The damage to the economy of Minsk due to the protests that began across the country after the presidential elections in Belarus is estimated at 900 thousand Belarusian rubles (27.3 million rubles). Oleg Lavrukhin, the prosecutor of the capital, said this on STV, TASS reports.
According to him, such losses were incurred by the city budget and utilities from the first day of the protests – August 9 – to the present day. The prosecutor of Minsk stressed that part of this amount “will be covered, including by those actions that are qualified as criminal offenses.” Lavrukhin added that the issue of compensation for damage is under special control in the city prosecutor’s office.
To keep its economy afloat, Minsk secured the consent of Russian President Vladimir Putin to provide a loan of $ 1.5 billion. It is assumed that the current authorities of the republic will receive a billion by the end of the year, and another 500 million – already next year. On October 16, Belarus received the first part of the loan from Russia.
Protests in Belarus have continued since early August. The protesters demand the resignation of the entire leadership of the country, new elections, as well as an end to violence from the security forces and the prosecution of those who brutally dispersed the first protests after the elections and tortured the detainees.
