14 May in Hrodna the police majors Piatro Lenets and Ivan Vechar paid a visit to the human rights activist Viktar Sazonau. They drew on him a violation report under article 23.34 of the Administrative Code (violation of the rules for organizing or holding mass action) for participation in the concert of the Polish band Lombard in Hrodna.

The concert took place 2 May in Burdzeiny Street 48a, near the General Consulate of the Republic of Poland. Sazonau was standing on the roof of an adjacent house and waving a white-red-white flag.

Bear in mind that today a similar report has been composed against the chairman of Hrodna oblast branch of the United Civil Party Yury Istomin and several days ago – against Anzhalika Borys, chairman of the Union of Poles in Belarus, not recognized by the Belarusian authorities.
