58 people were detained in Belarus on Saturday – in the world

Belarusian security forces detained 58 people in protests on Saturday, a spokeswoman for the Interior Ministry said on Sunday.

In Belarus, 13 “centers of socio-political activity” were identified on Saturday, a ministry spokeswoman said.

The human rights center “Vyasna” previously reported that about 40 people were detained in Belarus on Saturday, most of them during the protest march.

Protests against the rigging of the presidential election have been going on in Belarus for more than two months. More than 13,000 people have been detained and several hundred injured during the protests.

According to the official results of the presidential election in Belarus on August 9, the current head of state Alexander Lukashenko won 80.1% of the vote, and opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanovska – 10.1%, but the opposition believes the election results are fake and Tikhanovsky won the election convincingly.

The EU and other Western countries have also refused to recognize the election results.
