On 7 November the police detained the car of Yury Karetnikau and ordered him to drive to the Kastrychnitski district police department without offering any explanations.

Together with Karetnikau they detained Aliaksei Skuratovich. They confiscated from the detainees a wreath made of barbed wire and booklets of the Right Alliance.

The activists of Right Alliance intended to put the wreath to the monument of Vladimir Lenin in Nezalezhnastsi Square in Minsk.

Karetnikau’s comrades-in-arms think that this groundless detention may be caused by unlawful bugging of his telephones.
