“Shame! Shame!” Shouted dozens of residents of the small town gathered on the platform. Five employees of the Belarusian police, who did not interfere with the action, walked along the platform.

Thousands of protests and strikes have been continuing throughout Belarus for the second week. A significant part of the country's population accuses Alexander Lukashenko, who has headed the republic for more than 26 years, and, in fact, declared himself the winner once again, of falsifying the voting results.
