Stas Senakosau, a minor activist, was kept in the police department of Leninski district of Minsk for 3 hours.

As said by policemen, the activist allegedly was pasting Young Front stickers. While being escorted, Stas told to his friends that the reason for his detention was a T-shirt with a slogan “Long live Belarus!” he had on.

Stas Senakosau was detained earlier for the T-shirt “Long live Belarus!” It happened on July 3 at the opening ceremony of Mahiliou town hall. Seven other activists were detained then, RFE/RL reminds.
