On 2 March Hrodna police interrogated a number of the activists of the local headquarters of the candidate to presidency Aliaksandr Milinkevich in connection with the appearance of anti-presidential graffiti in the city.

-- We were led to different rooms and interrogated separately about the origin of the anti-presidential graffiti, which I haven’t even seen, -- said to Pahonia Siarhei Malchyk, vice-chair of Hrodna regional headquarters of Aliaksandr Milinkevich.

The police registered the testimonies, composed the reports and let the activists go.

-- I think they summonsed us this day so that we couldn’t leave for Minsk to take part in the meeting with Aliaksandr Milinkevich, though none of us were going there, -- commented S.Malchyk.

It’s worth mentioning that several days before the police summonsed on the same case the journalist Andrei Pachobut, activist of the officially unrecognized Union of Poles in Belarus. He refused to testify.
