Coming from Michajlaŭski Garden Sq., a large group of OMON agents and enforcement agents in camouflage uniforms were chasing and randomly grabbed protesters off the street. Protesters, some of whom had white-red-white flags, were trying to escape detention. An off-screen voice screams "You brave because you fight against children!".

Two OMON agents grabbed a young blond man. A girl attempted to break in to help him out, but could not help. One of the OMON officers said to another "Sasha, we are not going further! Come back!"

In the other video, we could see a few protesters tripped and fell. One of the agents, helped a girl to get back on her feet and then ran after the agents.
