Briefly:

  • Tsikhanovskaya announced changes in her activities, created a new structure - the United Transitional Cabinet.

  • One of the functions of the cabinet is to create a conflict resolution mechanism.

  • Tsikhanovskaya remains the main figure of the opposition with enormous powers.

  • The appointment of the Minister of Defense to the cabinet is a response to the request of the politicized public, which has become radicalized and hopes for a forceful solution to the Belarusian conflict.

Many on social networks, as well as some speakers on this forum, said that we need to finally get together to jointly develop a strategy, a plan for victory.

Pavel Latushka spoke about the "historic decisions" that the conference should make.

In a certain sense, the conference was a response to the request of the opposition electorate.

There were many claims to the address of Office Tsikhanovskaya.

Like, something should be done, act more decisively, arrange some changes in politics.

Well, the conference itself, the creation of a new structure — the Joint Transitional Cabinet — became a way to satisfy this demand.

Apparently, the big meeting in Vilnius was a response to the claims of Valer Tsapkala and his associates, other critics of Tsikhanovskaya.

At the conference, much was said about the unity of the opposition.

It was even formulated a task to stop conflicts and discord with the help of this forum.

And for this, they say, it is necessary to create new structures.

In my opinion, the very task of ending conflicts is unrealistic in principle.

After all, there is no conflict in a live political process, politics is a conflict sphere by definition.

Rather, the task of creating a mechanism for legal, legitimate conflict resolution and finding a compromise should be set.

It is this role that the Joint Transitional Cabinet (JTC) should perform.

It includes Pavel Latushka as Tikhonovskaya's deputy.

Perhaps in this way he will satisfy his political ambitions.

This is partly the meaning and content of the current conference.

However, it was not possible to achieve complete unification.

The Tsapkalov husband and wife team did not join Svetlana Tsikhanovskaya, which means they were outside the opposition mainstream.

In her closing speech, Tsikhanovskaya announced the creation of the APC.

It follows from her speech that she heads the cabinet.

And it is Svetlana who appoints members of the government.

In any case, until the Coordinating Council starts working.

That means, at any moment, any government official can be dismissed from office.

That is, Tsikhanovskaya remains the main figure of the opposition with enormous powers.

This model somewhat resembles the American system of government, where the president is also the head of the government.

The appointment of ex-serviceman Valeriy Sakhashchyk as the person responsible for the protection caused a great response at the conference.

There was thunderous applause, a long speech by Sakhashchyk himself.

This was the answer to another request of the politicized public, which has become radicalized and hopes for a forceful solution to the Belarusian conflict.

And, by the way, the first panel was dedicated to this very topic.

If there is a request, then here is the answer - the appointment of the Minister of Defense to the cabinet.

What kind of army he will be able to organize is another question.

But Tikhonovskaya's office responds to requests.

Maybe this is the meaning of democratic politics.
