Belarus mass protests calling for the resignation of the president September 7 at 5:10 a.m.
In Belarus, where tensions continue following the presidential election, a massive protest was held on June 6 calling for President Lukashenko to step down. The anti-regime wants to expand the protests and force them to step down, but Mr. Lukashenko has refused to engage in dialogue with Russia as his back, and it is difficult to see a breakthrough in the situation.
In Belarus, protests against President Lukashenko’s election in August’s presidential election have continued, and it has been held in various parts of the country for six days.
In Minsk, the capital, more than 100,000 citizens marched through the centre to demand the resignation of President Lukashenko and the release of detained people.
The citizens eventually went to the president’s residence, but security forces blocked them from deploying armored vehicles.
According to the media, the security forces had been strengthened, and some members were not wearing badges to indicate their affiliation.
The Belarusian Interior Ministry has also detained more than 100 protesters.
As an anti-regime party, I would like to step up pressure by expanding the protests and start a dialogue with President Lukashenko and force him to step down.
However, President Lukashenko has refused to engage in dialogue by strengthening his approach to Russia, which he backs, and it is difficult to see a breakthrough in the situation.
