Exiled opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya announced the preparation of a new wave of protests in Belarus. Tsikhanouskaya announced this on her Telegram page.

Mass protests erupted against Lukashenko last summer after he declared victory in a presidential election that the opposition said was rigged. The demonstrations have dwindled after the authorities launched a brutal crackdown, beating and arresting hundreds of activists.
