MINSK, 23 October (BelTA) – Street protests are just a show that people wanted. The Belarusian singer Alyona Lanskaya made the statement on the air of the Belarusian TV channel ONT, BelTA has learned.
The singer believes: “Everything that's happening in the streets are a show that people wanted. They don't need changes. They don't know what they want. I am convinced that if you ask every one of them, few will be able to answer what they want.”
In her opinion, some people take part in protests due to some ambitions, some do it in exchange for financial remuneration, and some do it to have fun. “It is some kind of trash, some action for people to a large degree. Particularly for young Belarusians. They want to run around and get chased by police. They are having fun like that,” the singer is convinced. Alyona Lanskaya noted that people, who deliberately want to break laws and come up with strategies for future protests, also participate in street actions.
“I had an opportunity to observe them: people who were all about love in daytime turned to monsters from hell at night and wrote a huge number of unpleasant phrases containing curses, the desire for someone else's demise, and tried to put pressure on other people's will. I've had my fair share of it,” Alyona Lanskaya added.
