President calls for expulsion of protesting students

At a meeting on the preparation of the All-Belarusian People’s Assembly, Belarus President Alyaksandr Lukashenka demanded the dismissal of protesting students, teachers, professors, civil servants and doctors and accused the protesters of terrorism, reports Belsat.

Lukashenka called for the exclusion from universities of students who participate in protests. They, according to the politician, must either be sent to the army or simply thrown out into the street. Lukashenka wants to do the same with opposition-minded teachers.

Mass protests against the results of the presidential elections, which took place on 9 August, have been going on for three months in Belarus. Lukashenka was declared the winner, but the opposition did not recognise the results of the elections and considers them falsified, demanding the release of political prisoners and new elections.
