Uladzimir Hadun and his family did not agree to voluntary live their apartment at house #18 in Herouyau Abarony Brestskay Krepastsi Street. They think that the authorities want them to leave the house not because it is in the "state of emergency", but because of the peace of land in the city center.

The family, which has a small child, disproves the conclusions of officials of the Brest City Executive Committee that their wooden house is in the state of emergency and therefore they need to agree to moving to a block house at the city's outskirts. Uladzimir Hadun states, that the house is quite good for living – there are water, gas, heating and sewage. Moreover, it is located near the city park, children's and medical institutions – all that cannot be easily accessed in the remote suburbs, to which the authorities are trying to forcibly evict them.

According to the results of the expertise, ordered by the Brest City Executive Committee, the wear of the house is 68% (just 3% more than the legal norm). However, the officials insist on the necessity of the urgent resettlement of the dwellers and explain their demands with the necessity to extend the territory of the city park.

Brest Region Court upheld the position of the city authorities and the court of the first instance, leaving in force the verdict ordering the eviction of the Haduns.
