BBC has reported that Belarus’s opposition leader has threatened a mass walkout by workers if [dictator] Alexander Lukashenko does not resign in the next 13 days.

Svetlana Tikhanovskaya also threatened a huge nationwide protest in her ultimatum to the long-serving leader.

On Monday EU officials agreed to impose sanctions against Lukashenko.

Protests have swept the country since Lukashenko claimed victory in an August poll widely viewed as rigged.

He has ruled Belarus for 26 years and is often described as “Europe’s last dictator”.

On Tuesday, Mrs Tikhanovskaya said Belarus had “had enough” after two months of “political crisis, violence and lawlessness”.
