Young Democrats collect signatures for installment of memorial shield to Zakharanka
Yury Zakharanka, former minister of internal affairs, was kidnapped 7 May 1999. The Young Democrats marked this mournful date by collecting signatures for installment of a memorial shield to Yury Zakharanka on the wall of the house in Zhukouski Street, 9, where he used to live.
About 40 signatures have been already collected in the house. After the end of the action the signatures will be passed to Minsk city executive committee, together with a public address.
Bear in mind that in January the Young Democrats have already addressed Minsk authorities with the proposal to name a street in honor of Zakharanka and received the answer that the proposal about honoring the memory of Yu.Zakharanka could be considered only after he was officially declared dead.
