Activist from the village of Varniany Mikalai Ulasevich has applied to the Astravets District executive Committee, asking to let him hold a picket in Astravets. By this action Mr. Ulasevich intends to express his solidarity with the Ukrainian people in its aspiration to live in the European Union.

Besides, Mr. Ulasevich continues to struggle with the
local "vertical " for a constitutional right to hold pickets on topical issues. On 12 December he filed a complaint with the court against the ban on another picket, which he intended to hold under the slogan “Bring corrupt officials to account” om 7 December. The ban was signed by the first deputy chairman of the executive committee, Andrei Yancheuski. Now the activist asks the court to initiate civil proceedings and declare the decision of the authorities illegal.
