Last news from Minsk

Elections in Belarus have ended.

Alexander Lukashenko won with 83% of voices. Main opposition candidate Alexander Milinkevich garnered 6.1% of the vote.

Lukashenko has had more than 100 activists arrested since Monday, many culled from the daily protests by thousands in downtown Minsk. Many fear a violent crackdown when the opposition mounts a major rally Saturday.

As far as I know, there are no violence now. It seems, to be no revolutions in Minsk.
