On 5 September the 10-day arrest to the three activists of Zubr movement who had taken part in the picket of solidarity with their arrested Georgian partners Giorgi Kandelaki and Luka Tsuladze was over. About 20 Zubr members took care of the prisoners during these 10 days, passed food parcels and press to them. Aliaksandr Kurbatski, Aliaksiei Liaukovich and Natallia Ushko were met with flowers and champagne at the entrance of the detention center in Akrestsin Street.
The prisoners said they have met the arrested Kmara activist in their cell. They were very grateful for the picket of support. For Natallia Ushko this was the first arrest.
Aliaksandr Kurbatski took part in an oppositional action for the second time only. He said:
-- It was the second time I took part in a political action and was arrested. It is very difficult to spend 10 days in jail. It is not a health resort and the food leaves much to be desired. However, it is not very frightful. One can spend here even 15 days. In any case, I will take part in any political actions I will be able to.
