It is possible that this death [of a Belarusian protester Raman Bandarenko] could be used as some sort of “sacred sacrifice” to provide an impetus for the protests and riots against President Alexander Lukashenko.
It will likely somehow be connected to him through claims of the opposition, since, for a while now, they’ve been losing steam and running in circles.
An unfounded claim, using the trope of "sacred sacrifice". The concept is similar to that of "False Flag" - means of disinformation, frequently employed by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets.
Mr. Bandarenka was detained efter being beaten up by masked plainclothesmen, who never identified themselves. Bandarenka was forced into an unmarked van. Two hours later, he was brought to a hospital by ambulance from a Police precinct in Central Minsk. This can be established from the admission documentation of the hospital. Despite several hours of urgent surgery, Mr. Bandarenko's life could not be saved.
