The Brest procuracy issued the civil activist Andrei Sharenda with a warning taking into account some “circumstances witnessing a violation of the Law “On mass events” (during his participation in the peaceful post-election protests on 19 December 2010 in Minsk).

As said by human rights defender Raman Kisliak, Andrei Sharenda was warned “about the inadmissibility of repeated offense” as Sharenda “actively participated in a mass event which was accompanied with gross violation of the public order and insubordination to lawful demands of public agents which resulted in an interruption of the flow of traffic”.

Raman Kisliak is surprised that a warning was issued in connection with the events of December 2010. He thinks that the procuracy's actions are connected to the present election campaign and are aimed at intimidation of opposition activists.
