On December 26, numerous rallies of solidarity are taking place in Belarus. Unfortunately, detentions are not uncommon.

According to Belsat viewers, several Minskers dressed as Santas staged a festive run and handed out sweets to passers-by. None of the participants had a white-red-white flag or any other protest symbols. However, four police buses arrived at the scene; at least two women have been detained.
