On 9 October Judge of the Supreme Court Yakhnavets liquidated the public association “Women’s Answer”. To her mind, the association authorities violated the rights of the juridical address registration and then for a long time had no juridical address at all, used the wrong seal. Sviatlana Karaliova, Head of the “Women’s Answer”, thusly commented this decision to Radio “Liberty”: “It seems that some political order is being executed. They fight against me through my organization. I don’t know why they do it. May be because I am a member of the United Civil Party or an active person and will take part in the Parliamentary election. I will agitate the “third sector” to show more political activity. Our people are to become members of the Parliament and change the law. Now it seems to be my mission.”

The Women’s Answer” was established in 2000. It conducted seminars and trainings for the women who wanted to maintain public and political activity.
