Large-scale anti-Lukashenko protests continue in Belarus for sixth straight weekend

1 min read

Large protests against the veteran Belarus president, Alexander Lukashenko, continued with tens of thousands of people taking to the streets of the capital, Minsk, for the sixth weekend in a row.

The demonstrations began when Lukashenko secured a sixth term after claiming victory in an election that has had its legitimacy called into question.

The leader of the main opposition party, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, was in Brussels on Monday to push the European Union to agree on sanctions against officials accused of election-rigging in Belarus, but the EU failed to reach unanimity on the decision, despite not recognising Lukashenko’s legitimacy.

As violent arrests of protesters continue in Belarus, anonymous hackers leaked the personal data of 1,000 police officers in retaliation.
