Dozens of staff of the Belarus State Philharmonic Society sang “O Mighty God!” outside a Minsk concert hall on Thursday to show solidarity with protesters who have been injured and arrested following the country fraudulent presidential election.

They sang beautifully.

    Fantastic to see. Brave people.

    Why wouldn`t Lukashenko be shaking in fear? After all, wasn`t Stalin shaking and wetting his pants sitting in Kremlin, deciding the fate of the entire planet on hourly basis and listening to all the sarcastic “hints” about himself that Shostakovich was hiding in his symphonies?

  • Occamsrazor says:

    In Minsk there is a 10000 people demonstration against Lukashenko in a city of 2 million. They are paid by the hour by US state department.
