In Belarus, a national strike was declared in response to the inauguration of Alexander Lukashenko behind closed doors and the dispersal of the rally. This was reported by NEXTA Telegram-channel.

"A national strike is set for Thursday and Friday! It is time for the workers of all state-owned enterprises to show themselves once again. As always, you will be intimidated, but living in complete lawlessness is even worse," the statement said.

Besides that – drivers and pedestrians are working on blocking roads and routes across the country, as well as conducting decentralized rallies in different areas.
