British streaming portal Netflix is filming a documentary about the political protests in the Republic of Belarus, which began after the presidential elections on August 9 and continue to this day. This was announced by Franak Vyachorka, adviser to the former presidential candidate of Belarus Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya on international affairs, on his Telegram channel.

"The British film crew has been filming the project for two months. The heroes of the picture will be demonstrators, the Coordination Council and Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya herself. Filming takes place in Minsk, Kiev and Vilnius. Vyachorka also noted that the members of the film crew had already been detained," the message informs.

As we reported earlier, in Belarus, for the third month, mass protests have continued over the official results of the presidential elections, according to which Alexander Lukashenko, who ran for a sixth term, received 80 percent of the vote. The first shares were violently accelerated. A criminal case was opened for an attempt to seize power in connection with the creation of the Opposition Coordination Council.

On October 12, the Belarusian Interior Ministry threatened to use military weapons against the protesters to maintain order on the streets of Minsk. The first deputy head of the department, Gennady Kazakevich, said that the protest actions had become extremely radical.
