DW News published this video item, entitled “Belarus protests continue after Lukashenko’s secret inauguration | DW News” – below is their description.
Large crowds are expected to turn out in Belarus for the seventh consecutive Sunday of protests against authoritarian leader Alexander Lukashenko. On Saturday, police in the capital Minsk made dozens of arrests at a women’s’ march denouncing his re-election in a vote that many say was rigged. Lukashenko’s attempts to crackdown on protests has done little to dent protesters’ resolve. Despite the disputed election, Lukashenko was inaugurated with no previous notice or media present. The opposition is set to symbolically inaugurate Svetlana Tsikhanovskaya in response.DW News YouTube Channel
