Unfortunately, I live in Minsk and now it is not safety here. Police can force you to unblock your Phone and show them your private messages. Policeman can stop people in Red and White clothes, someone paid a fine for this, someone was arrested for it.

Fake data about safty. Nothing changed on Minsk streets over 3 years. Very safe city(if you are not going to riot and fight with police).

You could be stolen on the street or at home by government people dressed in black.
30 000 people detained since august, thousands tortured, few killed.
You can't call it a safe place for sure.
'Unathorized demonstration' and other pseudo-juridicial constructs mentioned below are used heavily by propaganda and in actual suits as a way of limiting freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, which are under a heavy pressure.
You could be sentenced not for your actions but just for a clothes of specific color, or simply for asking the policeman some questions or by making a photo of their actions.
Yes, Minsk is still quite safe in terms of murder rates or criminal attacks.
But to be safe from authorities you better avoid center of the city on the weekends.

You people want to tell us that Moscow is now safer than Minsk ?? Really?? Give me a break ...May be you don't really know Byelorussian people ..

How does protesting against fake elections makes a country unsafe ?wth..Minsk is safe even more than western cities....

I agree with Elt, these data are fake. I've lived in Minsk for more of 5 years. Minsk is one of the safety city in the world if you respect the law. Of course if you participate in an unauthorized demonstration against the government you can end up in jail.
But this happens in Minsk as well as in Whashington. But that's another thing.

This is FAKE data. Minsk is one of the SAFEST CITIES in Europe. Some people is rating Minsk as unsafe because they are angry because Belarus didn't impose any freedom restrictions, so they rate it badly so that other travelers are afraid and don't want to go. It is pathetic to get to the point of wanting to ruin a reputation and give false information just because you don't accept that other people in the world don't want to have a miserable life and are sheep like you.

Belarusians are not frightened by upcoming changes. What we are really afraid of - remaning lever of violence and law violations to stay with Lukashenko dictatorship.

I dont agree. It's very dangerous in Belarus. When you go out, you can be kidnapped occasionally and put in jail.
