The approaches to the White House in Washington were blocked by military equipment

On the outskirts of the White House in Washington on Wednesday, June 3, units of heavy equipment were placed to burn out approaches to the residence of the US president. It is reported by RIA Novosti.

As it became known, on the street located opposite the White House, there are two military trucks. At the same time, a couple of tens of meters from these vehicles is a chain of soldiers with shields that bear the inscription “Military Police”.

On May 25, Minneapolis police detained African-American George Floyd. During the detention, the policeman knelt on the man’s neck. Floyd screamed that he was choking, but law enforcement officers did not pay attention to it. As a result, the man died in intensive care. This caused massive protests and riots in the United States.
