The organizing committee of “The Young Christian Democrats” public association has been denied premises to hold its founding congress, after none of its 14 bids was granted by Minsk authorities.

The Congress was scheduled for 3 November. Most of the denials refer to earlier agreements for other events, while the central House of Officers failed to specify the reason, the BCD’s press-service reports.

“Nobody expected that we could be provided with a room to hold our Congress. We have just begun the process of registration, and the authorities are already suggesting that we pose a danger to them,” says YCD leader Mrs. Maryna Khomich.
