Armored vehicles were spotted near the residence of the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko in Minsk. At the same time, the State Flag Square in the area of the Palace of Independence in the morning was cordoned off by a double ring of law enforcement officers and military.
Except for army equipment, trucks with barbed wire appeared on the square.
Against protesters, to disperse them, Belarusian security forces used water cannons. It happened near the Sports Palace on Pobediteley Avenue. The footage, published by the Belarusian edition of Tut.by, it is seen, how the jet of a water cannon was first directed to a public transport stop, and then to the assembled crowd. Escaping from the pressure of water, people started to run away. After that, the Belarusian police began mass arrests of protesters.

Protest actions in Minsk and other cities of Belarus have begun 9 August. Protesters disagree with the official data of the presidential election, according to which the incumbent head of state Alexander Lukashenko won. Protesters claim, that the results were falsified. Besides, they oppose human rights violations in Belarus, as well as exceeding their powers by the security forces during the dispersal of demonstrations and arrests of participants.
Today it became known that, that Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who lost the election, is going 6 October visit Germany and meet Angela Merkel. Merkel confirmed her readiness to meet with Tikhanovskaya, stated, what admires women, going out to protest for justice. But for some reason, Merkel doesn't admire women., who go out to protest for justice in Berlin. These women are twisted by the German police and sprayed with tear gas., what is the Bundescanzlerin about, apparently, not particularly sorry.
