The protests continued today after the winter break.
In Belarus, the militia has once again arrested dozens of leaders in the country Alexander Lukashenko protesters across the country, the human rights organization Viasna says. In addition, at least five journalists have been apprehended.
Demonstrations against Lukashenko continued today after a break during the winter months. However, in the capital Minsk, protesters could not get to the center because the militia had closed, among other things, several streets and the main square.
In the afternoon, the Telegram channel coordinating the protests, Nexta, called on the protesters to organize several separate protests across the city.
The protests began in August after Lukashenka was elected for a further term in a fraudulent election. In protests that continued throughout the fall, participants were treated harshly, and hundreds of them were later sentenced to long prison terms. In addition, several people died as a result of militia violence.
