Anti-government protests continue in Belarus.
On September 13, tens of thousands of people once again took to the streets of Minsk and other towns. The nearly five-week campaign against President Alexandr Lukashenko in an attempt to force him to resign following the presidential election seems to be not nearing any end.
At the same time, despite protests across the country and the increasing propaganda and diplomatic pressure, the Lukashenko government is not showing signs of any surrender. Instead, Police and security forces widely use force to crack down on protests and President Lukashenko insists that all the protests are controlled and staged from abroad (from NATO states). Just ahead of the election, the Belarusian leader was preferring to claim that it was Russia interested in the undermining the stability in the country. However, when Lukashenko met with real actions of his ‘European partners’, he once again changed his public stance trying to pose as a not only de-jure, but a de-facto ally of Russia.
