In the evening of 7 October the coordinator of Zubr movement threw down from the roof of a house in former Frantsysk Skaryna Avenue a pile of fly-sheets with the urge to join the action of 16 October. When he came down by pompier ladder he was detained by a KGB worker. The police composed on him a report for anti-sanitation, that’s how they qualified throwing down the fly-sheets. Then they accused him in small disorderly conduct – he allegedly used foul language and didn’t react to the policemen’s words. He spent three days at the detention center in Akrestsin Street. On 10 October Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court sentenced him to the three days of arrest which he has already spent.

It was not his first trial, but Mikita Sasim is indignant at the police actions:
-- What they wrote in their reports is bold lies. Moreover, it was confirmed by a witness. They simply don’t seem to have enough political articles, that’s why they give any accusations they like.

After the trial Mikita Sasim came to Minsk Tsentralny Borough Board of Internal Affairs. There he was detained once again and taken to Baranavichy military committee, where he received the summons to come for medical examination the following day.

On 11 September he came there and showed the medical certificates witnessing that on 16 September he received cranial trauma with brain concussion, after which he received a direction for further examination.
