Amnesty International organized the rally in the Ukrainian capital; the participants brought the white and red flag, which is the national symbol of Belarus. They also brought banners and makeshifts of riot shields.
The people lit white and red flares and shouted "Long live Belarus", urging the Belarusian police to stop violence against protesters.
As is known, Belarusians took it to the streets on August 9, protesting against the outcome of the presidential election that took place on the same day. According to the Central Election Committee, the incumbent president Alexander Lukashenko won with some 80 percent, while his main rival Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya collected almost 10 percent of votes. The protesters disagreed, believing that the voting protocols were tampered with - in favor of Lukashenko.
Later, Tsikhanouskaya escaped to Lithuania, claiming she was afraid for her family's safety.
Protesters keep holding their rallies and protest actions, standing against the riot police. Hundreds of people are wounded on both sides, as riot police resorted to brute force, exceeding their authority. A lethal case among protesters was observed, too.
