According to the Belarusian media, concerts organized by the authorities for the presidential elections scheduled for August 9 are now canceled in several cities. The artists announced to the organizers began to massively refuse to participate in campaigning events, including Russian ones.
So, the telegram channel Nexta Live reports that they are now dismantling the stage in Minsk, where the concert was supposed to take place on the evening of August 8. They also began to dismantle the scene in Brest. Trucks have already taken away all the equipment from the scene in Grodno.
The Telegram-channel “Podyom” quoted a letter from the Vitebsk City Executive Committee to the heads of the media with a request to organize a broad public awareness of the cancellation of the concert on August 8.
