Tatsiana Bialko lives in the village of Dzieraviančycy in the Slonim district and works as a cleaner at the local farm.

She is a member of the precinct election commission at Dzieraviančycki polling station No. 32, to which she was nominated by the Slonim city organization of the public association BPF “Adradžennie”.

According to the woman, several days ago the head of the farm warned her against going to any precinct commissions for fear of being dismissed for truancy. The head of the farm also said that the order not to let her anywhere was given by the acting head of the enterprise “Pieramožac”, Mikalai Hrechyshnikau.

“I started explaining her that I was a member of the PEC and sat there together with the head of the village council and other commissioners. However, she didn't let me go there anyway. Then I told I would quit the work on my own. In some time, the head of the farm calmed down and stopped posing claims to me. Most probably, Hrechyshnikau has consulted the head of the PEC,” said Tatsiana Bialko.
