Barauliany branch of Minsk district police department dropped the criminal case against the two youngsters who were detained on the eve of Dziady holiday (ancestors’ day, celebrated on 2 November) for breaking memorial crosses in Kurapaty wood, where many people were shot during Stalin’s rule.

The official reason for dropping the case is that there is no sufficient evidence for passing the case to the court.
