On 28 April, Belarusians marked Radunitsa, the day of rejoicing and a commemoration of the departed ancestors. Despite the calls from the Healthcare Ministry, many Belarusians showed up at the graves of their relatives, not all of them wearing protective masks and gloves.
The administration at the Northern Cemetry in Minsk told Euroradio there were 1.5 times fewer people this year than on Radunitsa in 2019.
