For the past two months in Belarus, the protests for the resignation of the President Alexander Lukashenko and for democratic reforms are ongoing. They began immediately after the preliminary results of the Presidential elections in early August. According to official data, the incumbent President Lukashenko won, but the numerous supporters of his main opponent Svetlana Tikhanovskaya started the protests in Minsk and other parts of the country the next day and demanded recognition of her victory and Lukashenko's voluntarily resignation. The protests continue up to this day.

Since the start of these large-scale protests, the global media and foreign states' attention, especially in Europe, was focused on the Belarus events. The Central Asian countries also actively monitored the situation in Belarus.
