HUM department store in Minsk has raised a 28-million invoice for participants of the entrepreneurs’ rally on 10 January, an activist of the United Civil Party Mikhail Pashkevich said to Nasha Niva.

‘An interesting fact, metro, bookstore Tsentralnaya, cinema Tsentralny, McDonald’s and the shopping center Stalitsa do not have any material claims to action participants, only GUM has. They said the action participants prevented work of the store, as a result of which it lost about 28 million rubles,’ M. Pashkevich says.

Pashkevich also told not 14, but 27 active participants of the street action figured in the KGB materials presented to police. So the number of persons involved in the criminal case can increase.
