The Belarusian journalist Tadeusz Giczan informed about Yuri Voskriesienski’s participation in the forum. – This makes fun of the Internal Security Agency – comments Paweł Wojtunik, former head of CBŚP and CBA.
The journalist Tadeusz Giczan, a Belarusian journalist associated with the Nexta_tv portal, first drew the attention of Yuri Voskriesienski’s stay in Karpacz.
The interested person does not hide his visit to Karpacz. He commented on his participation in the Economic Forum on his profile on Telegram.
The spokesman of the Economic Forum, Paweł Jabłoński, said in a telephone interview with TVN24 that the organizers of the forum do not make selections and that anyone can register and take part in the forum. He also stipulated that countries do not send official representatives, but in his opinion, Svetlana Cichanouska is the representative of “democratic Belarus”.
A meeting with the leader of the Belarusian opposition, Sviatlana Cichanouska, is scheduled for Tuesday.
What is known about Voskriesensky himself? He is a businessman operating in the IT industry. He worked closely with the former opponent of Alexander Lukashenka in the presidential election, Viktar Babaryka.
In 2020, he was sent to prison for two months for his opposition activities. He took part in a meeting organized in prison with the Belarusian leader himself and was soon released. Since then, he has been involved in the pardoning process for detained and sentenced oppositionists – but on terms dictated by Alyaksandr Lukashenka.
– Belarusian political prisoners are blackmailed by the regime. They may hope for freedom, but first they must admit the charges against them and humble them in front of the protective father of the nation – this is how the journalists of “Gazeta Wyborcza” described the action for which Voskriesienski was standing.
It was he who was to prepare a list of opponents who are ready not only to confess to all the crimes they have been accused of, but also to humble themselves before the “protective father of the nation”, the “guarantor of the constitution” and the “deeply respected president”.
Such an offer was also to be received (and rejected) by the journalist Andrzej Poczobut, staying in the penal colony, and Andżelika Borys.
According to the opposition activists, Voskriesensky himself was an officer of the Belarusian KGB from the very beginning, pretending only to be active in the opposition.
Silence of the services
We wanted to know how it is possible that an associate of the Belarusian president takes part in the Economic Forum in Karpacz. We tried to ask questions – both by e-mail and by phone – to the spokesman of the minister coordinator of special services, Stanisław Żaryn. However, he did not reply, nor did he answer the phone.
– This man needed a visa. When a state of emergency is declared on the eastern border, and Minister Mariusz Kamiński speaks directly about possible provocations, it embarrasses the Internal Security Agency – assesses Paweł Wojtunik, former head of the CBŚP and former head of the CBA.
– Polish politicians are tired of the confrontation and want to rebuild the bridges – wrote Woskriesensky himself on his profile in social media, thus commenting on his visit on the forum.
