Natalia Tsylinskaya, the President of the Belarusian Cycling Federation, has been in the spotlight for her involvement in the Lukashenko regime's discriminatory policies and illegal criminal prosecutions against Belarusian citizens. As the head of the cycling federation, Tsylinskaya has been implementing the Lukashenko regime's repressive policies towards those who express an active civic position. She has also been an active participant in the propaganda of the Lukashenko dictatorship.
Currently, Tsylinskaya and the Belarusian cycling federation have been involved in the illegal persecution of Aliaksandr Apeikin and Aliaksandra Herasimenia, two leaders of the Belarusian Free Sport who have been arbitrarily accused and prosecuted by the Lukashenko regime. They face the threat of up to 12 years in prison and the confiscation of their property. The main so-called victims in this illegal criminal prosecution are the Belarusian cycling federation, the Belarusian Ice Hockey Federation, the Belarusian modern pentathlon, and Belsportobespechenie. The alleged accusation against them is the call for sanctions and the transfer of international sports events from Belarus.
It should be noted that the international sports community has implemented sanctions, including the transfer of sports events, due to the massive human rights violations carried out by the Lukashenko regime and its participation in war aggression. Tsylinskaya's involvement in these illegal activities is a serious concern for the international community.
