On 2 October two police officers came to Mikalai Ulasevich apartment and drew up a report for alleged insubordination to police (Article 23.4 of the Code of Administrative Offenses) which had allegedly taken place on 21 September.

Bear in mind that on 21 September the activist was detained in Astravets for handing out electoral leaflets. Later the police searched him and his car, which was followed by a search in his village house.

The police confiscated the leaflets. According to Mr. Ulasevich, they didn't want to charge him with distribution of printed production, that's why they invented this “insubordination”.
