Protests in Belarus are settled with 380 detainees

Some 380 people were arrested on Sunday during opposition demonstrations held to coincide with the celebrations of Independence Day, as has condemned the Belarusian human rights organization Vesna. "More than 200 people were detained in Minsk. Another 180 were arrested in other cities in Belarus," said the group, as recorded by the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

Among those arrested would be several journalists. In Minsk twenty young summoned through focused social networks to applaud at the main station in Minsk, a new formula used by groups opposed to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. The police intervened immediately and introduced several of the protesters in their vans, but others slipped into the fray and involved hundreds of people who were on the other side of the avenue where the incidents occurred.

Meanwhile, in official acts, Lukashenko has addressed the Belarusian dressed in military uniform to expose a plot to organize a "color revolution" similar to those that occurred in Ukraine or Georgia. "They want to kneel. That will not happen," he assured.
