Mass protests are taking place in Myanmar for the third day in a row as a result of the military seizure of power in the country. According to the Mizzima portal, in the capital of Naypyidaw, police officers used water cannons to disperse the demonstrators. Footage of the dispersal of the protest was posted on Twitter.


Clashes with law enforcement officers or victims of the riots were not specified.


On February 1, the military declared a state of emergency in Myanmar for a year, displacing the leadership of the republic. They explained their actions as allegedly large-scale falsifications during the November 2020 elections.


High-ranking officials have been detained, including President Vin Mying and State Counselor, Foreign Minister and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, whose party won the elections and was supposed to begin forming a government.
