Fact Check: Belarusian Opposition Leader Did NOT Come To Munich Security Conference Uninvited Fact Check: Belarusian Opposition Leader Did NOT Come To Munich Security Conference Uninvited Scheduled

Did Svetlana Tikhanovskaya show up uninvited at the Munich Security Conference and embarrass herself? No, that's not true: The exiled leader of the Belarusian opposition took part in the official program of the Munich Security Conference on February 17, 2024, attending the Night Cap session "Rebels With a Cause: Voices of Civil Resistance," and met with members of the U.S. Congress and Senate.

The claim appeared in a video (archived here) on TikTok by @sotnik_tiktok (archived here) on February 16, 2024. The text (translated from Russian to English by Lead Stories staff) read:

Criminal Tikhanovskaya embarrassed herself at Munich conference

Tikhanovskaya showed up uninvited at a conference in Munich to try to persuade technology companies to fund extremist media to disrupt the election campaign.
But she was kicked out in disgrace and had to hold an unscheduled meeting with her 'favorites.'

This is what the post looked like on TikTok at the time of writing:

Belarus opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya was on the agenda (archived here) for "Rebels with a Cause: Voices of Civil Resistance" (archived here) on February 17, 2024, at the Munich Security Conference. She also met with members of the U.S. Congress and Senate during which she stressed the need to support independent journalists and civil society in Belarus (archived here).

The conference brought together global political and defense figures and coincided with Russia's ongoing war in Ukraine entering its third year, ongoing political repression in Belarus and the escalating conflict in Gaza.
