Place/Location: prospect Mira 15, City Park
Identity of the victim(s): civilians - families with children
Identity of the perpetrator(s): OMON and policemen
The victims were civilians and families with children in a park. Two people covered their shoulders with a white-red flag, namely a mother with a kid in her arms and a young man. Several civilians were present in the park with their children and the atmosphere was quiet. It was not a demonstration.
It was at this moment that a dozen OMON servicemen arrived and took these young men into custody, for the sole reason that it was covered with the white and red flag, a symbol of resistance to Lukashenko. Four policemen stood nearby and didn't intervene. The few civilians present on the scene tried to oppose this arrest without legal grounds but the OMON agents who remained on the spot surrounded them. There was outrage. Women insisted that the agents leave the place because they scared the children. While leaving, they threatened the women saying "don't provoke us!"
