Ukraine: Anti-Lukashenko Rally in Kyiv

LJ user samuel_smith posts photos from a rally (RUS) that took place in front of the Belarusian embassy in Kyiv today. The protesters mocked the recent election in Belarus by casting ballots that had no alternative candidates on them, thus giving Aleksandr Lukashenko 183% of the vote. They also went to Ukraine's foreign ministry and demanded that Lukashenko is proclaimed persona non grata in Ukraine. (Complete English translation is here.)
