In the morning of 6 March the deputy chair of Hrodna city headquarters of A.Milinkevich Vadzim Saranchukou was released from the detention center, where he spent five days of arrest for alleged disorderly conduct. We should remind that on 1 March he was detained by policemen in plain clothes and the following day the judge of Hrodna Kastrychnitski Borough Court Liudmila Zhuk sentenced him to five days of jail. Vadzim’s colleagues said it was probably done to prevent him from going to Minsk, for the meeting with Milinkevich that took place in the center of the city on 2 March. As a result of the arrest he also couldn’t take part in the organization of Milinkevich’s meeting with the electorate in Hrodna on 4 March.
