The campaign of the Young Front City is Ours! in Homel is accompanied by arrests. Police seized ribbons in colors of the national flag and leaflets from two members of the Young Front, but the activists still managed to spread national symbols in Homel and placed a white-red-white flag on one of the bridges of the city.

On 9 June in the evening, the Homel police detained Mikalai Dzemidzenka, Deputy Chairperson of the Young Front, and Anton Nazarenka. Reports for violation of Article 23.14 of the Administrative Code have been drawn up against them (violation of the urban maintenance rules) and 316 leaflets and 200 meters of white-red-white ribbon were confiscated.
