Nazi Provocation at Reception of Polish Embassy
The Polish Embassy held a reception in the Hastsinny Dvor restaurant in Minsk on the occasion of the Polish Independence Day of 11 November. Activists of the Union of Poles from different regions of Belarus were invited to the reception. Suddenly a dozen of people dressed in some kind of a military uniform appeared at the entrance to the restaurant and started to shout out insulting words against the guests.
Editor-in-chief of the magazine Magazyn Polski na uchodzstwie Ihar Bantsar told RFE/RL these people spitted out to him and a Polish diplomat who came with his wife. According to the journalist, the unknown people raised their hands in the fascist salutation and disappeared. There were no police around, Ihar Bantsar remarked.
