Belarus President Elected For His Sixth Term; People Demands Re-Election

As much as 6,000 people were detained in different cities of Belarus including its capital Minsk, for protesting against the election result as President Alexander Lukashenko was re-elected for his sixth term, with 26 year authoritarian rule over the country. Human chains were formed in order to show dissent, demanding re-count of votes. "We stand a peaceful protest," said Ksenia Ilyashevich (23) IT specialist, one among the protesters.
