After the rally, on 27 April, organizers of the Chernobyl Waystated at a press-conference that they are set to file a complaint to the prosecutor’s office against actions of Minsk police. Minsk police exposed to danger demonstrators by pushing them to sidewalks of Surhanau Street where construction works were underway.
At a press-conference after the rally Yury Ziankovich noted that Minsk city executive committee had chosen the dangerous route for the march. ‘However, we had an agreement with the police that on the part of Surhanau Street where sidewalk was being repaired, we would march on traffic area. It is scandalous that they started to push us out of the traffic area. It’s violation of our agreements! It means that the deputy head of the Interior Affairs department of Minsk executive committee colonel Naidzenka who personally promised us to allow passing on traffic area has no respect for his promise,’ Yury Ziankovich stated on 27 April.
