Protests in Belarus

The Parliament of Belarus released the statement on protests in the country, BELTA reports. 

"The actions of law enforcement agencies are adequate in the view of provocations allowed by members of the unauthorized actions," the parliamentarians said.

At the same time, MPs stated that acts of violence were unacceptable for the Belarusian people.

As is known, the presidential election in Belarus took place on August 9. The country's Central Election Committee (CEC) released the preliminary results, with Lukashenko collecting 80.23 percent of all votes, and his main rival Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya scored almost 10. The latter's electoral campaign claimed they did not recognize the results released by the CEC of Belarus.

Clashes with police and arrests followed. Hundreds of people were wounded, and a lethal case was observed, as protests unfurled in nine cities all over the country.
