Some 30 people held a traditional candlelight vigil outside the headquarters of the Committee for State Security (KGB) in central Minsk on October 29 to remember Stalin terror victims.

The crowd displayed white-red-white flags and images of Aliaksandr Lukašenka’s political opponents who went missing in 1999.

At the end of the ceremony participants put candles near the entrance to the building before walking to the headquarters of the interior ministry nearby, where they also left candles.

The vigil had been organized by leading opposition politician Mikalaj Statkievič.
