Hrodna activist of the United Civil Party Mrs. Aliaksandra Vasilevich has been reportedly visited by a policeman, who said the girl could face administrative charges in case she took part in the unsanctioned picket marking the 26th anniversary of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster scheduled for 26 April.

At the same time, local UCPB activists applied for staging a picket and have not received any reply from the city executive authorities yet, thus violating the official procedure that requires a decision to be issued at least three days ahead of the scheduled event.
