The administrative commission of the Maskouski district of Minsk (headed by ) sentenced Eduard Balanchuk to pay 105,000 rubles (about $35) for posting Young Front adverts on the notice boards at the entrance of multi-stored houses in the town of Babruisk. The activist was informed about it by a special letter which he received on 3 December.

 According to the letter, his actions were considered as a violation of the ‘rules of urban development’ (Article 21.14, part 2 of the Code of Administrative Offences).

Mr. Balanchuk believes that the ruling of the commission is absurd, as notice boards are intended for posting adverts, and intends to appeal it at the Maskouski District Executive Committee of Minsk.
