According to Ales Halavan, he and other members of Mikhalevich’s team face obstacles while handing leaflets to passers-by. In particular, they were expelled from the territory of the shopping center Evicom by its guards who stated that the activists had no right to hand out leaflets there and needed to apply to the presidential administration for permission.

When the activists of the electoral team refused to obey their demands, the guards got indignant and started to use obscene language, demanding that they stopped canvassing.

Near the shopping center Continent the activists had an argument with the people who called themselves policemen. In the both cases they were threatened with the use of physical violence.
