Of them, 199 female sex workers were offering their services through the internet, 132 were detained on the streets and highways, and 27 in hotels and night clubs. This is the information disseminated by the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Almost all female sex workers were brought to the administrative responsibility in a form of a fine or administrative arrest.

“The protocols on disobedience to the law-enforcement officials and petty hooliganism were drawn in relation to the most rowdy,” MIA website says.

The majority of women were detained in Minsk, on the adjacent highways and in cafes.

Basing on testimonies of the detained, Radio “Svaboda” reported several times about mass detentions of female sex workers in Minsk ahead and during the World Championship.
