Vitsebsk entrepreneur who asked not to mention his name, was to have taken 8 000 copies of the book “Occasional President” by Pavel Sharamet and Sviatlana Kalinkina from Moscow to Vitsebsk. To his mind, his car was watched, because as soon as he stopped to make some trifle car repairs near the village of Babinichy, the police from Vitsebsk District Police Board and the department of economical crimes came there. They detained him and confiscated the books. The entrepreneur hoped they would either return the books or at least draw a report for their confiscation. The police refuse to do it, but many policemen have already read the book.
