The car was taken to Dubrovenski District Department of Internal Affairs (Vitsebsk Region). According to the paper made, the newspaper was attached because it “was not accredited”.
According to the newspaper editor Mikola Markievich, earlier the Smolensk printers that printed the newspaper received a letter from the Ministry of Information of Belarus signed by the Deputy Minister Lilia Ananich. The letter said that the Ministry asked the printers to stop printing the newspaper because it had not been registered in a properly way. “This is all lies. We went through the re-registration procedure and have a properly registered status”, said Mikola Markievich.
