On December 19, activists from FEMEN group held an action in front of the KGB headquarters in Minsk on occasion of the anniversary of post-election protests.
The girls stripped down and raised posters “Long Live Belarus!”
The girls drew a moustache on their faces. One of the activists had a drawing of Lukashenka on her back. The activists were chanting “Long live Belarus!”, “Nasha Niva” reports.
KGB security officers detained “Nasha Niva” video operator Tatsyana Haurylchyk, independent photographer Yulia Darashkevich and a journalist, whose name remains unknown. It’s possible it was a foreign journalist.
FEMEN activists managed to escape.
Ukrainian activists held the place of the action in secret. They spread information about the rally on social networks. Journalists knew about the rally, but secret services were too slow to react. Trying to prevent thwarting the performance, Ukrainian activists said they had given up an idea of coming to Minsk and would hold a rally in Kyiv. As it turned out, they had audacious plans.
