According to the member of the Human Rights Center “Viasna”, on 21 July in Homel there was held an action that was devoted to the tenth anniversary of Aliaksandr Lukashenka’s presidency. At about 6 p.m. youth came to the central supermarket of Homel, holding posters and “expressing great love to president”. However, they held the posters below the belt. The head of Homel Tsentralny Borough Board of Internal Affairs Stryzhniow threatened to detain the actions participants, but then decided not to do it because it is not prohibited to stand with portraits of A. Lukashenka in public places.
