At about 4 p.m. on 18 March in Hrodna there took place between the ultras of Nioman football club and Hrodna police. This day there was a friendly match of Nioman with the Polish Jagelonia that ended with a stand off! After the match Nioman fans larked about. According to the witnesses, they didn’t behave aggressively. The police started to cling to them - possibly it was a consequence of the ideological brainwashes. There started a violent fight, as a result of which several persons from both sides received severe injures. The police violently beat one of the fans and then refused to call an ambulance. Finally, they detained the fans and took them to a police station.
