Riot police in Minsk started shooting at people standing on the balconies of residential buildings. This is reported by Sputnik Belarus.
It is noted that local residents shouted advice to the protesters. вЂњRiot policemen ran out to the crowd. The protesters ran away. People from common balconies of nearby high-rise buildings shouted to them where to hide, in response to the вЂњcoordinatorsвЂќ they fired several times with pump-action guns, вЂќ the agency writes.
Earlier it was reported that the Belarusian OMON began to storm the entrances of residential buildings in Minsk. Police special forces broke down doors with a battering ram. Thus, the security forces tried to grab the protesters hiding in the entrances: earlier in the Telegram channels a list of intercom codes appeared in Minsk so that the protesters could hide there from the riot police.
Protests in Belarus continue for the fourth day. Citizens oppose the official results of the presidential election, according to which the incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko won more than 80 percent of the vote. The authorities disperse the protesters with rubber bullets, truncheons, water cannons, tear gas, and stun grenades. Flares, paving stones, Molotov cocktails are used against security forces.
