Recently an activist of Homel branch of the Young Front Andrus Kuzmin has been called for a conversation to the headmaster of his school in connection to his detention during New Year celebrations.

On 31 December Andrus Kuzmin raised a white-red-white flag at one of the squares of the city where festive events were held. He was detained by police for that. At the police department an administrative report was drawn up against the underage young man for ‘violation of the public order’, website informs.

A. Yeliseyeva, the headmaster of school #38 where Andrus Kuzmin studies, rudely insulted him and threatened with a possible expulsion form the school. Besides, Mrs Eliseyeva promised to bend every effort to lock up Andrus as soon as possible if he won’t leave the Young Front.

Because of humiliating treatment by the administration of the school Andrus Kuzmin was to leave the school. He is going to enter another educational institution.
