Despite mass protests in Belarus, the security forces remain loyal to Lukashenko. Several people have already died from police violence. Now a 31-year-old is being beaten to death right in front of his house.
Violence against peaceful demonstrators and dissenters has escalated since the falsified presidential election in August in Belarus. A 31-year-old man has died in Minsk – the day after plainclothes security forces beat him in front of his home. Several media agencies report this.
One of the masked people grabbed the 31-year-old Roman Bondarenko
There was a verbal argument between residents and strangers. As the news portal “Tut. by” reports, citing witnesses, one of the masked people grabbed the 31-year-old Roman Bondarenko and pushed him with all his might towards a metal slide in the children’s playground. The man’s head hit the slide. Bondarenko was then reportedly beaten by two other men and finally dragged into a minibus.
A few hours later, the 31-years-old man died from his injuries
According to unconfirmed information from “Radio Liberty,” the 31-year-old spent the next hour and a half in a police department. As the doctors of a hospital in Minsk explained to the news portal “Tut.by”, Bondarenko was admitted to the clinic around midnight with cerebral edema, closed traumatic brain injury, and numerous bruises and abrasions. When a 31-year-old man was brought to the operating room, he was already in a coma, it said. After several hours of surgery, the man was initially in critical condition, according to doctors. A few hours later, the 31-year-old died from his injuries.
