The authorities became nervous Reprisals will be intensified. The warning issued is the evidence of the scared authorities. I know that the chiefs of the Prosecutor told him to issue the warning. What are the results? The execution by shooting at Kastrychnitskaia square is probable… What else? I am surprised that that they did not institute criminal proceedings? But he wrote that the fact is examined. But the time is wrong and they are simply scared”.
