On 12 December the activist of "Zmena" (the youth wing of "Tell the Truth" civil initiative) was summonsed to the Maskouski District criminal-executive inspection of Minsk, where he is registered for preventive supervision and has to regularly pay visits there to get registered.

At the inspection he was detained and guarded to the Pershamaiski District Police Department of Minsk, where a report under Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (violation of the order of organizing and holding mass events) was drawn up.

After this, the activist was guarded to the Pershamaiski District Court of Minsk. The court appointed the trial on 17 December and released Pavel until that time.

Vinahradau's wife Sviatlana thinks that the detention of husban can be connected with another "toy picket" – this time it was organized on the Human Rights Day, 10 December, near the National Library.
