The live chain in Minsk turned into a procession. This was announced on Saturday, August 22, by the Izvestia correspondent from the scene.

According to him, people headed towards Independence Avenue.

Earlier it was reported that women lined up in a chain of solidarity at the Komarovsky market in the Belarusian capital. It was noted that, as a sign of support, car drivers honk demonstrators and give roses.

The head of the Belarusian state, Alexander Lukashenko, said earlier on Saturday that the instigators of the riots in the republic are near Warsaw and Vilnius.

Protests in Belarus have been taking place since August 9, after the announcement of the results of the presidential elections in Belarus. According to the CEC, Lukashenka won with 80.1% of the vote. Opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya took second place, gaining about 10%.

The opposition expressed dissatisfaction with the election results; clashes with the police began in the country. The protesters are demanding new elections.

A number of large enterprises went on strike.
