Thursday, April 27, 2006 reports (in Russian) that opposition leader Aleksandr Milinkevich has just been detained in Minsk.


Below are three of my most recent Belarus items on Global Voices:

LJ users andrews_kovas and eugene_grabkin post their photo reports from Charnobylski Shlyakh, a protest rally that took place in Minsk yesterday.


Iryna of TOL's Belarus Blog writes about more arrests and detentions in Belarus, following yesterday's protest rally "Charnobylski Shlyakh." She also quotes Syarhei Kaliakin, an opposition activist: “20 years ago Chernobyl disaster has taken place. 10 years ago a political Chernobyl has happened, when the legally elected parliament was disbanded and people, who rely on violence rather than rule of law, came to power.”


David McDuff of A Step At A Time links to an item at Maidan about a young Belarusian facing seven to 12 years in prison for having written "We want something new!" on the wall of a building in Minsk.
