Brest city executive committee didn’t satisfy the application of Brest regional branch of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party Hramada for authorizing a picket in support of Aliaksandr Kazulin.

The only place which the executive committee defined for pickets is Locomotive stadium. ‘It’s quite difficult to draw public attention at a stadium surrounded by a concrete fence and situated in private sector. We consider it inexpedient to hold pickets there. As far as I know, at least several places are defined in all other regional centers of Belarus. We intend to apply to Brest city executive committee with the proposal to increase the number of such places in the city and include some populous places,’ commented the chair of Brest BSDP branch Ihar Maslouski.
