Recall that the protests in the cities of Belarus have not stopped for the third day. In clashes with the security forces and injured over two hundred people, some required hospitalization. The reason for the exit of people to the streets was the re-election of Alexander Lukashenko, President at absolutely opaque counting process. As reported, the candidate of the United opposition Svetlana Tikhanovski did not recognize the victory of Lukashenko, saying that he had received in the elections of 9 August, approximately 80% of the votes. The CEC has counted it only 10% have re-elected President — a little more than 80%.
