Thousands on streets of Belarus demand resignation of President Lukashenko – BBC News


The largest anti-Government protests since last week’s disputed elections have been taking place in Belarus. It’s estimated that 100,000 people have taken to the streets demanding that President Alexander Lukashenko steps down.

President Lukashenko, who’s been in power for 26 years, has claimed the country is under threat from foreign forces and is refusing to step down.

His opponents accuse him of rigging the presidential election and unleashing a violent crackdown against protesters and political opponents.

  1. Brave women are protesting against dictator A.Lukashenko

  2. After EU, US hits Belarus with curbs
    The US imposed sanctions on eight Belarusian officials on Friday.
    The move came after the EU announced sanctions on 40 peoples, including the interior minister.

  3. The people are defending their constitutional rights. There is no way to back. They are protecting their democracy.

  4. By the way, All Belarussians pay only $10-40 for home utilities (they average monthly salary is around $500), at the same time US people pay around 300-400 for home utilities, Ukrainians pay $120-180 per month (average salary is $250). Child care period is 3 years with payment around 70% of they salary. Day care for Belarussians is around $20-30 only. The government pays about $1200-2000 every time if mother got baby. There is NO Property tax in Belarus. There is NO any payment for medical service, all are free! Medical emergency is free, education is free, car insurance is just $10 per month, the country economic is growing while Lukashenko is President! At this time Ukrainian economic is falling down last 20 years despite Ukrainian Presidents are changed almost every 5 years and despite Ukrainian Revolution…


    If you watch this video you will understand that this "revolution" is Fascists recreation in Belarus. Watch attentively and note what flag colors are on that photos. The same flag all protects hold in Belarus meeting now!

    Also you can find the Hitler portrait which Belarussian are holding in their hands while German occupation in Belarus in 1941.

  8. ЖЫвЕ БЕЛАРУСЬ!!!Alive USA!!!!ЖЫвЕ Хабаровск!!!⚪🔴⚪✌️✊

  9. In Belarus some bloggers became well known and got a lot supporters. What did they tried to do? Yes, to get the power, well to try to get the power. Why? there is an answer to that question too. You get the power, you get all the money. We are talking about billions. But just for a few guys. What about the other people, the supporters? They are just morons. Sorry but that is the fact, not an opinion.

  10. So the BBC are covering the protests in Belarus but not covering the protests in London in the BBC's home country of the UK. Some 10,000 people attended a huge demonstration yesterday, protesting the corrupt, inhuman and undemocratic system that covid has highlighted. Across the world our rights and freedoms are being taken away at a frightening speed yet the BBC gave ZERO coverage to this. Shame on the BBC.

  11. I wish the BBC was as eager to cover Berlin last 1st August, with 2 million people in the street against liberticid covid measures & fear propaganda for a virus with a 99.96% survival rate. But no, that probably doesn't serve their narrative (globalist & satanist).

  12. I have been suffering from HPV for 5 years ,I was so worried with the challenges, I have taken several therapies and drugs with no cure, one faithful day I saw someone talked about how she was healed and i saw several testimonies about Dr Vincent website and how he cured people with diabetes, warts and corns so I contacted him through his email, and I was cured. My doctor diagnosed me and couldn't find any trace of HPV in me anymore. Thanks Dr Vincent, contact him through WhatsApp +2348146285597

  13. Беларусы – у вас мала выбару: лукашэнка альбо габрэі, якія возьмуць усё годнае ў вашай краіне і ператвораць вас у сваіх рабоў. Мы, палякі, ужо перажылі гэта. Не памыляйцеся. Выбар застаецца ў вашых руках і галовах.

  14. Белорусы – у вас небольшой выбор: Лукашенка или евреи, которые возьмут все достойное в вашей стране и превратят вас в своих рабов. Мы, поляки, это уже испытали. Не делайте нашей ошибки. Выбор по-прежнему в ваших руках и головах.

  15. I think more or less everything is fraught in this news and similar kind of news.

    One example are comments below – just try to check on the ones who comments those – those accounts are bots, they do not have any videos uploaded (or if have – then only garbage videos), they do not have any play list. This is bot army of spammers.

    If you cross compare these news to the ones which are reported from Belarus itself or Russia – those news are complete opposite.

    Such revolutions already manifested in Georgia and in Ukraine – they do not lead to anything to anything useful.

    I would not like to belief something that based on scam and bot army – I'm not sure who is pulls the strings here, but puzzled that youtube does not do anything about it.

  16. 今天全地球人應該起來像對付全球新冠肪炎一樣消滅西方民主詐騙集團政治騙子,打擊他們在全球各處散播民主病毒癌細胞,避免全球人類人傳人感染受苦受難



  17. Did you know that Lucashenko called all the protesters narks? Oh well. Looking at all of those narks there i can't stop but wonder just how mexican narco mafia kings should totaly learn some stuff from belarus' narko mafia.

  18. Hypocritical BBC.Where are the western "experts" now to call protestants "covidiots" becouse no one wears masks here not even bbc journalist.Obviously they don't mind now.

  19. Idiots – chose the poverty, chose the uncertainty, chose the Western morans, who cant wait to make more money out of you lot – just like from Russia, Ukraine etc. Опомнитесь, придурки

  20. RALLY
    Please don't believe this utter BS people. Do your own alternative research. Most important, finally get off your backsides and get demonstrating before the UK 2nd lockdown start at the end of August, middle of September 2020. It will go on for weeks on end and life will never return to how you previously knew it. Covid 19, is just the trojan horse to scare you all into complete submission. As I see, its working well with you lot. You're more worried about when or how long your pubs will be open for, meanwhile your children or grandchildren aren't allowed to have the education which is their right. You tax-payers fund this, you know! Or your loved ones life-saving OP is still on hold and you just accept this!

    The next final lockdown – "great finale", before you can say bye, bye to your basic human rights, was already planned in June 2020. Merkel has basically wrapped this all up with Gates in 2015 in Berlin while the world was sleeping. Boris, Merkel, Macron, the whole bloody lot were bribed millions by the WHO/Gates to force the 1st. lockdown. Both Angela Merkel and Theresa May were trained by Rothschild as youngsters. You/we didn't vote for them, this was pre planned and organised by Rothschild only. The facts are there to be found, just do your own research! The only one who refused the WHO bribe is Lukaschenko. Do your research. If Germany can wake up, so can you!

    I'm truly shocked that you're all still buying into this, running around like grateful zombies, while Nicola and Boris throw a narcissistic morsel of freedom in your direction now and again. This is how spirit is broken. Wake the fe*k up people and fight for your rights. This won't happen parked on your couch in front of this fake-news, mind-fuckery channel.   Laziness, fear of a killer-virus which never was. Accepting, almost begging for a vaccine which usually takes up to 9 years to be legally permitted to administer. The Covid 19 virus has a similar structure to HIV virus. Ask yourself why they still haven't come up with a vaccine for HIV yet in over 20 years? Or even cancer? Do your research.

    More people die of the common flu per year. Just do your maths and compare the regular death rates per year in the UK, with the actual current rates. In Germany roughly 100.000 people die per year due to various causes. From March 2020 until August 2020. About 10.000 people died with or because of Covid. Most of the people were old, hospital beds are still empty, staff are being put in part time work, or fired because lack of work. Urgent operations are meanwhile being postponed and more people are dying because they are being denied treatment for other ailments.

    Through sheer ignorance, fear of rejection from friends, work colleagues and family or just simply turning a blind eye to what the Nazis were really up to years ago, tragically cost many a lifes as you know. To my great astonishment, because I would more expect this fighting-siprit from my fellow Scots. I'm relieved to say that the Germans are well and truly woke and refuse to be duped again and are not only protesting for their own freedom in Germany but for the whole god damn world. The next rally in Berlin – 3 /4 million people are expected this time on the 29.08.2020. Starts at 10:30 AM – Brandenburger Gate.

    There was over 1 million on the 01.08.2020 in Berlin last time. As a witness I can confirm this. Get off your couch before its too late. If you believe you're already suffering because of the Plandemic, you're not and haven't, the worst is yet to come. Only you will be no longer be fearing a virus, but fines, imprisonment, unemployment and dying of the mandatory kill-bill vaccine, which will be solely exploding the bank accounts of the very people you're are obeying right now! WAKE UP AND DO THE WORK!

  21. HOW I GOT CURED FROM HIV I was diagnosed of HIV and i have tried all I can to get cured but all to no avail,,until I saw a post in a health forum about a doctor who prepare herbal medications to cure all kind of diseases including HIV ,at first I doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try,when I contacted this doctor via his email and he prepared a HIV herbal cure and sent it to me through the UPS delivering company service agent, when I received this herbal medicine, he gave me steps on how to apply it, after applying the way I was instructed,I was totally cured of this deadly disease called HIV , all thanks to Dr musa for saving me, if you are in any situation I no how it feels like, because you will think all hope has lots because you feel that you are dead already but here is the good news, God has send a helper to save lives though Dr musa his info contact on WhatsApp:+2348134722949) or Email

  22. At least they don't destroy their country businesses and kill people like our fools do! If you feel like slaves then what you're doing is right. If the Democrats here win they'll try to make us into slaves. Then we will have to do what you're doing!
