A stranger stole a panting replica depicting Aliaksandr Lukashenka and 12 Belarusian government officials. The painting by famous artist Ales Marachkin is titled The Belarusian Toys.

The incident occurred during the signature-collection picket in support of entrepreneurs’ movement activist Alyaksandr Taustyka near the Centralny supermarket in the Belarusian capital of Minsk. While policemen were checking the picketers’ IDs, a man wearing shorts and a hoodie got hold of the replica of the painting and ran away towards GUM, BelaPAN reports.

The picketers are going to lodge a robbery complaint with the police.
