An attempt by protesters in Minsk to disassemble a water cannon is classified as violence against police officers, Minsk prosecutor Oleg Lavrukhin said. He said that the corresponding criminal case had already been initiated.
Mr. Lavrukhin said on the STV channel that since an officer of the Internal Affairs Directorate was sitting at the wheel of the water-cannon car, who was performing his duties, the dismantling of the car is considered violence against the employee during execution. “This is damage to state property at least. Even if we speak from the point of view of law, since this property is involved, in fact, in the maintenance of public order, then to draw some parallels here – a prank, not a prank, “that I have done such a thing” is a rather serious responsibility, ”he said. he.
The prosecutor said that the person who dismantled the water cannon during the October 4 protests had already been detained, but referred to media reports: “It has already been on television. That is, voicing the fact that the person who was engaged in this or committed this crime has already been detained. ” In total in Minsk in connection with the protests, according to Mr. Lavrukhin, about 250 criminal cases have been initiated, about 3 thousand people have been brought to administrative responsibility.
Protests against the current government in Belarus have continued since August 9, when the presidential elections were held in the country. The water cannon incident took place last Sunday. The protesters surrounded the water cannon, removed the liquid canisters from it and poured it onto the road. After that, he began to pour water up, and not on the protesters, and left.
