Minsk city executive committee banned the picket ‘Give Belarusian children Belarusian school’ because the action would allegedly hinder the traffic in Banhalor Square. The association of right-wing forces Right Alliance intended to hold the action on 16 September in Druzhby Narodau Park in Banhalor Square.

The head of Right Alliance Yury Karetnikau stated he did not understand this formulation of Minsk authorities, as there was no traffic in the park
