On 16 March two "Zubr" activists, Zmitser Shchepaw and Nasta Vasilenka, were detained at Baranavichy Knitting Industry College for distributing the informational bulletin "Zubr-Baranavichy" and taken to Baranavichy City Board of Internal Affairs. The police composed on them reports for violation of Article 167-10 of the Code of Administrative Violations (activity on behalf of unregistered organization) and drove them to Baranavochy City Court. Judge Kuchyieva found the defendants guilty and fined each of them 10 basic units.

On this very day the "Zubr" activist Andrey Chyzh was released after the 7-day jail term for distribution of fly-sheets at the same college.
