A new administrative trial for the publication of photographs is expected to be held in Hrodna region. On 25 March the civil activists of the city of Biarozauka traditionally commemorated a general of the Belarusian People's Republic, Kiprian Kandratovich, reburied near the Orthodox church in the district capital, Voranava in May 2000.

Civil activists from Lida district come there each year to lay flowers and light candles. This year the memorial action wasn't watched by the police. However, an administrative case was brought by Voranava police after the appearance of photos from the action in the internet.
