It follows from the conversation of the official with his subordinates that the leadership of Belarusian law-enforcers discussed at a meeting with President Aliaksandr Lukashenko the possibility of creating special camps in the country, where especially active demonstrators would be placed.
вЂњIt was said to develop, to make a camp. Well, not for prisoners of war, not even for internees, but a resettlement camp. And put barbed wire around the perimeter,вЂќ said Karpenko. He explained that the protesters, included in a specialized database of the protesters for two or more times, would be sent there.
The security officer also confirmed the information of Belarusian human rights activists that Alexander Taraikovsky, who died in the first days of the crisis in the country, was killed by riot police with a shot to the chest from a Russian Yarygin traumatic gun. вЂњYes, Taraikovsky, yes, a drunkard and a retard. He died, of course, from a rubber bullet that flew into his chest,вЂќ the official said.
