71st protest day: Partisan March in Minsk (photo report)

On October 18, Partisan March was held in the capital and regions. Apparently, Belarusian protesters do pay respects to the partisan past of the republic, but today they were openly taking to the streets instead of hiding in the woods.

Columns of participants were heading to Partyzanski Avenue from multiple corners of the city. Tens of thousands showed up at the rally in Minsk, Belsat journalist Iryna Slaunikava reported from the scene.

To disperse protesters, siloviki used flashbang grenades and fired rubber bullets into the air several times, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reports, citing the Belarusian police.

As of 8 pm (local time), at least 111 people have been detained throughout Belarus, human rights centre Viasna reports. The list is constantly being updated.
