From early in the morning, special equipment is brought to the center of the capital of Belarus. Military trucks and buses with fighters of law enforcement agencies go there.
It is known that the opposition is going to go through the main streets of the city. Therefore, in the morning the authorities blocked the movement of streets leading to Independence Avenue.
A convoy with a large number of security forces was moving along the avenue to the center of Minsk at about 10:40, TASS reports. Oktyabrskaya, Victory and Independence Squares are now completely cordoned off. There are security forces on duty, and fences are standing. The stele "Minsk - the hero city" was fenced with barbed wire.
