Alexander Taraikovsky (Belarusian: Аляксандр Валер’евіч Тарайкоўскі, Russian: Александр Валерьевич Тарайковский) (26 March 1986 – 10 August 2020) was a participant in protests against the false numbers of the 2020 Belarusian presidential election.[2][3][4]

He was shot by the police on the evening of August 10, 2020, near Pushkinskaya metro station in Minsk.[1][5][6] He was buried at Western cemetery in Minsk on August 15, 2020.[7][8][9] The death of Taraikovsky caused more protests.[10][11][12][13]

On December 21, 2020, the representative of the public initiative "Belarusian People's Tribunal" Igor Makar published the materials of the preliminary investigation. They claim that Aleksandr Taraikovsky was deliberately and cynically killed by an employee of the Special Anti-Terrorist Unit "Almaz" Korovin Nikita Yuryevich(born in 1993), with the complicity of other unidentified employees of this spesial forces unit.[14]

On November 19, 2020, Jim Gilmore, United States Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, spoke on a three-month end of the investigation into the death of Alexander Taraikovsky. He said that it is another sign of “the impunity with which Belarusian security forces pursue their violent crackdown on peaceful protesters.”[15]

On November 26, 2020, European Parliament discussed the situation in Belarus.[16][17] The discussion resulted in the adoption of a resolution, supported by an absolute majority of deputies, calling for a "prompt, thorough, impartial and independent investigation into the death of Alexander Taraikovsky."[18]
