Sviatlana Heorhiyeuna Tsikhanouskaya or Svetlana Georgiyevna Tikhanovskaya (née Pilipchuk; Belarusian: ???????? ?????????? ??????????? (????????) [s?v?a?tlana ?????r??ij?wna t?s?ixa?n?wskaja p?il?ip?t??uk]; Russian: ???????? ?????????? ??????????? (????????) [sv???tlan? ????or???(j)?vn? t??x??nofsk?j? p??l??p?t?uk]; born 11 September 1982) is a Belarusian human rights activist and politician who ran for the 2020 Belarusian presidential election as the main opposition candidate. She is married to activist Sergei Tikhanovsky, who was a candidate for the same election until his arrest on 29 May 2020; she subsequently announced her intention to run in his place. The incumbent Alexander Lukashenko was officially declared the victor in a contest marred by allegations of widespread electoral fraud. Subsequently, Tsikhanouskaya claimed to have received between 60 and 70% of the vote and has appealed to Western countries to recognise her as the winner, although instead they called for a re-run and no longer recognise Lukashenko as President.
