The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus at the request of Lukashenka compiled a database with data on protesters
The police of Belarus have created a database with information about the participants of the protest actions that began after the presidential elections in the country. The database contains information about the gender, age, region of residence, place of work or study of the protester, as well as his hobbies, the state TV channel Belarus 1 reported.
The database contains data of people “who were detained or identified during unauthorized mass events” since August 9, said the head of the department for the protection of law and order and prevention of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs of the Minsk City Executive Committee Alexander Kupchenya.
The order to create the base was given by Alyaksandr Lukashenka, said the first deputy head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus, head of the public security police Yury Nazarenko.
In September, the opposition Telegram channel Nexta Live, which covers events in Belarus, published data on more than 1,000 employees of the Belarusian Interior Ministry involved in the arrests of protesters.
