Unidentified men in black wearing masks reportedly grabbed Belarusian opposition figure Maria Kolesnikova off the street on Monday, driving her away in a minibus.
Kolesnikova was a campaign partner of opposition candidate Svietlana Tsikhanouskaya who claimed victory against President Alexander Lukashenko in the August 9 elections.
The result of the election is disputed.
Witnesses say Kolesnikova was seized in central Minsk and bundled into a bus labelled “Communications.” Her phone was also apparently switched off.
Local journalist Hanna Liubakova wrote on Twitter that her Coordination Council colleague Anton Radniankou could also not be reached. (📹: DW News)
