On 10 November at 10 p.m. the police detained the activist of the Young Front Mikalai Dzemidzenka who had taken part in the action in support to the young oppositionists who had been tried at Leninski district court for holding an anticommunist picket near the KGB office on 7 November.

The police took Dzemidzenka to the police station. There they asked him about his activities in Minsk, to which he had moved from Navapolatsk several months ago, and warned him against being ‘too active’.

Mikalai Dzemidzenka considers his detention as a manifestation of politically motivated harassment.
