A number of graffiti, a banner and leaflets appeared on June 18 in Vitsebsk. The new movement is called Bunt (Revolt). One of its activists Dzianis Dzianisau said that the name is an appeal. After the presidential election there were lots of people who wanted to do something, but did not know how. We want to activate the people, by saying that the election was a slap-stick. We need not wait for five years, for we do not have a legitimate president. We have to revolt!

The movement was joined by ex-Zubr and Young Front members, together with newer activists.
