Riot police raids in Minsk centre


Riot policemen were stopping and searching young men in the Belarusian capital yesterday.

Charter97.org has learnt it from readers.

“Riot police officers stopped almost all young men aged from 16 to 25 near metro stations yesterday,” a reader writes.

Similar raids have become a routine both in Minsk centre and suburbs. The riot police detain young people and search their bags explaining they look for illegal substances.
