More than 500,000 Belarusians supported the Coordination Council as their representative body in national dialogue with #Lukashenko. They vote via telegram and viber. Only registered users with Belarusian phone numbers could vote. Done without any ads or administrative resources.
#Belarus interior ministry is doing sth dangerous.Its website published a rec. call in which a man asked police to use Kalashnikovs and live ammunition against protesters. “A couple of shots in the head,and everyone will sober up,” he said. It was later shown by state broadcaster
I keep receiving info that military reservists in #Belarus are getting summoned to the conscription office.Some of them were sent to a training camp for 35 days. Is it a way to keep men busy and not protesting? Rumours about calls for reservists appeared right before the election
