On 8 November the Conservative-Christian party BPF held a sanctioned meeting in the memory of the victims of Stalin’s repressions shot in Loshytski ravine. About thirty people gathered near the Culture House of the worsted plant and proceeded to Loshytski ravine, where they laid down flowers to the memorial cross and lit candles.

In his speech the deputy chairman of the CCP BPF Yury Belenki emphasized that garages were constructed in the place of the fusillades and the victims’ remnants were buried under a thick layer of sand. He believes it was done to prevent the Belarusian people from learning about the truth. The meeting and the procession lasted for a little over an hour.
