The editorial office of Narodnaia Volia newspaper sued to Minsk City Economic Court against the refusal of Belposhta state enterprise to include the newspaper in the distribution catalog for 2006. At present the state holds the monopoly on distribution of periodicals (which is a licensed kind of activity), that’s why this refusal makes it impossible to distribute the newspaper.

-- We demand from the court to make the defendant conclude the agreement for distribution of Narodnaia Volia on the conditions analogous to those standing in the agreement for 2005, -- said the chief editor Iosif Siaredzich in his interview to BelaPAN information agency.

According to him, in the next issues of Narodnaia Volia the readers will be informed how they can defend their right of subscription to the newspaper:
-- We will simply give juridical consultation to our readers. I am sure that after this Belposhta will receive thousands of analogous suits from our readers, -- he pointed. He also assured the issue of the newspaper will continue.
