Ministry of Internal Affairs: 400,000 people participated in Festivities on 5 April


More than 400,000 people participated in the street celebrations on 5 April, dedicated to Catholic Easter and Orthodox Palm Sunday. According to the MIA statement, the public order has been successfully maintained.

It seems that Protestants, who also celebrated Easter on 5 April, were no taken into account by the police.

As KRYNICA.INFO has reported, Easter monday was a holiday in Belarus but in 1998 President Aleksandr Lukashenko cancelled this tradition, leaving only Sunday for celebration.
