On 12 October Andrei Zaitsaw could have turned 25. He was led to committing a suicide by a KGB agent. Homel activists of Zubr movement held several actions to commemorate their friend. Ten Zubrs stood in front of KGB building with the portraits of Andrei Zaitsaw. In 45 minutes all of them were detained for person identification. On 11 October police detained another two Zubr activists Dzianis Chykalow and Ivan Dzehtsiarow when they were posting leaflets. The detained were taken to Centralny borough police station, then to Chyhunachny borough police station and released only at 1 a.m. The police officers made several phone calls to Homel KGB department, cited the leaflets' text and suggested KGB officers should deal with the guys themselves. However, the KGB people were not interested. The policemen drew up reports of violation under Art. 143.3 of the Code of Administrative Affairs and confiscated the leaflets.
