On 14 November the activist of the campaign team of Vital Rymasheuski Mikola Bausiuk was detained at the frontier point Pryvalka. He was set down the bus by which he was returning home from Lithuania and kept at the frontier point for about 2 hours. He was subject to personal examination. His belongings were searched as well. Mr. Bausiuk is convinced that such attention from the side of border guards is connected to his participation in the electoral process.

The list of the public and political activists who are detained and examined on the border in the Hrodna region is growing all the time. Some of them (members of the BPF Party Vadzim Saranchukou and Yauhen Skrabutan) filed inquiries with the Hrodna border group, but haven’t received any answers so far.
