In Belarus, the delinquents' isolation centers and sobering-up stations are reorganized. The corresponding decree № 307 "On the issues of improvement of the internal affairs of the Republic of Belarus" was signed by Aliaksandr Lukashenka on 8 July.

"The reorganization of delinquents' isolation centers and medical sobering-up stations and their conversion to subdivisions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is prescribed. The medical sobering-up stations will be renamed as specialized isolation facilities in order to eliminate the negative perception of the previous titles. The categories of people who can be placed in these facilities, the order of payment for the services and maintenance and the status of the medical workers working there are defined," reads the information of the press service.
