Twelve persons have been killed and over 100 injured as a result of an explosion at the Oktyabrskaya Metro station in Minsk on April 11, 2011. The Belarus Prosecutor-General's Office has classified the blast as a terrorist attack.

This kind of senseless and brutal acts of terror arouse increasingly strong indignation of the world public.
The General Confederation of Trade Unions, on behalf of dozens of millions of workers, strongly condemns this atrocious crime and expresses its sincere condolences to the victims, and their families and friends.

The GCTU demands severe punishment of the organizers of the terrorist attack in the Minsk metro and appeals to the government of the Republic of Belarus to take efficient measures in order to prevent any such barbaric acts in the future.

General Secretary of the GCTU
