus increases turbulence and tension in our region, creates new risks for Belarusian citizens, and greatly complicates our meticulous day-to-day work in supporting those affected by unjustified violence.
In turn, we would like to advise the two affiliated funds of Svetlana Tikhanovskaya to focus on their direct work of assisting the victims of repression, which they have often neglected in the past three years. Additionally, they should publicly answer the corruption allegations that are constantly raised against them by various respected organizations.
We understand that it can be challenging for the Svetlana Tikhanovskaya’s affiliated funds to find time responding to the corruption allegations against them, as they seem preoccupied with spreading fakes and disinformation about both Our House and other organizations that really assist victims of war and repression.
