On 3 August three activists of Salihorsk organization of the United Civil Party held a picket against the third presidential term to Aliaksandr Lukashenka in the center of Minsk. All of them were detained by special police forces.

At about 6 p.m. the UCP members from Salihorsk Aliaksey Prykhodzka, Tatsiana Laryionava and Natallia Zubarevich unrolled the banner: “10 years of dictatorship. Lukashenka, go away!”. They managed to hand out to passers-by the fly sheet with the heading “Where have 10 years of our lives gone?”, where the disappearances of well-known Belarusian activists were mentioned along with the persons against whom criminal cases were brought.

The detainees were taken to Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court and soon will be tried at Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court for violation of the order of mass actions, for which one can be warned, fined or arrested.
