Several dozen opposition supporters are holding a traditional women's march in Minsk on Saturday, a Sputnik correspondent reported
A small group of participants first gathered near a shopping mall in the Belarusian capital and then started marching down the Independence Avenue.
Initially, they marched without slogans and symbols, but later unfurled opposition white-red-white flags. Participants of the unsanctioned procession are also carrying flowers, white-and-red umbrellas and banners.
Nationwide protests have been ongoing in Belarus since the August 9 election in which President Alexander Lukashenko secured his sixth term. The opposition refuses to recognize his victory and continues holding rallies, with the largest ones taking place on weekends.
