Minsk remembers Chernobyl under KGB scrutiny | Gazeta.Ru

On April 26, for the 26th anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe, the opposition held their traditional rally “Chernobylsky shlyakh” (Chernobyl way). City authorities allowed a memorial march and rally afterwards.

A little less than one thousand people protested against the building of the Ostrovets nuclear power plant. They also discussed political issues: the release of political prisoners and a boycott of the upcoming September parliamentary elections.

The rally started near the National Academy of the Sciences building.
