Interior Minister says protesters are paid for riots

The Interior Minister Yury Karayeu has accused the protesters of being funded from abroad, BelTA writes.

According to the minister, the core of the protesters is funded from abroad. Young men are allegedly paid 30 BYN, and young women – 60 BYN.

“They are manipulated, their consciousness and subconscious controlled,” said Yury Karayeu.

A chain of women with flowers stretched along Masherau Avenue for more than two kilometres.

Karayeu also promised that all cases of violence and abuse of authority by police will be investigated. But not now.

“This is very bad, I’m against it. It’s not supposed to be like this. We’ll deal with all cases. Not now, but when things calm down,” said Karayeu.
