Serhat TUNAR -TDO- About 10 thousand female protesters on the streets of Minsk, the Belarusian capital, demanded the resignation of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and demanded a renewal of the elections.
Many demonstrators hit pots and pans in their hands and chanted slogans in favor of Opposition Kooordination Council member Maria Kolesnikova, who called for the elections to be renewed. About 70 female protesters were detained during the events.
As is known, the protests in Belarus, which began after the presidential elections on August 9, continue to grow. Opposition voters argue that the polls were rigged and are calling for Lukashenko, who says he was elected for the sixth time with 80 percent of the vote, to resign.
The European Union also says that the elections are irregular. But Russia stands by Alexander Lukashenko.
