In the past few days, in Svislach district (Hrodna region) there have been held a lot of meetings with voters of Ilya Epifanau, head of health care department of Hrodna regional executive committee, who is running for the Hrodna Regional Council. Meanwhile, the meetings are arranged during working hours and held at places, which were banned by the executive authorities, including local school #2 and in the village of Patsui.

Independent observers state there are literally no opportunities for equal canvassing by the loyal candidate’s rival, member of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party Hramada Viktar Dzesiatsik.
