In Mahiliou a meeting of youth activists with the opposition activist Uladzimir Navasiad has taken place. Participants of the meeting exchanged ideas on some issues of youth democratic movement and their possible participation in upcoming local elections.

In the beginning of the meeting Minsk guests shared their impressions on forced visit to a police department of Mahiliou region. They told that their micro bus was stopped by police a few kilometres before Mahiliou. They were placed to another car and taken to a police department. They were questioned about their plans. Minsk guests were released only after they assured policemen that they hadn’t been planning to take part in any rallies in Mahiliou, and that there were no foreigners among them.

By the way, policemen asked political activists about foreigners for the second time.
