In the evening 26 August in Hrodna Vadzim Saranchukou, the Human Rights Center Viasna lawyer, was detained in Hrodna Region.
Vadzim Saranchukou came to the railroad station to get a ticket to Vaukavysk and go to the Union of Poles Congress. When V.Saranchukou was in the chain, he was approached by police and asked to show the documents. Saranchukou had the passport on him. Despite this, he had to go to the railroad police station "for an identification procedure", which lasted so long that Vadzim Saranchukou did not set off for Vaukavysk on that day.
