Andrei Kuzmitski, an activist of the Young Belarus, says that a KGB officer visited him at home.

He immediately enumerated all the cases of putting white-red-white flags in Minsk over the recent month and charged Andrei Kuzminski with it, RFE/RL informs.

Andrei Kuzminski told that the KGB officer demanded him write a refusal from membership in the Young Belarus and provide information about the leader, Artur Finkevich, and members of the organization.

As said by the young activist, the talk lasted for about an hour. The KGB officer threatened him with instigation of a criminal case for participation in the unregistered organization. Besides, he said that symbols of Young Belarus looked like Nazi ones, which is punishable as well.
