Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has offered his country's “support and solidarity” to Belarusian Olympic athlete Krystsina Tsimanouskaya, who has taken refuge in the Polish embassy in Tokyo.

“I talked to the brave Krystsina Tsimanouskaya … She is being taken care of and safe,” Morawiecki wrote in a post on Facebook on Tuesday.

He added that “helping the athlete is an important and much needed gesture to bring the attention of the international community to the events beyond our eastern border.”

Tsimanouskaya is expected to fly to Warsaw from Tokyo on Wednesday, according to the head of the Belarusian Sports Solidarity Foundation, Aleksandr Opeykin.

"She has accepted the offer issued by the Polish Foreign Ministry to request international help, she has done that and she has received a Polish visa," Opeykin said on Monday, as quoted by the Reuters news agency.

"We, at the Foundation, helped her to get the ticket to Warsaw," he added.

The Belarusian Sport Solidarity Foundation was set up in August last year to provide support to athletes who face repression at the hands of the authorities in Minsk.

Tsimanouskaya was issued a humanitarian visa after she took refuge in the Polish embassy in Tokyo on Monday, according to officials.

A day earlier she refused her team's orders to board a flight home from the Olympic Games.

"Poland will do whatever is necessary to help her to continue her sporting career," Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Marcin Przydacz said in a tweet on Monday.
