An activist of the United Civil Party’s Mahiliou office Mikalai Hladyshau staged today a picket to protest against the deployment of a Russian air base in Belarus, and was eventually detained by local police. After a while, he was released but told to appear at the police department later for further procedures.

As local human rights activist Barys Bukhel told Viasna’s press-service, the UCP activist was interrogated by the police.

Mikalai Hladyshau picketed outside the building of Mahiliou city executive committee, holding a banner “No to the Russian Airbase in the Land of Belarus.”
