The court found Salauyova and Krutkin guilty in violation of article 22.9 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Republic of Belarus. According to the reports, drawn up in a police department, the youth activists were spreading unregistered printed materials – stickers “European Belarus” and “Polatsk- the city is ours!”
