More people take to streets in Belarus after crackdown on post-election demonstrations | DW News

Almost seven thousand people have been detained since president Lukaschenko claimed electoral victory – and sparked public anger. Now, thousands of people are back on the streets of the Belarusian capital Minsk – for a fifth day of protests against a violent crackdown on demonstrations. It follows the disputed presidential election on August 9, 2020. In many parts of the city, protesters formed human chains, filling squares and lining avenues. These post-election protests in Belarus were also at the top of the agenda at talks between the German and Norwegian foreign ministers in Berlin today.
