On 30 August in Minsk the police detained the entrepreneur Illia Dabratvor.

The possible reason for the detention was the episode which occurred at about 8 p.m., when Illia went by metro with an unfurled white-red-white flag in honor of the release of the leader of the “Young Front” Zmitser Dashkevich from jail. Mr. Dabratvor was detained by the police at the tube station “Uruchcha”.

The same day he was taken to the detention center in Akrestsin Street. Illia Dabratvor is an activist of the Solidarity movement “Razam” (Czech Republic). He was repeatedly subjected to fines and arrests for participation in opposition's actions.
