Walesa: I'd back revolution in Belarus
The former leader of the Solidarity movement in Poland has said he would support a people`s revolution in neighbouring Belarus. Lech Walesa who won a Nobel Peace Prize and went on to become Poland`s president, was speaking on the 25th anniversary of the union`s founding. In an interview for the BBC`s "World This Weekend" program, he said Belarus should expect no support from the West. He said the European Union should be ready to support a reformed Belarus.
