The raid is connected with activity of the independent website www.orsha.eu. Ihar Kazmyarchak does not answer his phone. Local human rights activists went to Kazmyarchak's home, Radio Svaboda reports.

The website orsha.eu was launched some years ago to publish local news, including initiatives of youth organization Union, local democratic activists and opposition members.
