Barricades are being built in the center of Minsk

Protesters against Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko have started building barricades in the center of Minsk.





Barricades are being built near the Pushkinskaya metro station. To do this, use billboards. It is reported that the security forces are very actively using stun grenades and shooting at the protesters with rubber bullets. At least one of the participants was injured.

Earlier it was reported about the construction of barricades in Brest. Citizens use improvised materials, including concrete benches. Pieces of paving slabs are thrown at the security forces. In response, riot police use rubber bullets and stun grenades.

Machine gunmen were seen in the center of the Belarusian capital, and a journalist was shot in the leg with rubber bullets.

On August 9, mass protests and clashes with riot Police took place across Belarus. They were caused by the past presidential elections, in which Lukashenko, according to official data, won more than 80 percent of the vote. 3 thousand people were detained and several dozen were injured. One person was reported dead, but the information has not yet been officially confirmed.
