According to the chairman of Minsk city organization Young Democrats Vital Stazharou, the police detained the youth activists Maksim Siarheyets and Aliaksei Shloma.
‘On the message board in a trolleybus there was hanging a sticker dedicated to celebration of the Freedom Day, 25 March. When a policeman got into the trolleybus, an old man came up to him and pointed at the youngsters who posted it to the message board. As soon as I was near, I was detained as well,’ Stazharou said.
According to Vital, they were driven to the Haryzont factory, where a police car was standing, and then guarded to Tsentralny district police department of Minsk.
