In Belarus, riot police officers detained members of the Presidium of the Coordination Council Olga Kovalkova and Sergei Dylevsky. This was reported on Kovalkova's Facebook page.

"Members of the Coordination Council Presidium Olga Kovalkova and Sergei Dylevsky were detained near the entrance of the plant. They came to talk in front of the entrance with the striking workers and the deputy general director on ideology," the message says.

It is noted that during the arrest, riot police accused them of organizing an unauthorized mass event, after which they were put in a paddy wagon and taken away.

As you know, on August 9, presidential elections were held in Belarus, after which the country was swept by thousands of rallies. The authorities attempted to harshly suppress the actions, which intensified the protest wave. The largest enterprises have also started striking across the country, and city dwellers are uniting in living chains in protest.

According to the final data of the CEC, incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko received 80.1% of the vote, his main opponent Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya - 10.1%.

Belarusian opposition leader and ex-presidential candidate Tsikhanouskaya announced that she initiated the creation of a Coordination Council to ensure the transfer of power. This decision was made taking into account what is happening in the country and the need to take urgent measures to restore the rule of law in Belarus.

Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Belarus opened a criminal case on the seizure of power for the establishment of the Coordinating Council.
