Three minibuses with riot policemen arrived at the courtyard of the Minsk Linguistic University. They detained several students.
Several Belarusian Telegram channels reported the arrests. They write that there were no license plates on the special equipment.
There is information that the students sang the Marseillaise, the anthem of the French revolution, before the arrival of the security forces.
The press secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus Olga Chemodanova told TASS that the students were not detained by the riot police. According to her, they were police officers.
They came for university students as part of past administrative cases, Chemodanova explained. The detentions are not connected with today's events, she said.
