‘I was summonsed to the KGB department because I am against the authorities and therefore am a suspect, that’s what I was told there’, says Alena Miadzvedzeva. ‘Lieutenant-colonel Aleh Akhremenka and the deputy chair of Babruisk KGB department Siarhei Zemliakou spoke with me. They showed to me pictures and identikits of different men. I asked them if whether I had to show them my passport to prove that I am not a man. Then they started asking whether I was I could shoot, as my husband was a military officer.

Mrs. Miadzvedzeva says that on the day when the explosion took place in Minsk, she was in Moscow. She thinks that Babruisk KGB department will continue summonsing other independent candidates on this case, because they told her they had received a ‘ruling on blasts’ and were to check all local oppositionists.
