Ukrainian officials say Belarusian opposition leader Maria Kolesnikova was arrested after resisting being expelled to Ukraine by tearing up her passport at the border. On Monday, witnesses reported she was snatched off the streets of Minsk and driven off in a van. This all comes one month after authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko claimed victory in an election many say was rigged. On Sunday, 100,000 people took to the streets of Minsk as protests demanding Lukashenko step down continue to gain steam.
