Officers of the Biaroza District Police Department confiscated almost 5,000 leaflets with calls to boycott the presidential election from Andrei Kavalevich, the son of the head of the Biaroza district organization of the Conservative Christian party Belarusian Popular Front. This happened when Andrei and his mother were on the way home.

Andrei was guarded to the police department, where the police drew an appropriate report. The leaflets didn’t have any imprint. As we learned later, the confiscated leaflets were passed to the ideological department of the Biaroza District Executive Committee.
