This is not the first time Vaishnavs come to Orša. One can sometimes see them near the city market, where they sell their books under the guise of receiving donations from them.

However, according to orsha.eu, this time they paid a noisy visit to Orša. Several people in exotic clothes and with unusual musical instruments proceeded along the streets, singing religious hymns. They managed to reach the suburb of Ranica, where they were detained by police. The reasons for the detention aren't known yet.

This is not the first time when Vaishnavs are detained by police. One of the latest detentions took place in Viciebsk.
