Milinkevich demands that Lukashenka should announce national mourning


The politician appeals to announce national mourning with regard to the tragedy which happened in Pinsk on October 25. To the opinion of the leader of the movement "For Freedom!", the mourning should be announced on November 2.

Let us remind you, 14 people died due to the tragedy by now. Belarusian leaders are not interested in events which demolish the image of "flourishing Belarus", thinks the Vice-Chairman of the movement Juras Hubarevich. This letter is a demand to announce mourning, said Mr. Hubarevich in his interview to Euroradio.

Hubarevich: "This letter has been directed to Aliaksandr Lukashenka. We are convinced it is not right to leave people's grief without any attention. We are surprised with absense of reaction from the authorities. However, we cannot force the Head of the State to announce mourning. It's up to him to decide on that".

The movement "For Freedom!", in their turn, will go on turning the society's attention to this problem, stated the politician. They do not plan any other steps so far.

Besides, Uladzimir Nyaklyaeu suggested to open a bank account to collect money for the victims and their families. The "Greens" party appealed to conduct examination of dangerous enterprises.
