On 9 July the activist of the Young Front Yaraslau Hryshchenia was summonsed to Baranavichy district police department for giving explanations concerning the blast which had taken place in the night of 3-4 July, during the celebration of the official Independence Day.

As said by Yaraslau, he was asked not only traditional questions where he was on 3-4 July and whether he knew anything about the blast. The police officers also asked him whether the Young Front leaders Zmitser Dashkevich, Zmitser Khvedaruk, Pavel Krasouski and Ivan Shyla had any relation to the explosion.

Bear in mind that several years ago the head of Zhodzina branch of the Young Front Pavel Krasouski spent 20 days behind bars on suspicion in organization of similar blast in Vitsebsk.

In response Mr. Hryshchenia wrote a statement that Young Front had no relation to the terrorist act and the blast in Minsk was a state provocation.
