The footage published by residents of different districts of the city shows the movement of special equipment towards the center of the Belarusian capital – on Akademicheskaya, Platonov, Oktyabrskaya streets.

Law enforcement officers arrived in the area of ​​the Friendship of Peoples Park, where on April 26 the participants of the “Chernobyl Way” march timed to coincide with the anniversary of the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant gather.
