The ceremony, which under normal circumstances would have become an important state event, was preceded by the controversial elections on August 9, which resulted in Lukashenko, who has been in power since 1994, declared his confident victory..

The opposition accused him of massive election fraud and said he could not be recognized as the country’s leader..

Belarus faced the prospect of imposing sanctions by the US and the EU in connection with the controversial elections, which were followed by opposition protests demanding Lukashenka’s resignation, which are suppressed by his special services.

UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Anais Marin said last week that after the elections in Belarus more than 10 thousand people were “arrested with violations” in the country, more than 500 reports of torture were received, and thousands of people were “severely beaten”.
