Your silence kills' and 'I am not mute; however I have no voice.' «We have founded an international exit poll, and we have carried out post-election polls for consulates and embassies in 320 countries, so-called exit polls,» said a speaker while addressing the crowd. According to the speaker, 82 percent of the votes after in the exit polls were in favour of the opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, while only 3.8 percent of the votes were in favour of the President Alexander Lukashenko.
