Minsk politicians meet with Slonim residents under police and KGB surveillance
Minsk politicians Yury Hubarevich (first deputy chairman of the
Movement "For Freedom"), Aliaksei Yanukevich (Chairman of
the Belarusian Popular Front Party) and Andrei Dzmitryieu (deputy
head of the civic initiative "Tell the Truth") spent the
whole day of 6 August in Slonim.
They met with the local residents and answered their questions. The meetings were held at the central market, the city polyclinic and in the village of Dzeraunaya.
Yury Hubarevich, Aliaksei Yanukevich and Andrei Dzmitryieu also wanted to talk with the chief physician of the Slonim hospital Yury Piatselski, but he hid himself from the Minsk guests, and his secretary fearfully told them that they had lunch. However, after the lunch Mr. Piatselski disappeared at all.
The politicians ended their visit by a meeting with members of the Slonim association of democratic forces.
All meetings in Slonim were vigilantly watched by the police and the KGB,who shot certain moments of the meetings on photo and video.
