Ultra alert[edit | edit source]

President Alexander Lukashenko "won" his 6th term in office despite of mass protests against economic decline, political elites and growing Covid-19 numbers. As he boasted on national TV about crushing the opposition at the poll, the cops and secret police crushed Minsk's opposition protesters on the streets. 1 protester was killed, 1 cop was wounded and "many" protesters were injured by police. The internet is been cut off in Belarus. A pro-opposition activist in Vitebsk said the President only really got about 10% of the vote in the city of Vitebsk.
