The Union of Belarusian Writers held an extra-schedule assembly after the exhaustion of the agenda of the Literary Fund, organization, whose members also belong to the UBW. On 9 December about 200 literary workers decided to discuss the situation after the establishment of the pro-governmental union of writers with the deputy Mikalai Charhinets at the head. The UBW members unanimously voted for the exclusion of 12 literary workers that joined that union: Charhinets, Marchuk, Trakhimionak, Baravikova, Aurutsin, Sulianau, Ales Martsinovich, Karyzna, Papova, Pazniakou, Ryhor Sakalouski and Palikamina.
