Orsha town executive committee released its decision #1371, imposing a ban on maintaining canvassing activities in a number of public places across the town. The decision was posted on the committee’s official web-site and later published in Orsha major state-run newspaper ‘Arshanskaya hazeta’.

However, the two versions of the same decision are absolutely different in content. The on-line version names shops, food service and social welfare facilities among locations banned for canvassing. Meanwhile, the newspaper does not mention them.
