Independent observers report numerous cases of enforced involvement of the staff of Minsk kindergartens in canvassing activities for the current President Lukashenka, despite lack of membership on his campaign team.

They are forced to canvass for signatures in their non-working hours. In several cases, kindergarteners were threatened with dismissal in case they do not collect the necessary amount of signatures for Aliaksandr Lukashenka.
