Larysa Mazheika, a member of the electoral team of Uladzimir Niakliayeu, collected signatures in a Biaroza suburb, Paunochny Haradok, a place where many military pensioners dwell. One of the citizens was outraged by the proposal to put her signature in support of Niakliayeu’s candidacy. She insulted the collector of signatures, called the police and detained her till their arrival.

However, the policemen just checked the documents of the collector of signatures, apologized and drove away.
