Some 50 people, mostly members of the Conservative Christian Party (CCP), took part in an annual commemorative procession staged Sunday in Minsk to honor the memory of the victims of Stalinist terror on the occasion of Dzyady (Remembrance of Ancestors Day).
The procession, organized by the CCP and authorized by the Minsk city government, ran from the Minsk City Palace of Culture to Loshytsa Park, a Stalin-era mass execution site.
The procession ended with a rally in Loshytsa Park, one of the nine known sites in and near Minsk where people were executed and buried by the NKVD in the 1930s and the early 1940s.
