‘Russian World’ activists stage unauthorized picket in Minsk

Adherents of ‘Russian World’ conducted an unauthorized picket in Minsk Independence Square on February 4. Six people took part in the action.


The action participants supported the idea suggested by Russian MP Evgeni Fyodorov who wants Russian athletes to take part in competitions as part of Belarus’ team. Russians and Belarusians are one people, the action participants announced. They also threatened: “If you prepare a Maidan you will go to Magadan!”

The action was organized by members of the unregistered organization NVR-Belarus (NVR – Russian national liberation movement).
