According to BelaPAN

One of the victims, Mikita Pauroz said that about 30 persons went from Savetskaia Square to Lenin Square of Hrodna, shouting Heil Hitler! and insults at anti-fascist movement of Belarus. Mikita Pauroz expressed his dissatisfaction with their behavior and was beaten. According to him, the offenders went in line, but ran away when the police appeared.

-- The police didn’t manage to detain anyone. It is the first march of neo-Nazi I’ve seen for the last five years, -- Pauroz said.

According to Hrodna journalist Andrei Pachobut, the activity of radical neo-Nazi groups in Hrodna has recently increased:
-- About three weeks ago neo-Nazi graffiti started appearing on the walls. To my mind, it was preparation to this action, -- he said.

Only Hrodna Kastrychnitski borough police said they didn’t know anything about the Nazi procession.
