Belarusians are hitting the streets to protest against what they say could be a full capitulation to Moscow, lrt.lt reports.

The protesters are calling for the Belarusian leader to withstand Moscow’s pressure and not to sign a new integration deal between Belarus and Russia. The Union State agreement from 1999 is due to be renewed in 2020, and previous media reports suggested it may include a de facto confederacy between the two states.

The scope of the renewed Union State agreement that Lukashenko could sign in Sochi is unclear, as, according to the Belarusian civil society, the negotiations are classified.
