Belarus Protests Arrival of Russian Troops

Very intriguing news brief from Reuters, as the cops in Minsk find themselves stamping out anti-Russia protests:

Thousands of Russian soldiers have started to arrive in Belarus for joint exercises that will continue until Sept. 29.

Riot police moved in to disperse the meeting minutes after protesters unfurled banners saying “Russian army go home” and “No Russian occupation”.

“This is our response to the beginning of the exercises, to the entry of Russian troops onto the territory of Belarus. Belarus should not be with Russia, but with Europe,” protester Dmitry Bondarenko told journalists.
